Thursday, October 27, 2016 - Campus News -

Lacy E. Harville, III, M.D., a cardiovascular surgeon, has established his surgical practice with OU Physicians. He has also been named an assistant professor of surgery for the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.

Harville is board certified in surgery and thoracic and cardiovascular surgery. He comes to OU Physicians from Knoxville, Tennessee, where he was in private practice as a thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon for 24 years. At OU Physicians, he will perform all adult cardiac surgeries, including coronary bypass graphting, valve surgeries and complex aortic surgeries. 

Harville completed a thoracic and cardiovascular surgery residency and a general surgery residency, serving as chief general surgery resident, at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio. He earned his medical degree at the University of Tennessee, Memphis. 

Harville is a member of the American College of Surgeons, Society of Thoracic Surgeons, Southern Thoracic Surgery Association and Society of Critical Care Medicine. 

With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
