The Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery is one of the largest, most experienced cardiac surgery groups in the world. Each year, our surgeons care for thousands of patients, young and old, who require virtually every type of heart surgery including heart bypass surgery; elective or emergency surgery for aortic aneurysm, coronary artery disease, arrhythmias (such as atrial fibrillation), heart failure, marfan syndrome and other less common conditions; and heart valve surgery for valve disease (such as mitral regurgitation or aortic stenosis). Our staff works with the newest surgical techniques, equipment and devices.
The Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute has been ranked the best in heart care in America since 1995, according to U.S. News & World Report's annual survey. Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute staff are committed to patient care, research and education.
