Heart and vascular surgery

If your heart or blood vessels have been damaged — by conditions such as heart failure or congenital heart abnormalities — cardiovascular surgeons work to repair them. They may use traditional surgery or minimally invasive approaches, which can enable a faster recovery for you.

Heart conditions we treat with surgery

As part of our complete cardiac services, we will do our best to treat you without surgery. When the best treatment is surgery, however, we offer advanced surgical care for many conditions, including:

  • Aortic aneurysms and valve issues
  • Aortic valve stenosis
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats)
  • Mitral valve regurgitation and prolapse

Heart and vascular procedures we offer

Our Arrhythmia Center and specialists care for you throughout your diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Some of our offerings include:

  • Aortic valve replacement and repair
  • Convergent "maze" procedure
  • Coronary angioplasty and stenting
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
  • Endoscopic vein harvest
  • Mitral valve replacement and repair
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm repair
  • Transmyocardial revascularization (TMR)
  • Ventricular aneurysm repair

During cardiovascular surgery, we may use perfusion equipment, also known as heart-lung machines, and cardiac anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety during surgery. Your doctor will talk to you about this beforehand, so you understand what to expect.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)

TAVR is an innovative, minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat aortic valve stenosis. It replaces a damaged aortic valve without removing the improperly functioning, damaged valve. Instead, a replacement valve is wedged into the former location of the damaged valve.

Because TAVR is minimally invasive, it is not considered open-heart surgery. Specifically, TAVR is unlike open-heart surgery because:

  • It is a closed-chest treatment.
  • It eliminates the need for perfusion equipment (heart-lung machine).
  • It does not require stopping the heart.
  • It takes place while your heart is still beating.
  • It is performed by TAVR surgeons with specialized training in structural heart surgery.

We can tell you everything you need to know about the TAVR procedure, just call our heart valve nurse navigator at (727) 819-2969.
