Cardiac Surgery

The cardiothoracic surgical team is a multi-disciplinary one in which different specialists, working with the surgeon, are responsible for different areas of patient care and recovery. Our team includes vascular surgeons, cardiologists, pulmonologists, critical care nurses, respiratory and physical therapists and others.

We utilize state-of-the art technologies and surgical techniques. These include minimally invasive procedures and off pump. In addition, beating heart surgery, which eliminates the need for a heart bypass machine, is available for select patients.

At Englewood Cardiac Surgery Associates, we carefully evaluate each patient and offer only the most durable and effective solution for each individual. Click here to visit our site.
