Specialties

Dr. W Chitwood Jr 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.

Dr. Chitwood and ECU's Heart Clinic are top of their class

My aortic stenosis went rapidly from mild to severe. My local cardiologist referred me to the best surgeon he knew--Dr. Chitwood. Surgery and recovery went exactly as predicted and I felt I was in the best hands possible with the surgeon, his clinic and hospital. He literally saved my life.

Outstanding professional for my mitral valve repair

Dr. Chitwood's vast experience in robotically assisted mitral valve repair convinced me even before I got the appointment. Everything went so smoothly. The surgery went extremely well, and my recovery is nearly complete. Dr. Chitwood's advice was correct, his bedside manner just what I needed, and his surgical skill is fantastic. Followup visit was terrific. The ECHI is an incredible institution. The facilities are world class, as is the staff at all levels. Dr. Chitwood is director - and deservably gets the credit for the whole experience that I received. I am very blessed to have a new lease on life as a healthy, active 54 year old. I am not 8 weeks out of surgery, but I can already swim 1000 yards, bike 22 miles and jog 4 miles (on separate days). In a few months, I'll be doing triathlons again - thanks to Dr. Chitwood!
