Full Range of Cardiac Surgical Service

Experience and outcomes matter when choosing a hospital for your heart surgery. Cleveland Clinic heart surgeons have vast experience and expertise in all areas of heart surgery including:

Mitral Valve Repair

Cleveland Clinic has the largest heart valve surgery practice in the United States and our heart transplant program is one of the three largest transplant programs in the country. Even complex operations, such as second and third bypass operations and aortic and great vessel surgery, are routinely performed at Cleveland Clinic with excellent results.  

Patient-centered care

We strive to provide each patient and family member with education, support and world-class medical care extending from your first visit to Cleveland Clinic to your discharge home. We are also proud to provide personal services (including a free “concierge” service for out-of-state patients) that put the comfort and well-being of cardiac surgery patients before all other considerations.

Superior Outcomes

Robotic Heart Surgery

Every year, Cleveland Clinic heart surgeons achieve outstanding surgical outcomes – even for the most complex, difficult cases.

Latest Advances

Cleveland Clinic heart surgeons are on the cutting-edge of new, advanced treatment options that were once considered inconceivable, such as minimally invasive cardiac surgery, “off-pump” bypass, robotically assisted surgery, and laser heart surgery (trans-myocardial laser revascularization).
