About Dr. Douglas Johnston, Heart Surgeon

Greetings! I'm Dr. Douglas Johnston, a cardiac surgeon with a degree from Harvard Medical School in 1998. Throughout my career, I have successfully completed around 4,000 cardiac surgeries, with a specialization in heart valve procedures, accounting for over 3,000 cases. My primary practice location is at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

What sets me apart as a surgeon is my unwavering dedication to achieving the best possible outcomes for my patients. I find profound satisfaction in the field of heart surgery because it allows me to make a significant impact on people's lives every single day. Each patient comes to me with unique needs and aspirations, and the reasons for undergoing heart surgery vary greatly. For some, it's about extending their time on this Earth to cherish moments with their grandchildren. Others hope to regain their active lifestyle, such as getting back on their mountain bike.

In summary, I'm deeply committed to my profession and take immense pride in contributing positively to the lives of my patients through cardiac surgery.
