About Dr. Timothy George,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Timothy George and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Emory University School of Medicine in 2007. To date, I have performed approximately 400 cardiac surgeries, of which 200 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is meticulous attention to detail both in and outside of the operative room. In clinic, I assure that all relevant tests are completed so the correct operation is performed in the safest, least invasive way possible. In the operating room, careful attention is paid to surgical technique to assure the best valve repair or replacement is attained. Finally, postoperatively, I make sure each patient is receiving the optimal medical management from our experienced team to assure the best outcome with the shortest possible hospital stay. Through careful attention to detail, our patients receive the right operation, correctly performed, through the least invasive incision possible.

"I have had L- VAD put in my heart. Dr George is by far the best cardiac surgeon , and a great man he would come by my room at least 2 times a day. And the other Doctors and nurse practitioner in his office where there 2 or 3 times a day checking on progress. Dr George also has the best bed side manor of any Doctor I have known. It is as if he is your next door neighbor. He saved my life and I can’t say enough great things about him Ralph Mardis "

"Dr. Timothy George performed my surgery at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano. I had mitral and tricuspid valve repair and also an ablation. Dr. George was easy to talk with and explained the procedure and options well. During my visits to his office he gave me all the time I needed to ask questions and never seemed hurried. I would highly recommend Dr. George and also the entire staff of the hospital. I was treated royally. "

I had a ruptured chord on my posterior leaflet of my mitral valve and had a successful port access repair. I was driving in 2 weeks, back to the office in 3 weeks and hiking in the mountains in 3 months.
I appreciate Dr. George's expertise in some of these amazing procedures that have become possible in modern medicine. I would highly recommend him."

Eight weeks after surgery and I am already hiking around the mountains in Colorado.
As a patient all one can do is pick the best doctor and facility to minimize the risks of serious surgery and I think this is the doctor and facility to choose."

Being a mid-forty-year-old, it came as a shocking surprise to find that I needed heart surgery and not only that but that I needed it immediately. My surgery was difficult and from the myriad of stories I've been told, I should not be walking this Earth right now. My surgery (single) increased to multiple surgeries due to unforeseen complications. However, Dr. George never gave up on me. After MANY painstaking days and nights of uncertainty, I finally opened my eyes again. I floated in and out of consciousness, was totally immobile, had serial setbacks and had to be on full ventilation.
Today I can walk in the park with my daughter, drive myself intermediate distances, cook, go to the movies (Yeah!), workout at the rehabilitation center and enjoy a healthier lifestyle than ever before.
I thank Dr. George for being the type of surgeon that seeks the root causality of a complicated dilemma such as mine. If you or anyone you encounter is in need of heart surgery, I can give no higher recommendation than to say: I know for a fact that Dr. George saved my life."
