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, CHI 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.
