An overview of the scope and natural history of aortic valvular stenosis, followed by the development of transcatheter valve devices, contemporary results, and new developments to transcatheter therapeutics including mitral and tricuspid valvular diseases.
A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Dr. Hebeler attended college and medical school at Tulane University in New Orleans. Despite this, he finished his General Surgery residency at UT Houston and completed his training in cardiothoracic surgery at Emory University in Atlanta. He has been in private practice since 1984 at Baylor University Medical Center and other metroplex hospitals. He has specialized in structural heart disease and was the first surgeon in Texas to use the DaVinci Robotic system to repair mitral valves and initiated surgical MAZE operation to ablate atrial fibrillation in Dallas. His focus on minimally invasive approaches and investigative trials helped to pioneer the first national trials of TAVR with the Medtronic CoreValve. This has led to participation in multiple clinical trials with 4 different devices as well as expansion into transcatheter mitral and tricuspid valve repair. In all this, he has been supported by his wife of 31 years, their 3 children-one a retired teacher/principal, one in nursing school, and the last one is in General Surgery residency-3 grandchildren, a dog, and various other livestock.
