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 3,000 cardiac surgeries, of which over 2,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my extensive training and experience with robotic techniques. I use the robot and other minimally invasive methods because they let me make highly precise heart repairs through the smallest incisions possible. This allows my patients to worry less, heal faster, have less pain, and go home sooner.
I believe heart surgery today has tremendous power to fix things, to make life-changing repairs, but I also want to get in, get out, with the least amount of collateral damage. Do no harm. That’s what the latest technology allows me to do. That’s what I offer my patients. That’s the focus of the whole cardiac team and nursing staff here at Weill Cornell Medicine.
5 Patient Reviews for
"Dr. Guy repaired my mitral valve via a minimally invasive robotic procedure on May 5, 2015. I selected him per the recommendation of my cardiologist, even though others were insisting I go to the Cleveland Clinic on its reputation and high published ranking.
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."
