At the Providence Heart & Vascular Center we bring a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of heart disease utilizing leading edge technology combined with research and comprehensive, compassionate patient care. Our team of highly trained experts is committed to providing excellent care. In some cases, surgery may be your best treatment option. We offer some of the most advanced heart surgeries available.
- Heart Valve Disease - Your heart has four valves that are responsible for moving blood through the organ. Sometimes these valves have abnormalities or become damaged. As a result, blood flow is impaired, and your heart is forced to work harder.
- Coronary Artery Disease
- Heart Infections
- Heart Arrythmias
- Heart Murmurs
- Aortic Disease
- Atrial Septal Defects
- Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)
- Pericardial Disease
- Rheumatic Heart Disease
- Atrial Fibrillation - Atrial fibrillation is a rapid and disorganized heartbeat that may cause everything from heart failure to stroke
- Heart Valve Repair and Replacement Surgery (Aortic, Pulmonic, Tricuspid or Mitral) - Your heart valves direct blood flow between your heart’s chambers. When they’re working correctly, you can think of them as one-way doors. They keep blood moving like it should. If a valve isn’t working properly, however, we may need to repair it or replace it. A new valve can come from an animal or a human donor. We also have mechanical valves.
- Maze Procedure - The Maze procedure is a type of surgery that can correct atrial fibrillation. The procedure involves creating scar tissue in your atria with radio waves. This can create normal electrical impulses along a new pathway in the heart.
- Left Atrial Appendage Removal - Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a condition in which your heart’s upper chambers beat irregularly. It raises the risk that a clot will form, make its way to your brain and cause a stroke. By removing the left atrial appendage during surgery, we greatly reduce the risk of clots.
- Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG) - This surgical procedure is used to re-route the flow of blood around a blocked coronary artery. The surgeon takes a healthy blood vessel from another part of the body. They then relocate it in your heart so that it allows blood to flow around, or bypass, a blockage.
- Convergent Surgical Ablation
- Septal Myectomy - Cardiac surgeons remove a small amount of the thickened septal wall to widen the path the blood takes from the left ventricle to the aorta. Septal myectomy is considered when medications are not effective in treating HCM
