From Heart Surgeon To Podcast Powerhouse: Saving Lives With Dr. Philip Ovadia Of Stay Off My Operating Table

I have Dr. Philip Ovadia, and he has blown me away with how he integrates his book, podcast, and passion for the health and wellness space together in his show. His show is called Stay Off My Operating Table. After conducting over 3,000 heart surgeries, Dr. Philip Ovadia thought that good health comes from lifestyle nutrition, not just from surgery. Sadly, many of his patients consider their heart attacks inevitable. He’s now on a mission to help people stay off his operating table by giving them the tools and the mindset to never need him, never need a heart surgeon.

In 2015, Dr. Ovadia adopted a low-carb way of eating and has effortlessly maintained a weight loss of nearly 100 pounds ever since. He has extensively researched the health benefits of low-carb diets and a focus on heart health and learned that our poor diets cause poor metabolic health. His recent book, Stay Off My Operating Table, shares the lifestyle principles to prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. He also hosts the Stay Off My Operating Table podcast and is a frequent guest on other podcasts focusing on metabolic and heart health.

I was glad to have him here. When he reached out to me, it was shortly after we had a heart health scare in my family with my mom and it shook me. I was sitting back looking, “What can I do? Where can I get some advice? Where can I figure out what she should be doing? How can I support her? What I could be cooking?” I started doing what I usually do. Go to Amazon, download some books, and go to podcasts and start finding what’s out there.

At the moment that I was out there searching, Dr. Ovadia came straight to me and asked to be on my show. It took me a while to get him on the show here, but I’m glad to finally get him on so that I could ask him some questions and I could talk to him about what I was finding and what I was seeing out there. Here’s the other part about it. When you hear someone who’s got such passion who’s way past 100 episodes. He has 132 by the time we’re recording this, we get to this stage where we can build trust in what he’s saying. He believes what he’s saying.

He believes the experts that he’s coming on. That is a trust point for information that we desperately need in the health and wellness space. It is hard to maintain fake information if you don’t believe in what you’re doing and if you are not constantly correcting yourself. I’m going to ask him about some of those things. I’m going to ask him about how he vets his guests, and how he thinks about this because that health and wellness space has a lot of fly-night. Dr. Philip Ovadia is not one of them. I’m glad that he came on my show. I’m glad that you’re here to listen to my interview with Dr. Philip Ovadia, Stay Off My Operating Table.

About Stay Off My Operating Table Host Dr. Philip Ovadia

The Binge Factor | Dr. Philip Ovadia | Heart Surgeon PodcastConducting over 3,000 heart surgeries taught Dr. Philip Ovadia that good health comes from lifestyle and nutrition, not from surgery. Sadly, many of his patients considered their heart attacks “inevitable.” He is now on a mission to help people stay off his operating table by giving them the tools and mindset to never need a heart surgeon.

But for as long as he can remember, he was overweight: as a child, teen, and even as a cardiac surgeon. This was despite growing up as an active child in a household that followed USDA guidelines and the Food Pyramid, buying margarine, diet soda, low-fat milk, and avoiding sugary cereals. Like many people, his weight was a constant battle, and food was on his mind from the moment he woke up until he went to sleep.

In 2015, Dr Ovadia adopted a low-carb way of eating, and has effortlessly maintained a weight loss of nearly 100 pounds ever since. Since 2019, he has mostly followed a carnivorous diet. He has extensively researched the health benefits of low-carb diets with a focus on heart health, and learned that our poor diets cause poor metabolic health — a third of US adults have metabolic syndrome and heart disease is responsible for 1 in every 4 deaths. Worse, our healthcare environment is overly focused on prescribing medications and treating the symptoms of a condition instead of addressing the root cause.

Dr Ovadia’s recent book, Stay Off My Operating Table, shares the lifestyle principles to prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. He also hosts the Stay Off My Operating Table Podcast, is a frequent guest on other podcasts focused on metabolic and heart health, and has delivered lectures at conferences focused on metabolic health.

In 2020, he established Ovadia Cardiothoracic Surgery and now works as an independent contractor Cardiothoracic Surgeon in various locations throughout the United States. He has also established Ovadia Heart Health, a Telehealth practice that focuses on the prevention and treatment of metabolic and heart disease utilizing lifestyle and dietary modification. He incorporates his hands-on, clinical experience with heart disease and the personal insights he has gained in his own struggle with obesity and poor metabolic health.

Dr. Ovadia graduated from the accelerated Pre-Med/Med program at the Pennsylvania State University and Jefferson Medical College (now Sidney Kimmel School of Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University) before completing a Residency in General Surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and a Fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery at Tufts-New England Medical School. He is board certified in Cardiothoracic Surgery and General Surgery, is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and is a founding member of the Society of Metabolic Health Practitioners.

Stay Off My Operating Table

Dr. Ovadia thank you for coming on. I don’t usually recommend long titles, but Stay Off My Operating Table is perfect. It’s like three big important words and a couple of small ones mixed in there. I love the title. Was it your first title?

Thank you. Yeah, it was my first title for the podcast. It comes from the title of my book, Stay Off My Operating Table. We continued that when we launched the podcast subsequent to the book release. Developing that as the title of the book was a bit of a process, but it pretty effectively gets the message across about what we’re trying to accomplish.

I want everybody to take a look at it, he has the brand I Fix Hearts, which came from, we were talking about before, from your Twitter handle, but it is brilliant because it Stay Off My Operating Table and I Fix Hearts. They’re not the same brand, but they have the same message.

They play into each other and, it was a bit of luck. I got that Twitter handle way before I had any thoughts of launching this brand and being on this mission. Quite honestly, I was on a much different pathway at the time. I was a heart surgeon and I fixed hearts. It is pretty effective, and pretty much says the message. Occasionally, it gets me confused with a dating service or something like that, but for the most part, I think people guess off of it, heart surgery, heart care, or cardiology and then Stay Off My Operating Table has become the mantra over the past few years as I have shifted my focus from being a heart surgeon and helping people with that need to trying to keep people off the operating table and prevent the need for heart surgery.

We had an incident with my mom in 2023, and it shook us all and shocked us. She went in for a little shortness of breath and the next thing you know she was having angiograms, angioplasty, and everything was happening and it happened quickly. I don’t think anyone even realized it. She is coming off of that, realizing that her diet had to change, there are so many of your lifestyles that have to change that it is a much broader subject what a shame that most doctors don’t get to reach beyond their operating table when they do.


The Binge Factor | Dr. Philip Ovadia | Heart Surgeon Podcast


Most people recognize that heart disease is the number one killer in the United States. Although interestingly there was a study that came out a little bit ago that suggested that less than half of the people in the United States when asked what the number one killer is, got that answer correct.

You’d think we’d know by now, but we don’t.

Either way, what I have come to realize in my many years as a heart surgeon now is we do a great job at taking care of people when they get sick. We do a lousy job of preventing them from getting sick in the first place. The reality about heart disease is that it is largely preventable and probably 90%, if not more of heart disease deaths could be prevented way before people get to the operating table or end up in a cath lab. For a lot of people, their first indication that they have heart disease is like your mother, when they get sick or when they have a heart attack. What I am trying to get the message out about is that we can figure out that people are at risk much sooner and we can intervene with things like changes in diet and lifestyle and do a much more effective job at preventing them from getting to the advanced stages of the disease.

Starting A Medical Podcast

How did this translate? I’ve met a lot of doctors over the years through my through my company here and podcasting and they’re not always great behind the mic. How did you make that transition and say, “I want to talk more about this.”

That’s been a process. We don’t learn this in medical school. One would think, “You’re a doctor. You talk to people all day long and you’re interacting with people,” and that’s true. As you know, the skills of being on camera and podcasting are a lot different than having a one-on-one conversation with the patient at the bedside. A lot of it does translate, is what I’ve come to realize. A lot of it doesn’t. When I first started podcasting, I had the idea to add a podcast to what we were doing. Quite frankly, my first attempts at it and my first vision was it would be a solo podcast where I’d talk about the stuff that I talk about. It didn’t go very well.

It feels a little like giving lectures at that early stage, and that doesn’t feel as good.

It was painful both for me and for anyone who had to listen to that. Thankfully I was connected with Jack Heald, who is my co-host and producer the original vision was he was going to produce the show for me and I would do the show. He said, “How about we do it together?” Our first 20 episodes or so is Jack interviewing me. As I became more comfortable on camera, we then decided to start bringing on guests. We kept the co-host arrangement with Jack and me because it’s a very interesting perspective. Jack is non-medical.

He brings the common man’s perspective and most of the guests that we have are medical, practitioners or scientists. The conversation that I might have with them, practitioner to practitioner, is very different than the conversation that Jack would have with them. We get a good mix of both. That has worked out very well many of the guests have commented how much they enjoy coming on our podcast and how they get different questions and a lot of the other healthcare-focused podcasts that are out there.

I do think that that’s quite unique about your show. I’ve seen other shows that are like that where there’s one more expert and one of the co-hosts is a little more user or listener-focused. You’re being advocating for it, “The listener didn’t understand that. Can you explain that?” That’s a good way, especially in such a deep important subject to say, “Time out. I’m not sure I understood that,” and dive deeper into those things. I think you’ve done a wonderful job with the two of you there.

The other thing I thought about when I was listening to the fact that you had Jack on the show and he’s your producer along with everything is that this is a great way to be much more accountable for showing up and keeping your podcast going because I know you busy professionals, especially your doctors out there, you get too busy to keep podcasting. It’s the professional-focused podcasts are the ones that I see paid first.

It’s very true and quite challenging. I enjoy it so much that I do now prioritize it. I make sure that that’s protected time that we’re going to get the podcast done. Sometimes there is some schedule shuffling. I am still an active heart surgeon and things happen unexpectedly, but we work around that and we’re now 150 episodes in over a few years. We do have good consistency. We make sure we get our episode out every week and we’ve now set up things that we have some buffer and we’re a couple of weeks in advance recording. That’s been going well.

If you had asked me at the beginning whether I thought we would still be doing this two years later, the honest answer would’ve been no. I do now really truly enjoy it. It allows me to have such great conversations with people that I’m interested in having conversations with. Most of the guests are people that I want to talk to. It has become an enjoyable part of my very busy professional life, but we prioritize it so it happens.

I’m going to say I usually do my psychoanalysis of your show and analyze the binge factor. Right there you hit on what it is. I can hear in your show how passionate you are about the guests that you’re bringing on and want to have time to have a conversation with them. Often when I see a cohost situation, especially when they’re a producer, they step in and they have lined up the guests and they do all the prep and announcements, but 9 times out of 10 from the episodes I listened to, Jack is like, “Who you got for us today?”

You got that all handled as to why you wanted them on the show and what you’re going to dive into in the conversation. Your participation in that is truly why I think someone’s going to binge on your entire show catalog and they’re going to go back to the beginning and listen to all of them because they really want to gain that perspective that you have on who you’re interested in talking to is who they want to hear from.

Thank you for that. It may be even more true for Jack. Jack is oftentimes excited by the end of the episode. It seems like almost every episode these days, Jack is like, “That was our best one ever.” I always laugh to myself and I’m like, “I think you said that each of the last ten episodes,” but it is true. It gets better with time, with the guests continuing to grow and get more interesting. We’re now getting to that point where we’re starting to circle back with some of our previous guests, which is another interesting and great experience because you then get to go deeper and think about what you discussed the first time and now what you’re going to explore the second time. Something that I’m very excited about is to have repeat conversations with some interesting people.

Handling Challenging Conversations

That’s great because then it allows someone to say, “As a listener, that’s the second time this person’s been on. Maybe I really do need to read their book.” It helps make those connections deeper. I think that this is a difficult area for especially doctors, but lawyers as well. Anyone who’s got some professional certification of any kind where they feel a little uncomfortable with a guest model because what is that guest going to say and is that okay and valid advice? How do you handle that when they say something that you are not a firm believer in?

We have some challenging conversations sometimes, and there are certainly times when the guests and I might disagree on some aspects of things. I always try and handle that respectfully. One of the things that I think have recognized in medicine, and honestly this has become magnified in the most recent years, is that we are less open to those conversations. The reality is that science and medicine advance by challenging the norms. I think that’s an essential thing that we in healthcare need to support.

There needs to be debate about some of these things. There is a lot that we don’t know. There is a lot that we thought we knew in the past that proves not to be true there are many historical examples of this. For us to look at any one particular topic today and say, “We know this for sure,” is anti-science, quite frankly, and anti-medicine and not benefiting the patient ultimately. I always encourage those conversations. We’ve had guests that I may not align with fully, and that’s okay. I’ve certainly been guest on other podcasts in a similar situation. The way that I view it is if you can’t handle challenges to your point of view, then you shouldn’t be out there talking about it.

That’s a great benefit. It opens up your own personal practice and your own mindset about, “Why aren’t my patients complying with this? Why are all these experts gurus puffing up in social media and other places?” It’s because something’s not working. Maybe through those conversations, you start to see, “What if I did this differently in my practice? What if I added these resources?”

There were many examples of that that I can point to that we’ve had a guest coming on that honestly I maybe I’m a little unsure of, “Is this something really we should be talking about?” We end up having very interesting conversations that oftentimes open and expand my horizons, and can translate into perhaps new ways of me doing things in practice, certainly, the audience is learning alongside me. I always welcome that opportunity on the podcast. I do think that we try and at least give a chance for people to speak their minds and their view of things and see how it aligns or doesn’t align.

It doesn’t sometimes. I think that there are a lot of people who might be out there saying, “I don’t have the business that I need to be a podcast host. I need to be out in front of a camera or a microphone. I don’t need that because my patients are going to get on my operating table no matter what.” There’s a steady flow, unfortunately. You decided not to look at it that way. You’ve decided to be an author, a podcaster, and to participate in that. What part of your business did you see as expanding for you? Did you see it as essential for your future?

Take Control Of Your Health

My story arc goes from an unhealthy heart surgeon who did things to improve my own health and realized that that could be helping my patients. I came to this realization that most of the people who ended up on my operating table didn’t need to be there. The healthcare system failed those people for the most part. That led me on this mission to educate people as to how they can take control of their health and how they could stay off my operating table or any operating table. I did recognize that that was a very different approach than being a heart surgeon at a hospital where people show up at your door. You don’t really need to do a whole lot of promotion and advertising for that. This is a message that needs to get out there, it needs to be promoted.

Most of the people who end up on the operating table really didn't need to be there. The healthcare system failed those people for the most part. Share on X

I recognized early on that it was going to take a different approach. We discussed about a little earlier, that was something that I wasn’t necessarily comfortable with. I didn’t really know how to do it quite honestly, but I was fortunate to have some good contacts in my life who were able to help me with that and aligned with some business and marketing people.

Jack is a marketer as well as the producer of my podcast. People like that have been able to help me along then the book turned into the podcast and supports our telemedicine practice that I run where I work with patients one-on-one, work with patients throughout the US and even internationally, and helping them to stay off the operating table, trying to prevent their heart disease from worsening or prevent heart disease in the first place.

There’s a lot that goes into that as well. We have courses, books, coaching, and all the different ways that we work with people. The podcast and book help to support that. That’s oftentimes the entry point for people into our ecosystem and really into this topic at large. The topic of what we eat and how it affects our health is something that I don’t think people pay enough attention to. That sounds funny because you say, “We eat all the time every day of our life.” Healthcare is all around us. It’s essentially the biggest industry in this country. How do the two not intersect more? The reality is that they don’t as much as they should, trying to get people to understand that the relationship between what we eat and our healthcare is really the mission that we’re on.

Once you open their eyes to the things that happened with my mom right before Thanksgiving, she’s got this menu for Thanksgiving and I said, “We can’t make these things. There’s too much salt in them. There’s too much butter and these things in them. You just had surgery. We’re not doing that anymore. We need to change what we’re doing.” She was like, “I didn’t even think about that it has these things in it,” because it starts to be a habit.

The ironic part of this is that the message that I’m out here giving about what we eat is very counter to the standard message. I would tell you that the butter and the salt were maybe some of the healthiest parts of that.

I did my research. This was what was on this list that they gave us from the hospital, “Don’t eat this and that.” There was all this stuff on the list. As I went to do research, figure out recipes, and find new things, I was finding the opposite. It made me wonder, “Who do I trust? Where do I go?” I wish I had known you back. It would’ve made Thanksgiving a lot easier if I had met you.

We have plenty of time to work on this upcoming Thanksgiving. That’s another challenge that we face another reason that I wanted to get the podcast out there and connect with more of an audience is because there are very diametrically opposed opinions about what we should be eating. Once we acknowledge that what we eat affects our health, that’s the first challenge because many doctors, and much of the healthcare system will say, “No, it doesn’t matter what you eat, it’s your genetics, it’s something else.” Once we get people to accept, okay, what you eat is a primary determinant of your health, we then have the challenging question of, “What do you eat?” There are all sorts of camps. What I tried to do in the book and the podcast is boil it down.

What you eat is a primary determinant of your health. Share on X

What I did was I looked at all of these different successful strategies that ultimately lead people to better health and help prevent heart disease. I tried to find the common factor. For me, the common factor really appears to be, “Eat real food,” and that’s the message. There’s meat and plants or vegetables within the real food categories. Honestly, there’s a lot of debate there. You can be vegan or carnivore. There are many things in between that you can do as you’re eating real food.

I think all of those people are going to benefit. I think there are certain situations that may favor one versus the other. I’ve had a conversation with vegan doctors. I am a strong proponent of the carnivore diet. In the end, we recognize that we agree on more than we disagree on eating real food becomes a big part of it, empowering people with that information, allowing them to take back control of their health and recognize that they can have a major impact on their health by changing what they eat. You don’t have to be dependent on the pharmaceutical company and the healthcare system to manage your sickness anymore. Let’s empower you to be healthy and to take back control of your health.

That’s critically important. I do think that conversations and those interviews that you’re having, I think that’s one of the things, my takeaways from listening to the conversation going is that it’s bringing this slightly different perspective. I have had egg allergy since I was a child. Eggs are not a great option for me on any diet, even though they’re wonderful as a protein. It’s not a good idea for me. How do I adapt? What do I do? It has to be personal, but if we feel like everybody’s diametrically posed, then it feels like, “I should do nothing.” That’s not a good way to go about it.

We do have to recognize that we are all individuals. That’s why I say there is no one right diet for everyone. Just because I personally do a carnivore diet, that doesn’t mean that I tell all my patients that you have to do a carnivore diet. We figure out what is the right situation for your scenario. There are many individualized factors that go into this. That’s why in practice we take the approach that we take. I’m not out here putting everyone on the cookie-cutter program. We do work individually, me and my team work individually with each of those patients to figure out and adapt it to what works for you. It gets even more complex because what might be the right approach for you today may change over time as well.

That’s very true with a lot of us women who might be having some hormonal shifts at some point.

The hormonal issues and general health. When you come to me sick to start with, and you might be diabetic or pre-diabetic, that’s going to lead you down one route of how to reverse that. Once we reverse that and get you out of that condition, that might change your options as to what’s going to be the best strategy for you. It becomes interesting talking about this on a show because you do have to balance that.

It’s very generalized in that way.

You’re talking to an audience and you don’t personally know the people in the audience for the most part. You have to at the same time give a generalized message that also allows individuals to figure out what their approach might be.

What their takeaway should be. The telehealth, was that always planned into your business or did that come out of the pandemic and then come out of having the podcast?

No, that was an intentional choice that I made to be telehealth only for various reasons. It was around the time of COVID. I launched the practice in April of 2020, coincidentally. That was beneficial because telehealth became well-accepted and widely utilized. It allowed me to do some things that may not have been possible even a year or two prior to that. We’ve now kept it telehealth because it works well for what we’re doing. I have a team that’s scattered across the country. I have two health coaches, myself, a nurse practitioner now that we’ve added to the practice, and all the behind-the-scenes team that we are an organization that has now grown to a pretty decent size, but completely all tele remote working. We do the podcast over Zoom. That I guess qualifies as well.

Connecting With Listeners

You’re still virtual. This is the thing that most people do think about their podcast. They think that they’re going to have direct connections to their listeners. You and I both know that once you get into podcasting, you can say there’s no way for you to connect to your subscribers. Apple and Spotify prevent that. That doesn’t happen. I find that those who have a personal message. People want to come back and they want to tell you their story. They want to reach out to you and say they got value from your guests or your resources. Did you find that early on? And are you finding that more and more now that you’re close to 150 episodes in?

We’ve especially noticed this. We were audio only at the beginning and then we went to video and started a YouTube channel. We see a lot of engagement on YouTube and a lot of comments, and now we even have team members who interact there and manage the comments. It establishes that connection and we can direct people over to start interacting with our team directly, which I think is very helpful.
Quite honestly, it helps make the podcast better. Getting that feedback is very useful in figuring out different types of guests.

We’ve had guests being suggested to us and things like that. It’s another aspect of it that I find useful. We’ve seen a lot of benefits from going to video and then not just posting the episodes to YouTube, but now we pull out the clips and we use those as separate shorts and reels on social media. Doing all of that really helps to magnify the message as well.

I can see that that’s working for you. Before we go, what’s next? Are you going to do some things differently in the next 150 plus? Are you going to do some things differently? Is there something that’s going to expand on the show? What are you going to do more of?

One of the big milestones for us is starting to bring back yes for second conversations. I’m excited for that. It is the continued growth, continuing to figure out new ways of getting this message out there, and expanding our reach because ultimately all of this is done in service of the mission to keep people off the operating table to prevent heart attacks. We’re always exploring better and bigger ways of doing that.

Thank you so much for coming on and bringing Stay Off My Operating Table to the podcasting ecosystem. We appreciate you.

Thank you.

Not every time I get a guest on do I think, “I’m totally going to download that,” and I’m going to read their book, but this is one. He built trust with me over this interview and conversation to the point that I bought the book and sent it to my mom. The interesting part is, I found out that my dad is reading it first and my mom hadn’t even read it yet. She’s still recovering. She’s still doing her physical therapy and doing all of those things. She hasn’t read it yet, but my dad is. That says a lot. Do you know what he asked me? He asked me do I trusted this guy whose book he was reading. I said, “I don’t know yet. I haven’t listened to all of his show, but he built trust with me on an interview, and here’s what he had to say.”

I told him a little bit about what you just read. My dad said, “I’m going to go check out his podcast now.” Now that he read the book, he’s going to check out the podcast. Hearing Dr. Ovadia’s voice, what he has to say, how much passion he has, and what he believes in, is going to be really valuable to make that transfer to someone saying, “I read this and I hear it, but now am I going to do it? Do I trust enough to do it?” The power of combining your podcast and your book is really strong and important. Making sure that you’re cross-marketing both those things is essential because when your book, you’re not referencing the fact that you have a podcast and that you’re going to provide updated information.

If they want to hear the latest, they should come to your show. I think that’s a critical miss for a lot of authors. Dr. Ovadia is not doing that. He’s really got that model of making the two work together. It’s part of his marketing model and how he nurtures his community. It’s about what he shares with his membership. It’s important for him to be able to combine both and make sure that as he’s building trust on his podcast, he’s letting them know, he does have this book, this resource for them that they could highlight, write down, and share with others. Maybe their family and friends are not podcast listeners. My dad certainly isn’t. At least not without a serious recommendation. Making sure that you do that is essential to any kind of message that you are passionate about getting out.

I’m glad Dr. Ovadia came on the show. I’m glad I have a copy now of Stay Off My Operating Table and have put it in my podcast playlist. I have not gotten through very many, I have to admit that, but my day job is a little busy listening to podcasts. I don’t get them through them quite as fast. I’m glad that it’s reaching out to the people who could use it the most, my parents. If you’ve got anyone in your life who needs to stay off a heart doctor’s operating table, go listen to his podcast, and check it out.

Listen to the advice that Dr. Ovadia gave us bout using the podcast to build that trust and how important it is for you to take your role seriously when you’re presenting serious advice that is going to affect people’s health and wellness. You take the job of vetting that information very seriously. Go listen to Stay Off My Operating Table and come back next episode as we talk to more podcasters in more areas that might be more relevant to your business and your podcasting niche.
