About Dr. Luis J. Castro, Heart Surgeon

Dr. Luis J. Castro is a cardiac surgeon in Emerald Hills, California, and is affiliated with Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital. He received his medical degree from Stanford University School of Medicine and has practiced for over 20 years. Dr. Luis Castro has expertise in treating Heart valve surgery and heart bypass surgery, among other conditions.

Dr. Luis Castro's significant area of expertise is in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). This minimally invasive surgical procedure is used to treat aortic stenosis, a condition where the aortic valve narrows, hindering blood flow from the heart. TAVR represents a significant advancement in cardiac surgery, offering an alternative for patients who are considered high-risk for traditional open-heart surgery.

Throughout my career, I have performed approximately 5,000 cardiac surgeries, with a specialized emphasis on heart valve procedures, comprising 3,000 of those surgeries. This exceptional track record can be attributed to the collective expertise and extensive experience of our team members. Our unwavering commitment to a single-center approach allows us to achieve the highest level of team excellence, ultimately resulting in world-class outcomes.
