Hiep C Nguyen, MD

Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery
Born in Vietnam, Hiep C. Nguyen, MD, grew up in Houston, Texas. He knew at an early age that he wanted to be a surgeon after observing his father working with American surgeons in M.A.S.H. units. Dr. Nguyen obtained his MD degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston Texas. He then completed his general surgery residency at New York Medical College and his cardiothoracic surgery fellowship at New York University in New York City, New York. After his residency, Dr. Nguyen spent 20 years in Delaware before returning to Texas. Dr. Nguyen specializes in various procedures and techniques including minimally invasive valve repair and replacement, minimally invasive endograft vascular surgery, robotic CABG surgery, and aortic surgery.

“There is a mystique about the heart – it is the soul of the person,” he says “it is satisfying to see patients recover quickly and to see the results of surgery.”

Dr. Nguyen enjoys fishing, biking, and spending time at the beach with family. He decided to relocate to Florida to better take advantage of these activities.

Dr. Nguyen’s approach to patient care is “treating the patient as my own family, and as I would want to be treated."
