South Texas Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgical Associates, PLLC (STCVSA) was formed in September, 1997. The resulting group was formed from several prominent cardiothoracic surgery groups and individual surgeons. The resulting entity currently contains six cardiothoracic surgeons, and is widely recognized as the premier cardiothoracic and vascular surgery group in San Antonio and the surrounding South Texas area.

Our surgeons operate throughout the city of San Antonio, and form the largest private practice group of cardiothoracic surgeons in the city. STCVSA has its own scheduling and business office functions and staff. The group also employs highly qualified Physician Assistants who assist the surgeons in the operating room and in providing patient care in the office and hospitals.

STCVSA surgeons enjoy an excellent reputation for high quality, leading edge cardiothoracic surgery, and are committed to bringing the most current, highest quality services to our patients.


STCVSA is committed to its corporate mission of “enhancing overall cardiac and vascular health ” by providing high quality, patient-centered health care, surgical services and management support throughout San Antonio and the South Texas region of the United States. Individually the surgeons in our group have served the city of San Antonio and South Texas region for over 30 years and as a group since 1997.
