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.
U.S. News & World Report consistently names Cleveland Clinic as one of the nation’s top hospitals in its annual “America’s Best Hospitals” survey and has named Cleveland Clinic’s heart program No. 1 in the nation since 1995. Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute staff are committed to patient care, research and education.
