About me

Dr. Julie Doberne is a cardiothoracic surgeon who treats cardiac conditions including heart failure, coronary artery disease, valvular and aortic issues, pulmonary thrombosis, endocarditis, and many others. She performs complex procedures such as coronary artery bypass surgery, valve replacements, ventricular assist device implantation and heart transplantation.

Her primary objective is to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient. This starts with the patient-provider relationship and truly understanding her patients’ wishes and lifestyles to decide on the best clinical plan. Another vital component is technical excellence in surgery to ensure the smoothest intraoperative course. Recovery in the ICU and on the hospital ward is equally important, where high-functioning skilled provider teams work together. She feels that it is a privilege as a cardiac surgeon to interact with patients and colleagues in all these settings as a leader, team member, supporter and lifelong learner.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher.
