He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, and the American College of Cardiology.

 As a highly-experienced cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Thourani specializes in the treatment of adult cardiac disease, such as valve disease, coronary artery disease, aortic aneurysm, and arrhythmia surgery. He is unique in that he is able to perform these procedures using traditional open surgical, minimally invasive, and transcatheter techniques.

“My highest priority is to provide personalized, exemplary care by giving patients options for new innovative technologies relevant to their diagnosis. My goal is to provide the most optimal patient care utilizing the most appropriate procedure in order to minimize recuperation time and, most importantly,   achieve long-lasting, quality results.

“The nature of valvular disease means that I have the privilege of building lifelong relationships with each patient. All patients referred to me, in addition to referring physicians, join our family of physicians, nurses, assistants, and advanced patient providers.”
