Cardiac (Heart & Cardiovascular) Surgery

Thousands of patients a year utilize Presence Saint Joseph Hospital to mend their broken hearts;  they want a caring, faith-based environment that offers the kind of highly skilled, experienced surgical personnel and leading-edge cardiac technology usually found only at major heart centers.   

Advanced Surgical Procedures
Area hospitals transfer patients to Presence Saint Joseph Hospital for serious cardiiovascular surgery because we offer advanced open-heart surgery such as coronary bypass grafts, including both off-pump and on-pump procedures, as well as valve replacements and pericardial windows (small incisions in the sac enclosing the heart).

Surgical Team
Our surgical team has more than 100 years of combined experience. The team consists of  heart surgeons, all trained at leading cardiac centers, who are backed by a full complement of highly trained cardiac nurses, anesthesiologists, anesthetic nurses and assistants, and other skilled professionals.
