About Heart Surgery
Patients have heart surgery to fix problems when other treatments, like medications, don’t work effectively. Heart surgery can greatly improve the heart’s function and help people live healthier lives.
During heart surgery, a surgeon makes an incision in the patient’s chest to carefully repair or replace damaged parts of the heart, such as blocked blood vessels or diseased valves. Patients typically remain at the hospital briefly after surgery for monitoring as they recover. Recovery can vary depending on the patient and the procedure’s complexity, but technological advances are making surgery less invasive, improving outcomes and reducing recovery times.
Heart surgery is oftentimes the most effective approach for our patients who have severe or complex heart conditions. Depending on the type of surgery, our cardiovascular surgeons are often able to improve or restore proper heart function. As a result, many of our patients are able to increase their physical activity, which can improve quality of life and potentially lead to a longer life.
