St. Elizabeth Healthcare is home to one of the top-rated cardiac and thoracic surgery programs in the nation, offering comprehensive and coordinated surgical care. Our surgeons perform both traditional and minimally invasive procedures, including robotic heart surgery. As part of the St. Elizabeth Heart & Vascular Institute, they collaborate with cardiologists, vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists to determine the best treatment option for each patient. They participate in the Valve Center where patients are evaluated by a multidisciplinary team specializing in a minimally invasive approach to valve replacement. Read our patient success stories.
