Dr. Douglas A Murphy has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
- 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.

Wanted to jump in here and say Dr Murphy performed robotic mitral valve repair on me in July, 2015 and he was well worth the drive down from Asheville, NC! Perfect results! No more shortness of breath nor dizziness. Bedside manner was perfect! Ditto on all other reviews! Was mowing my yard 2 weeks after the surgery. Literally! Ask someone that has had this procedure performed open heart how long they think it would have taken to mow their yard post op! Only complication was my fault. Didn't walk enough post op in the hospital and developed some blood clots in the lower part of my right lung. Now its a year and a half post op and I'm like new! This Dr is the benchmark for outstanding practice and performance. Don't wait until he retires to wish you would have gotten what you need done. He's the best by far!
Dr. Murphy and his staff essentially saved my life by performing a mitral valve repair, robotically of course. The caring professionalism on all levels shown by Dr. Murphy and all his employees was beyond expectation...simply amazing. One year later...I am as good as new, heart-wise, and have been this way just a few weeks after the operation. Going into the operation, I was calm, and even excited to proceed since my confidence level of the outcome was sky high...and there was no disappointment. Dr. Murphy and his staff are an incredible blessing to all who receive their care.
You were a miracle for my daughter when you said that you could remove her tumor with robotics. It saved her so much pain. She has muscular dystrophy and I am sure this type of surgery was a life saver for her. We will always remember you and how grateful we were that 6 years ago you did a great job with her surgery using the robotics.
