About Dr. T. Sloane Guy,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. T. Sloane Guy and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 1994. To date, I have performed approximately over 5,000 cardiac surgeries, of which over 4,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

I believe my greatest strength is my passion for making mitral valve repair surgeries less invasive, with shorter recovery times.
This has been made possible by robotic surgical approaches, advances in pain management, and percutaneous techniques. This has allowed me and my excellent surgical team to perform the least invasive mitral valve repairs in history, with our largest incision in the body being only 8 millimeters.
7 Patient Reviews for
"I read that Dr. Guy was one of the best robotic heart surgeons in the country. It made the most sense for us to make the trip back down from Minnesota, and it was definitely worth it. Just two days after the surgery, I was leaving the hospital and feeling great. I can’t believe what the team was able to do through these tiny incisions. I remember when my brother had open heart surgery, and this is a totally different experience."
-- Bill Mayfield, heart valve surgery patient
"Awesome doctor and surgery!"

"Dr. Sloane Guy is a great doctor. I was lucky to find an experienced professional like him."

"Dr. Guy repaired my mitral valve via a minimally-invasive robotic procedure. I selected him per the recommendation of my cardiologist.
Two months after my surgery, I am very happy and satisfied with my decision. The operation had the best possible outcome. Even though my mitral valve was severely impaired, resulting to a high degree of regurgitation, Dr. Guy was able to avoid a mechanical valve replacement, and a sternotomy.
Two weeks after the operation, I could walk outdoors for 1/2 to 1 hour at a time, twice a day. Test performed by my cardiologist showed a normal valve repair, and I returned to work less than six weeks after the operation. I am currently making great progress at my cardiac rehabilitation program.
Dr. Guy is one of few surgeons in the country and the world who have mastered the complex and delicate minimally invasive robotic mitral valve surgery. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs this operation.
Thank you Dr. Guy!"

"Dr. Guy was a fantastic choice to perform my wife's Mitral Valve Repair via Lateral Endocscopic Approach using Robotic assistance.
When we met Dr. Guy he was absolutely the most up front surgeon we talked to (we talked to 3 others in person or on the phone). Never once did he down play the way other surgeons were operating and recommended the names of those we should talk to if we were looking for more traditional approaches. He was straight forward, concise, knowledgeable and made time to talk to us, even staying late on a Friday after a surgery to answer any and all questions we had.
During the surgery he made sure his entire team kept me and my wife's family up to date on the surgical proceedings, gave us a detailed description of what occurred during the surgery when he was finished and followed up with us daily until we were discharged. We left the hospital after 4 days and are recovering daily in the comfort of our home.
I would recommend Dr. Guy and the staff he has assembled to anyone."

"Dr. T. Sloane Guy is fantastic. He is right to the point and tells you each step you will go through. He does extensive testing before hand, which is good because it saved my life. He is very caring. I was up and around in 3 weeks (my other doctors told me 3 to 6 months). I would recommend him to anyone who needs heart surgery."
-- Arthur Rundstrom, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Robotic Surgery, 10/02/2012
"Dr. Guy is friendly, honest and truly wants what's best for his patients. He fully explained my procedure and really put me at ease by being direct and honest. Dr. Guy saved my life."
-- Arthur Perry, Pulmonary Valve, Valve Replacement, 08/08/2012
"Dr. T. Sloane Guy performed aortic valve replacement surgery using a minimally-invasive, 3 inch cut procedure.The surgery was brilliant and I'm back university teaching full time. Dr. Guy is a caring, compassionate, skilled surgeon."
-- Joseph Gowaskie, Aortic Valve, Mini Sternotomy, 12/09/2011
