Cardiac Surgery

Standard and advanced techniques for coronary artery bypass surgery, valve replacement and repair, and minimally invasive off-pump cardiac surgery as well as aortic dissection repair and the removal of cardiac tumors and the repair of trauma to the heart.

Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery

Treatment of blockage in heart. Most commonly referred to as simply "bypass surgery," this surgery is often performed in people who have angina (chest pain) and coronary artery disease (heart disease where plaque has built up in the arteries). During the surgery, a bypass is created by grafting a piece of a vein above and below the blocked area of a coronary artery, enabling blood to flow around the obstruction. Veins are usually taken from the leg, but arteries from the chest or arm may also be used to create a bypass graft.

Heart Valve Surgery

Heart Valve Replacement

In this surgical procedure, a mechanical or tissue valve is transplanted into the heart to replace the damaged valve.

Heart Valve Repair

A surgical procedure in which a stenotic or regurgetent valve is repaired rather than replaced.

Heart Arrhythmia Surgery

Irregular Heart Beat (Arrhythmia) Surgery to correct heart rhythms.

Aneurysm Surgery
