The Division of Cardiac Surgery provides consultative and therapeutic services for the surgical treatment of cardiac, pulmonary and esophageal diseases. We offer a full complement of cardiac services for acquired heart disease, congenital heart disease and transplantation. We offer minimally invasive and robotic surgeries, including minimally invasive, robotic mitral valve surgery.
Referrals for cardiac services can be made to individual faculty members, or may be channeled through the general information and referral service of the division office. Referrals for transplantation are made through the transplant programs listed.
