About Dr. Thomas Molloy,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Thomas Molloy and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Dartmouth Medical School in 1981. To date, I have performed approximately 4,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 2,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at hospitals including Adventist Medical Center and Oregon Health Sciences University. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is innovation. Through clinical experience and mastery of the latest innovations in cardiac surgery I am able to offer my patients the safest and least invasive solution to their cardiac valve problem. As medical director of three cardiac surgical programs over the last 20 years, I have also learned how to design and oversee a cardiac surgery delivery system that results in the best outcomes for patients.
The Northwest Regional Heart Center cares for patients in a dedicated, universal bed cardiac unit. There are no transfers between stages of care as all beds are acuity adjustable. Pre- and post-operative patients are cared for in a unit staffed by cardiac specialty nurses. In addition, a dedicated team of cardiac anesthesiologists, all certified in transesophogeal echocardiography, is available to provide care 24 hours a day 7 days per week.
At The Northwest Regional Heart Center daily multidisciplinary rounds insure that appropriate specialists participate in every patients care. The result is the best outcomes in the region based on mortality, morbidity, length of stay, and valve repair rates.
