Dr. Kenneth Liao performs 300th robotic heart surgery

Kenneth Liao, MD, PhD, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Houston-based Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, performed his 300th robotic heart surgery in early March, the center said in an email to Becker's. 

Dr. Liao is the system's chief of the division of cardiothoracic transplantation and circulatory support. The cardiology team at the center is focused on using robotic technology to perform minimally invasive mitral valve repair and coronary artery bypass grafting surgeries. 

"Despite COVID challenges, our cutting-edge technology and excellent surgical outcomes have drawn patients and referring physicians from across the U.S. and abroad," Dr. Liao said in the release. "It's a humbling experience to see an increasing number of cardiologists outside St. Luke's health system referring their patients to us for robotic cardiac surgery for the benefits of their patients' well being."
