Specialties

Dr. Joseph Teply has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Thoracic Surgery

    If you need surgery to treat a complication in your chest, which includes your lungs, esophagus, diaphragm and heart, your doctor will refer you to a thoracic surgeon. They’re trained to offer surgical treatment for tumors and abnormalities in these areas as well as respiratory and heart conditions like lung cancer, heart disease and diseases in the diaphragm.
    Thoracic surgeons are similar to heart surgeons, except they have additional training in the entire cardiorespiratory system and in how your blood vessels work with your lungs and airways. They’re also trained on catheters used in the chest, as well as cardiac and respiratory support systems that might be part of your treatment plan.

Ten Years Later

I received a 5-way by-pass from Dr. Teply in 2007 and could not be more pleased with the process and result. After ten years I have had no issues and am diagnosed as in perfect health by my GP. Jay Johnson, Sammamish, WA

To anyone who needs Dr. Tepley expertise I would say to you to look no further. Dr. Tepley truly cares about his patients and their family--he's a very kind man. He is professional and treats you as if you were his only patient. He carefully explains your diagnoses and treatment plan then listens and encourages questions. I had a bypass and aortic valve replacement done by Dr. Tepley in 2011.

I needed a quadruple bypass and Dr. Teply walked into my room,smiled and said he heard we needed a heart surgeon and would the next morning work out for us! He was so kind, so professional, so caring. And he saved my life eight years ago with his skilled surgery. I owe my life to him. Five stars.

Fine surgeon!

Following an abnormal angiogram my trusted cardiologist recommended Swedish and Dr. Tepley for my cardiac bypass surgery. Upon meeting Dr. Teply I was calmed and filled with confidence that this experienced surgeon was going to bring all his skills and utilize all the facility's resources for my procedure. My initial impression proved to be accurate. I have been amazed at how quickly I have recovered and have done so with a minimum of pain. I attribute this to Dr. Teply's considerable surgical abilities. He also took the time, and interest, to let me know both before and after what he was doing and how things had gone. There is no doubt in my mind that this man has added many years to my life and that is obviously an incomparable gift.
