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 several thousand cardiac surgeries, of which hundreds involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital - Plano. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is meticulous attention to detail both in-and-out of the operative room. In clinic, I assure that all relevant tests are completed so the correct operation is performed in the safest and least invasive way possible. In the operating room, careful attention is paid to surgical techniques, to assure the best valve repair or replacement is attained.
Finally, postoperatively, I make sure each patient is receiving 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.

"Dr. George was extremely kind and very thorough when explaining my surgery procedure. I was so scared and his compassion and his beliefs helped me be less afraid.
I feel that Dr. George and our Heavenly Father saved my life. My sons and my family and friends who spoke to Dr. George have praised his knowledge, dedication and bedside manner. I’ve been told that he would definitely be the doctor they would want to care for them if they need cardiac help.
Dr. George is sincere and his kindness can be felt through his words and his care. I feel so blessed to have had Dr. George as my surgeon and I will continue to sing his praises and he is an incredible asset to Baylor Scott & White."

"Dr. George was very informative and spent time prior to surgery explaining in detail the pros/cons and risk factors.
Excellent bedside manner - very friendly. Highly recommend. Surgery was complex due to other health factors. Surgery was success and we are very appreciative."
-- Paul Ingram, Aortic Valve, Mitral Valve, Valve Replacement, 10/05/2021
Other doctors would not take me as a patient. It was a third redo on my valve. Dr. George approached it with a positive attitude for a successful surgery.
His faith restored my faith after being told I was living on borrowed time by a previous cardiologist. I would highly recommend him he’s brilliant! "

Dr. George's skill is superior to none. Most of all during a very stressful and horrific time in our lives. He was a Blessing and a light to the end of the dark tunnel. We deeply appreciate him and his staff and Baylor Scott & White Heart Hospital!"

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."
