The Cardiac Surgery Division provides outstanding outcomes and the latest approaches for most aspects of cardiac surgery, such as those for:
Surgeon-Driven, Multidisciplinary Approach
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgical Techniques
Arterial bypass grafting is one important advance in which the division has nationally recognized expertise. Traditional bypass grafting uses veins in the leg. Newer approaches use the arteries from the arms instead, harvested using very small incisions at the wrist. When leg veins are still necessary, smaller incisions are also used just above the knee.
Because minimally and less-invasive procedures allow treatment with smaller incisions and less operative trauma patients benefit with less postoperative pain, limited scarring, faster recovery and diminished complications.
