While some cardiovascular conditions can be treated through nonsurgical means, in many cases, proper surgical intervention is necessary to get you where you need to be to further your overall wellness. Our specialists perform both traditional and minimally invasive procedures, as well as implantable cardiac devices, for a variety of both heart and vascular conditions, including:

  • Blocked or damaged arteries
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Heart attack
  • Heart arrhythmia

Types of vascular and heart surgery we offer

Whether you are experiencing clogged arteries, cardiac arrest or a damaged heart valve, each condition is unique, and that's how we treat it.

Heart surgery

Whether you are tending to damaged or nonfunctioning heart valves or are seeking treatment for a heart attack or arrhythmia, heart surgery requires experienced, specialized care. Our heart surgeons utilize cutting edge technologies and techniques to get you feeling like yourself as quickly and safely as possible. Some of the most common heart procedures we perform include:

  • Aneurysm repair
  • Atrial fibrillation surgery
  • Bypass surgery
  • Cardiac device implantation, like pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs)
  • Cardiomyoplasty

Vascular surgery

A clogged or damaged artery can throw off the flow and functionality of your entire circulatory system. Whether you are experiencing difficulties with blood vessels or the lymphatic system, our vascular surgeons are here to address issues and ensure that your vascular system runs smoothly. Vascular surgery procedures we perform include:

  • Open abdominal, carotid and femoral endarterectomy
  • Bypass surgery
  • Thrombectomy

Minimally invasive cardiovascular surgery

While our surgeons are equipped for traditional, open surgery, we try to utilize minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. With faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays, less pain, less scarring and less blood loss, minimally invasive surgery offers the same benefits of traditional open surgeries, but without their inherent potential complications. As our priority is getting you back to feeling like yourself in the most efficient and effective way, minimally invasive surgery has emerged as the way of the future towards ensuring success in this pursuit.

Many of the most common heart and vascular surgeries can now be accomplished through minimally invasive means, including:

  • Atherectomy
  • Cardiothoracic procedures
  • Carotid artery surgery
  • Coronary and balloon angioplasty
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
  • Convergent maze procedure
  • Cox maze procedure
  • Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)
  • Mitral valve replacement
  • Peripheral artery bypass
  • Stent procedures
