"Our group has a track record of developing talented faculty. Dr. Johnson, Carpenter, Calhoon and Miller all were products of our program. Over the past few years, several of the most respected educators and clinicians in general thoracic, adult cardiac and congenital heart surgery all spent formative time in San Antonio with our group. Although we always try to improve our talent base and expertise, when the best place for great faculty due to family or other opportunity is elsewhere, we have had a history of encouraging and helping those faculty move to great positions. Currently, we are recruiting outstanding physicians with expertise in adult cardiac, thoracic and congenital heart surgery. Our recruiting focus is to identify clinical and academic excellence and further groom already intrinsic leadership skills to ever raise our bar of clinical and academic excellence and mastery.”

"I have never had to have any type of surgery but I am glad I found Dr DeArmond. He seems to be very good and careful about his work and is very easy to get in to see. I will look to him if I ever need another surgery again."
