Conditions We Treat

Heart Surgery Procedures We Perform

Heart surgery may be your best option if more conservative treatments like lifestyle changes or medications aren’t working or safe for you. Turn to our experienced cardiac surgeons for a wide range of surgical procedures, including:

  • Aortic valve replacements
  • Combined coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic valve replacement
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
  • Mitral valve repair and replacement
  • Valve-sparing aortic root replacement
  • Complex heart and thoracic surgery
  • Repair of ascending aortic aneurysms without the need for a prosthetic valve replacement
  • Thoracic aortic endografting
  • Simultaneous repair of two or three heart valves (double and triple valve surgery)
  • Surgical repair of aortic aneurysms, including thoracic aortic endografts – a minimally invasive procedure during which surgeons insert a tube into the aorta to provide support for a weakened section

Bloodless Medicine & Surgery

Englewood Health Physician Network providers participate in a structured bloodless (transfusion-free) program that provides patients for whom blood is not an option with consistently accessible, high-quality care. Learn more about our program.

Cardiac Intensive Care

Englewood Hospital has a dedicated cardiovascular intensive care unit where patients are admitted after surgery. Care is provided by specialized physicians, called intensivists, and critical care nurses, who work closely with our cardiothoracic surgeons to manage patients post-operatively. Our cardiothoracic surgeons are available around-the-clock to oversee the post-operative care of our heart surgery patients in the intensive care unit and throughout their hospital stay.
