Adult Cardiac Surgery
At the University of Michigan Health System, we perform more than 2,000 heart operations annually. Our highly trained physicians, nurses, dietitians and other care givers work together to offer the expertise and resources required to make your surgery and hospital stay both comfortable and successful.
Our division of adult Cardiac Surgery continues to be a leader in all aspects of adult cardiac surgery with clinical interests and expertise in the operative treatment of coronary artery disease and the treatment of structural heart disease. Our operative treatment of valvular heart disease utilizes valve repair and valve preservation as well as valve replacement by standard or minimally invasive approaches. We are a leader in clinical treatment and research on Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) as well as Heart Transplantation and implantable assist devices.
Our aortic program includes open operative approaches as well as endovascular approaches for all portions of the aorta. We have expanded our program in the operative treatment of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias through standard as well as minimally invasive operative approaches. We have also expanded our program in pulmonary endarterectomy.
