Facing heart surgery can be overwhelming for many patients and their families. Our surgeons take time to personally meet with each patient before their procedure to answer any questions or concerns. We emphasize doing the right procedure for the patient at the right time, making the care the patient receives specific to his or her needs.

Our nationally recognized surgeons also collaborate on each patient’s case, combining traditional procedures with the latest advances in medicine and surgery to customize treatment of even the most complex heart condition.
