St. Dominic’s Cardiovascular Surgery Associates has expanded its network of providers to include David Theodoro, MD, MBA, a cardiac surgeon, focusing on structural heart disease and innovative valvular heart surgery. He will also work closely with oncologists and other cancer specialists at St. Dominic’s Cancer Center.
He received his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and obtained his medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine. He subsequently obtained a Master of Business Administration at Jack Welch Management Institute-Strayer University and completed his internship and residency from Barnes Hospital at Washington University and Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he received the Lenard Perloff Chief of Resident Teaching Award. Dr. Theodoro then completed his Cardiothoracic Surgery Fellowship at the Mayo Clinic where he received the top-ranking fellow traveling award.
As Dr. Theodoro’s passion for medicine continued, he and his team developed the largest minimally invasive cardiac valve program in the region which included the only intra-cardiac robotic platform in the state of Missouri. For the past 15 years Dr. Theodoro served as President and Chairman of the SSM Heart and Vascular Institute and the last six years as Chairman for the SSM sponsored Clinical Integrated Network (CIN). Dr. Theodoro is an established cardiac surgeon with an extensive surgical portfolio and over 23 years of clinical and leadership expertise.
"My fundamental guiding purpose is to ever serve our patients better,” said David Theodoro, MD, MBA.
