Ascending and Descending Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm Repair

An aortic aneurysm that occurs in the chest area is called a thoracic aortic aneurysm. Thoracic aortic aneurysms are caused by the hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis, a plaque buildup within the wall of the arteries that over time causes the aorta to weaken.


Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting is a procedure that re-routes the blood flow to the heart. Also called CABG, this surgery treats blocked or narrowed arteries by bypassing the blocked area and creating a new pathway to the heart.

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Valve Repair and Replacement
