Cardiothoracic surgeon Neelan Doolabh, M.D., is one of an elite group of surgeons who performs valve repairs, valve replacements, and other heart procedures without cutting into any bone at all. His approach takes two hours and requires only one small incision, which in turn offers less risk of complications, a shorter hospital stay, and less postoperative recovery time.

Dr. Doolabh earned his medical degree at UT Southwestern, where he also completed a residency in surgery and a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery. He served in private practice in Tyler, Texas, until he joined the UT Southwestern staff in 2016.
