Dr. Didier F. Loulmet is a cardiac surgeon at NYU Langone Medical Center. Noted as one of "The 100 Top Minimally Invasive Surgeons" by New York Magazine, Dr. Loulmet has been consistently recognized as one of "The Best Doctors in New York" as well as one of "America's Top Doctors" by Castle Connolly Guide for the last twelve years. Dr. Loulmet's surgical interests include heart valve surgery, aortic surgery and coronary revascularization. He specializes mitral valve repair using endoscopic robotic techniques. He is a pioneer in robotic cardiac surgery, performing the world's first robotic mitral valve repair with Pr. Alain Carpentier in May 1998, the first endoscopic robotic coronary artery bypass grafting in June 1998 as well as the world's first endoscopic robotic pulmonary vein ablation in 2002. Dr. Loulmet received his medical degree from Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse, France. He completed his general surgery residency and cardiothoracic fellowship at the University of Paris under the direction of Pr. Alain Carpentier, the inventor of the heart valve repair techniques. Dr. Loulmet completed an additional adult and pediatric cardiac surgery fellowship at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Children's Hospital in Boston. Dr. Loulmet is a member of many national and international professional societies, including The Society of Thoracic Surgeons, the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery as well as the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery.
