Heart Care

Cardiovascular Surgery Treatements

Cardiovascular surgery

Cardiovascular surgery treats diseases and conditions of the heart and the blood vessels of the entire body. Common cardiovascular procedures include coronary bypass surgery, aortic or mitral valve replacement or repair, and aneurysm repair.

Arrhythmia surgery

A surgical procedure to correct irregular heart rhythms such as atrial fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia.

Congenital heart surgery

Congenital heart surgery corrects heart defects present at birth, improving heart function and overall health.

Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery

A surgical procedure used in which the blocked portion of the coronary artery is bypassed with another piece of blood vessel.

Heart transplant

A surgical option to treat advanced heart failure, a condition that occurs when the heart can’t pump enough oxygenated blood to meet the needs of the body’s organs.

Valvular surgery Heart valve surgery used to repair or replace diseased heart valves

Cardiac resynchronization therapy
Cardiovascular disease prevention
Carotid angioplasty and stenting
Carotid endarterectomy
Congenital heart disease surgery
Coronary bypass surgery
Heart transplant
Heart valve surgery
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs)
Lung transplant
Lung volume reduction surgery
Minimally invasive heart surgery

Cardiologists and cardiac surgeons work with a team of doctors trained in many areas to determine the most appropriate treatment for individual needs.
Aortic root surgery
Aortic valve repair and aortic valve replacement
Atrial fibrillation ablation
Atrial flutter ablation
Cardiac ablation
Cardiac catheterization
Cardiac rehabilitation

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD)

LVAD is a heart pump implanted to aid the left ventricle in pumping blood, used for severe heart failure cases.

Left ventricular remodeling/ surgical ventricular restoration

A technique that provides the heart with a more normal shape after a heart attack, allowing it to pump blood more efficiently.

Myectomy /myotomy

Myectomy removes heart muscle tissue in conditions like hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, while myotomy cuts muscle tissue for various medical reasons, like improving esophageal or urinary function.

Transmyocardial revascularization (TMR)

A procedure used to relieve severe angina or chest pain in patients who aren’t candidates for bypass surgery or angioplasty.
