Open-Heart Surgery

A patient unresponsive to medication and other therapies may be a candidate for surgical intervention. If you are not a candidate for minimally invasive cardiac surgery, your cardiologist may recommend open-heart surgery. To date, St. Luke’s Health has performed more than 115,000 open-heart surgeries.

How Open-Heart Surgery Can Help

Our team performs open-heart surgery to:

  • Restore blood flow through coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)
  • Repair a structural problem with the heart
  • Implant necessary medical devices
  • Transplant a donor heart

We also offer rehabilitation services to promote a healthy recovery.
