Specialties

Dr. Emmett D Mckenzie 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.

Dr Mckenzie is an amazing heart surgeon

My child is living proof, he is no longer with Texas Childrens Hospital here in Houston, which makes my Heart ache. He performed all 4 open heart surgeries and also an pseudo aneurysm repair on our precious child Averi and she is thriving, however, she still is facing the Fontan surgery in the near future. I cannot imagine anyone else doing the surgery, he called her the baby with the complicated heart, she just turned 4 years old on August 19, 2017. God Bless you, Dr. McKenzie and the Good Lord above.

He dismissed my concerns and when was given information from other doctors, ignored it. He did not help me with anything and ignored information from other hospitals, such as Boston Children's Hospital. He does not care about the well being of the patient, refusing to do another echo before the planned surgery, dismissing it even though the cardiologist said they misdiagnosed me.
