DR. JIMMY HOWELL ~ A HOUSTON LEGEND! 

This is the man who saved my life seven years ago.  When he walked into the room the first time that I met him, he simply said, "Darlin, I'm gonna have to operate ya!"  It was at that moment that I knew this was a very special man.  With cowboy boots peeking out from under his scrubs, his down to earth personality resonated within me.  I knew that I was in good hands.

Dr. Jimmy Howell

As things go in life, I once again turn to this legend of a doctor to take care of me.  Seeing him this week made me realize how blessed I am to have a doctor of his caliber right here in Houston, Texas.  Let me share with you some incredible things about Dr. Jimmy Howell!

  • Dr. Howell has been on the Baylor College of Medicine faculty since 1964.  I was 4 years old then!
  • He is currently a Professor of Surgery in the Cardiothoracic Surgery Division of the Michael E. DeBakey Department.
  • Dr. Howell has performed surgery alongside Denton Cooley and Michael DeBakey who are considered to be legends in the field.
  • In 1992 Dr. howell was chosen by his peers as one of the top surgeons in America.
  • Dr. Howell is currently considered to be one of the top thoracic surgeons in the world.  People from all over come to see him.

Visiting his office is like a walk through LIFE Magazine.  There are many pictures of Dr. Cooley and Dr. DeBakey who have made history in the field of cardiac surgery.  Dr. Howell's nurse Lou, took me down the hall and gave me some insight to the many photos and memorabilia.

I am honored to know this man and that once again my life will be in his hands.  I wanted to write about Dr. Howell as I am sure that there are many of you out there who may not have ever heard of him before.  I hope that you too have a Dr. Howell in your life.  These men and women dedicate their lives to take care of us and I will always be forever grateful to my favorite doctor in the whole world.  Thanks Dr. Howell, I love you!

Looking at that picture of you both I would instinctively trust that man as well.  With that said I just want to remark that you don't mention why you will need this special doctors skills again.  I wish the best for you in whatever the situation is.

I had spent years in the operating room as a sugical tech and had great respect for Dr. DeBakey and  Dr. Howell certainly had a great mentor.  We'll be thinking of you.
