With the latest equipment and a good experienced team our cardiologists can do treatment of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, arrythmia, obesity, metabolic syndrome etc. Investigative services including ECG, Echo, Color Doppler, Holter monitoring, Arterial and Venous Doppler, TMT etc. can also be performed.
In addition to traditional coronary artery bypass grafting, surgeons are highly trained in heart valve surgery (including valve repair and minimally invasive mitral valve and aortic valve replacement), OPCAB (beating-heart coronary bypass and MIDCAB). Division members also are highly experienced in endovascular vein harvesting for bypass surgery to help reduce complications and speed healing in the legs.
Division members also have expertise in vascular surgery to treat aneurysm and arterial occlusive disease of the thoracic and abdominal aorta, carotid artery and peripheral vessels. They are trained in endovascular stent repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms, as well as insertion of pacers and defibrillators. Additionally, our surgeons employ advanced minimally invasive and video-assisted techniques to treat lung cancer and esophageal disease.
These advanced surgical capabilities are part of the comprehensive diagnostic and treatment program offered at the Hospital. Physicians within the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery work closely with cardiologists, primary care physicians and other specialists to develop an appropriate treatment plan for each patient.
