    A passion for caring for others took Mark Pool, M.D., from chemical engineering to health care. He earned his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, then completed his general surgery residency at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and cardiac surgery fellowship at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. He is board-certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery.

    Pool’s areas of focus include coronary revascularization (bypass surgery), mitral and aortic valve repair and replacement, and robotic lung operations. He performs some of the most complicated and high-risk heart operations in North Texas, including redo operations and multi-valve surgery. He also performs minimally-invasive surgery. Pool is part of the Texas Health Dallas team performing TAVI, an emerging technology that allows a new aortic valve to be put in without an open incision.

    Pool has been named a Super Doctor and Rising Star multiple times by Texas Monthly. He has also been listed as a Best Doctor of Cardiothoracic Surgery in D Magazine for several years. He has privileges at Texas Health Dallas and Texas Health Plano.

    He is known for his laid-back style of communicating, and patients often comment about his ability to explain complex aspects of surgery in a way that is easy to understand.

    Pool is married to his lovely wife, Jessica, and has eight children. He is active in his church and can often be spotted praying with his patients.
