Scott Reznik, M.D., is a cardiothoracic surgeon at Children’s Health℠ who specializes in minimally invasive surgery.

After receiving his undergraduate degree in chemistry at Duke University, Dr. Reznik earned his medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine. He completed a residency in general surgery at Washington University/Barnes-Jewish Hospital, as well as a postdoctoral research fellowship in lung transplant immunology. He then received advanced training in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Reznik’s clinical research interests include lung cancer, esophageal cancer and minimally invasive surgical approaches for both. He has a special interest in patient safety and quality care. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery. He is a member of the General Thoracic Surgical Club, the American College of Surgeons, the Association for Academic Surgery and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.

Dr. Reznik has honed his minimally invasive surgery skills with the goal of helping patients recover faster and return to their lives more quickly. 

“Today’s minimally invasive technology allows us to do surgeries that are equivalent – and in some cases, superior – to open-incision surgeries,” he says. “When appropriate for the patient’s needs, it’s a great option. It’s always about what’s best for the patient.”
