Get To Know Our Talented Team

Baptist Health South Florida introduces and impressive new team of expert heart and chest surgeons in the new advertisement currently running in both the English and Spanish editions of the Miami Herald. Get to know our talented team:

  • Niberto L. Moreno, M.D., is Baptist Health’s Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery. Dr. Moreno has been affiliated with Baptist Health since 1995. He was an early innovator in minimally invasive surgery, and performed the first beating heart surgery in 1994.
  • Lynn H. Harrison Jr., M.D., joins Baptist Health from the University of Massachusetts, where he was chief of cardiac surgery. He is credited with leading the transformation of the university’s heart surgery program into one of the top 100 programs in the United States.
  • Lynn Seto, M.D., from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, is a specialist in the area of robotic and minimally invasive cardiac surgery, particularly mitral valve repair. At Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Seto performed 400 heart surgeries without a single fatality. She teaches other surgeons the technique using the da Vinci robot.
  • Mark Dylewski, M.D., is considered one of the country’s cutting-edge surgeons in the area of robotic techniques, particularly minimally invasive lung surgery. He developed the Dylewski technique using the da Vinci robot to remove the lung without cutting or spreading the ribs—a technique other robotic physicians are now adopting.
  • Lisardo Garcia-Covarrubias, M.D., joins the cardiac and thoracic surgical group after extensive postgraduate training. He completed two heart transplant fellowships, one at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the other at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Hospital.
