Treatments for Heart & Vascular Care

Surgical Procedures

Aortic Aneurysm Surgery

When minimally invasive intervention methods for treating abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are no longer an option, a vascular care physician may recommend aortic repair surgery as the best course of treatment.

Type:
Surgery

Carotid Endartectomy Surgery

Carotid endartectomy surgery is performed to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked carotid artery.

Type:
Surgery

Congenital Heart Surgery

Congenital heart surgery can correct or improve heart disease malformations that developed before birth and are producing symptoms at birth, during childhood, or in adulthood.

Type:
Surgery

Coronary Artery Bypass (CABG) Surgery

Coronary artery bypass (CABG) surgery, also referred to as Coronary Revascularization, is a surgical procedure that allows blood to bypass or flow around clogged arteries bringing more blood and oxygen to the heart. It is often called CABG (pronounced like the word "cabbage") which stands for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting.

Type:
Surgery

Heart Valve Repair or Replacement Surgery

In this video Dr. Bethencourt performs an open-heart surgery to repair a leaking mitrial valve and tricuspid valve and to treat atrial fibrillation.

Type:
Surgery

Maze Surgery

Maze surgery treats atrial fibrillation, a type of an abnormal heart rhythm, by creating a "maze" of new electrical pathways so that electrical impulses can travel easily through the heart.

Type:
Surgery

Peripheral Vascular Surgery

Peripheral vascular surgery can be performed as an endarterectomy procedure, a technique used to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked artery.

Type:
Surgery

Robotic-Assisted Heart Surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System uses robotic computer technology providing breakthrough minimally invasive surgical capabilities that offer greater surgical benefits.

Type:
Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Septal Myectomy Surgery

Septal myectomy surgery is performed to remove part of an enlarged heart muscle called the septal muscle.

Type:
Surgery

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, is delivered by a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Catheter Ablation

Catheter ablation is a non-surgical technique used to pinpoint and interrupt specific abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Minimally Invasive Direct CAB (MIDCAB) Surgery

A coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgical procedure that is performed without having the heart stopped and connected to a heart-lung machine.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Maze Surgery

Minimally invasive maze surgery, also known as mini-maze, is an advanced procedure for atrial fibrillation.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Surgery

Valvuloplasty

Valvuloplasty is a minimally invasive procedure performed to increase the opening of a narrowed or defective valve in the heart.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Robotic-Assisted Procedures

Robotic-Assisted Heart Valve Repair or Replacement

Robotic-assisted heart valve repair or replacement surgery using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System is performed to mend defective or diseased mitral or tricuspid valves.

Type:
Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Direct CAB Surgery

Robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System reduces the risks associated with the use of the heart-lung machine—cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and allows for a faster recovery.

Type:
Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Maze Surgery

This minimally invasive procedure, similar to MAZE surgery, uses ablation rather than a scalpel and is performed with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System, a robotic computer technology.

Type:
Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic-Assisted Mitral Valve Repair Surgery

Robotic- assisted mitral valve surgery is a type of minimally invasive heart surgery performed by a cardiac surgeon with an endoscopic, closed-chest approach. This procedure is performed when the mitral valve does not function properly.

Type:
Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Noninvasive Therapy

Cardioversion

Cardioversion is a procedure that can restore a fast or irregular heartbeat to a normal rhythm. A fast or irregular heartbeat is called an arrhythmia.

Type:
Noninvasive Therapy

External Cardiac Counterpulsation

External cardiac counterpulsation is a non-invasive outpatient technique performed to decrease chest pain (angina pectoris) by increasing oxygen-rich blood flow to the heart.

Type:
Noninvasive Therapy

Peripheral Angioplasty & Stenting

Carotid Angioplasty & Stenting

Carotid angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure where a catheter with a balloon tip is inserted into a carotid artery and inflated to compress the plaque buildup in the blocked area.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

Peripheral Angioplasty & Stenting

Peripheral angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure where a catheter with a balloon tip is inserted into a peripheral artery. Peripheral stents are often implanted in conjunction with balloon angioplasty.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure

State-of-the-Art Angiography Suite

The suite takes minimally invasive capabilities to a higher level, with advanced imaging technology supporting a wide variety of interventional vascular procedures.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Surgery

Electrophysiology

Pacemaker Implant

An artificial pacemaker is a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside the chest or attached externally for temporary use.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Procedure
