First opened in 1994, our skilled surgeons have performed more than 5,000 open-heart procedures. The Vascular / Endovascular Surgery program similarly provides comprehensive vascular care incorporating non-invasive therapy, “cutting edge” minimally invasive procedures, as well as extensive open surgical revascularization. These programs are a valuable asset to area residents who would otherwise have to travel to Pittsburgh for this type of quality care.
Heritage Valley’s Open Heart Surgery program offers patients a wide variety of services such as coronary bypass grafting, adult congenital surgery, minimally invasive techniques, and much more. Our open heart surgery team, consisting of a primary cardiothoracic surgeon, another physician, a scrub nurse, a circulating nurse, a perfusionist, an anesthesiologist, a certified registered nurse anesthetist, and a physician’s assistant.
Similarly, the Vascular / Endovascular Surgery program offers a broad range of services including the management of peripheral arterial disease, extracranial cerebrovascular disease, aneurysmal disease, vascular access, venous and lymphatic pathology. Procedures are performed in both the Catheterization Laboratory as well as the Surgical Operating Suite. Endovascular technology has revolutionized vascular treatment paradigms and often patients can be treated for extensive pathologies with minimally invasive techniques such as stents, stent-grafts, angioplasty, atherectomy, etc, and leave the hospital within 24 hours.
The dedication of our team, state-of-the-art facilities, and surgical equipment enable us to provide patients with the most current procedures and the highest level of care possible.
