About Dr. Trevor Upham,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Trevor Upham and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 2008. To date, I have performed approximately 1,000 cardiac surgeries, of which hundreds involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at hospitals including WakeMed Raleigh Campus and WakeMed Cary Hospital. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my compassionate, driven, and exceptional training. I utilize cutting-edge skills to provide the best possible treatment to my patients. Strong communication with my patients is an essential piece of my cardiothoracic surgery practice. When faced with a need for surgery, I take the time to help patients and their families understand their options. I seek input from patients and their families and from medical consultants for a multidisciplinary approach to make the right decision for the right treatment at the right time.
I specialize in minimally invasive cardiothoracic surgery, on and off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery, valve repair and replacement surgery, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and thoracic surgery for benign and malignant diseases of the lung, esophagus and chest. I have presented internationally on minimally invasive thoracic surgery techniques. At WakeMed, I have all the tools at the forefront of treating cardiovascular and thoracic disease — a progressive staff, modern facilities, the latest technologies, and cutting-edge techniques. As a result, we offer patients the most advanced treatments available.
2 Patient Reviews for
"I couldn’t have found a better or more personal surgeon. He answered all questions and elevated my fears. I trusted him from my first appointment. "
-- Jayne Sanderson , Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 09/10/2022
"I had a mitral valve repair with Dr. Upham. I could not have asked for a more caring and professional team to lead me through this experience. My surgery was a success from beginning to end. Dr. Upham took the time to explain every aspect of my surgery in depth with me before hand. He even sent me for a heart cath to make sure I had no blockages, which let me know he was very concerned with my health and well-being, not just a quick in-and-out. If I had to have the surgery again, he certainly will be my first choice."
