He and one of his partners, Dr. Mark Mostovych, created the first minimally invasive surgery program in Jacksonville to treat valvular heart disease, atrial fibrillation and lung cancer. Drs. Lee and Mostovych have subsequently trained many visiting heart surgeons from across the country in their techniques.
Dr Lee attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his undergraduate education and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Medical School in 1988. He completed his general surgery and cardiothoracic surgery residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital. He joined Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgical Associates in January 1998.
Dr. Lee practices a complete complement of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, which includes coronary revascularization, valve surgery, lung surgery, carotid surgery and endovascular aortic stenting. He has a special interest in valvular heart disease via a minimally invasive approach, and robotic lung surgery.
