Specialties

Dr. Benjamin B Peeler has the following 3 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Our Daughter's Surgery

Dr. Peeler is one of the best heart doctors in the country. When it comes to placing your trust in a doctor to perform surgery on the finest of hearts, he is the gentleman to do it. Hands down. Our daughter was born with Tetrology of Fallot and he was able to do the repair at six months. She is doing perfectly and we know when it is time for her to have her valve replaced, we know exactly who to see! Thank you Dr. Peeler, you saved our daughter!

Five Stars

Our three year old son was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Dr. Peeler performed the Norwood, Glenn, and Fontan procedures on our son. We cannot express how thankful we are for Dr. Peeler and his team at Levine Children's Hospital. We met Dr. Peeler when I was 18 weeks pregnant with our son and had just received the news of our son's condition. After meeting him and discussing with him the procedures, my husband and I felt confident that he was the surgeon for us. We were not wrong. Dr. Peeler was excellent and our son is doing well today because of him and his team! He is the best of the best!

Terrific Surgeon

Dr. Peeler did a terrific job of replacing my Pulmonary Valve. The operation was only 4 hours long, and I was only in the hospital for 4 days. You can't beat that! I'm 54 years old, which is much older than his normal patients. This was my 3rd open-heart surgery, with my previous one when I was 13 years old. His staff (at the Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute) as well as the people in the CMC-Charlotte Hospital were all great. My thanks again to each and every one of you!

Excellent Surgeon

I was very happy with Dr Benjamin Peeler and his Staff for performing surgery on my one year old son. After the surgery my son has recovered very well and thanks to God and Doctor that everything went very well. Dr Peeler and his staff are highly qualified professionals and they know very well what they are doing and doing surgeries in a highly stressful environment with precision and accuracy speaks about their experience and knowledge on the subject. They are the best. They did an excellent job. Thanks again.
