Cardiac Surgery

Home » Medical Services » Cardiovascular Services » Cardiac Surgery

Heart surgery is used to correct heart problems when other treatments haven't worked or aren't appropriate. It can repair or replace heart valves, repair abnormal or damaged structures, or implant medical devices. 

Your cardiologist, a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating heart problems, and your cardiothoracic surgeon can help you decide if surgery is right for you. 

Types of Surgery

Our heart surgery centers offer:

  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Valve replacement surgery
  • Cardiac implants
