Additional cardiovascular surgical services

Additional cardiovascular surgical services:

  • minimally invasive procedures
  • minimally invasive robotic surgery
  • on- and off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting
  • valve repair and replacement
  • valve-sparing aortic root replacement
  • heart transplantation
  • implantation of ventricular assist devices (VAD)
  • thoracic aortic aneurysm repair
  • thoracic aortic aneurysm stenting
  • hybrid procedures on the aorta and coronary arteries with simultaneous surgery and stenting
  • treatment of aortic disease processes

Other frequently performed procedures include:

  • Surgery for hypertrophic cardiomyopathies (formerly called IHSS), where surgeons remove part of the cardiac muscle from the septum to relieve high pressure in the heart. Alternatively, our cardiologists may shrink the septal muscle with intracoronary injections.
  • Valve repair and replacement for aortic and mitral valve pathology employing innovative techniques such as:
    • annuloplasty
    • chordal replacement
    • leaflet excision
    • valve resuspension
    • homograft replacement of the aortic valve and root
    • thoracic aortic aneurysm treatment employing…
      • deep hypothermia
      • circulatory arrest
      • antegrade and/or retrograde cerebral perfusion for central nervous system protection
