Dr. Philip W. Carrott as an assistant professor of surgery in the Divisions of General Thoracic Surgery and Cardiothoracic Transplantation & Circulatory Support. He is board-certified in General Surgery and Thoracic Surgery.
A native of Kansas City, Dr. Carrott completed his undergraduate education at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. He then earned his medical degree at the University of Kansas, and went on to complete his general surgery training at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Dr. Carrott then did a research fellowship in esophageal disease at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, before completing his training with a fellowship in thoracic surgery at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. In 2013, Dr. Carrott joined the faculty at the University of Michigan as an assistant professor, and now joins us here at Baylor College of Medicine.
Dr. Carrott specializes in thoracic surgery and lung transplantation and treats benign and malignant disorders of the lung, esophagus, and chest wall. He uses minimally invasive techniques (video-assisted thoracic surgery or VATS, and laparoscopic abdominal surgery) whenever possible to treat lung cancer, thymic tumors, esophageal cancer, paraesophageal or hiatal hernias, achalasia, diaphragm paralysis and congenital diaphragm hernias, pectus excavatum deformities, and rib tumors. Dr. Carrott also has extensive experience with recurrent or re-operative hiatal hernias and lung surgery. His research interests include peri-operative nutrition support, enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS), and ischemic pre-conditioning of the stomach prior to esophagectomy.
Dr. Carrott has been involved in resident and medical student teaching, and he developed a curriculum for nutrition and cardiothoracic surgery for students at the University of Michigan. He was the Chair of the Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) for the Thoracic Surgery Residency and Fellowship at the University of Michigan, and has received training from the ACGME in trainee assessment.
Dr. Carrott is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society and has been awarded for leadership in medical school and residency.
