Specialties

Dr. Robert A Guyton has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

No one I would trust more than Dr. Guyton

Dr. Guyton saved my life. I was in severe cardiac infarction upon arrival at Emory via EMT transport. Within minutes I was under their scrutiny and prepped for an angiogram proving total blockage. The evening of my admission, Dr. Guyton checked in on me, accepted my case and recommended CABG times five. Next day I was operated on successfully. I am grateful eternally to Dr. Guyton for my new lease on life and recommend him without reservation. The post operative staff was incomparable as well.

Dr. Guyton did a great job of describing my problem (ascending aortic aneurysm with bicuspid valve). He was concise, but answered all questions. I had no problems with the surgery and have been very healthy for the 2 yrs following. His staff was great - knowledgeable, but very understanding. They went out of their way to make me comfortable. I never had to wait long to see him, and everyone in his office was personble and caring.
