Edward E Horvath, DO

General Surgery
He calls it “singleness of purpose”: General Surgeon Eric Horvath, DO, FACS knows what he was meant to do. “I’m constantly bombarded by phone calls—day and night, but when I get into the operating room and hand off my phone, I get to just focus on what I love to do,” says Dr. Horvath. Equally passionate about his time in the clinic meeting new patients, Dr. Horvath enjoys the human interaction—frequently sharing stories about his children (whom he affectionately refers to as his “knuckleheads”), learning about his patients’ lives and remembering their stories. After graduating from Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, Dr. Horvath enlisted in the military and completed a degree in osteopathic medicine at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After his internship, he served as a battalion surgeon in Korea. He completed his residency in general surgery and two fellowships—in surgical critical care and burn—at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. Following his training, he served with the Army Burn SMART flight team USAISR, including two terms as the assistant clinical director of the unit--one of his proudest accomplishments. Having attained the rank of major, Dr. Horvath left the military in 2007 and joined Baptist Health System where he performed general and trauma surgery for 10 years. Now with Alamo City Surgeons and practicing out of their Live Oak office, Dr. Horvath will perform general, robotic and critical care surgery at Northeast Methodist Hospital. Dr. Horvath is board certified in general surgery and surgical critical care. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of Texas Medical Association and Bexar County Medical Society.
Care Philosophy

General Surgeon Edward Eric Horvath, DO, FACS likes to use humor and stories to get to know his patients. He wants them to feel that when they come to see him he’s not just a doctor. That way, on the day of their surgery, they’re not fearful. He also likes to draw pictures and make sure his patients are confident that they know exactly what he’s going to do, why he’s going to do it, and that they’re going to do great.
