Open heart surgery, also known as cardiac surgery, is a complex surgical procedure that involves repairing or replacing damaged heart tissue. This type of surgery is often required to treat a variety of heart conditions, including coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, congenital heart defects, and more.
At Regions Stroke & Neuroscience Hospital, we understand that the decision to undergo open heart surgery can be a daunting one. That’s why we strive to provide our patients with the highest level of care and support throughout the entire process.
Our team of experienced cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and nurses work together to ensure that each patient receives personalized care that is tailored to their unique needs. We use the latest technologies and techniques to perform open heart surgery with the highest degree of precision and safety.
The procedure typically involves making an incision in the chest to access the heart, stopping the heart temporarily, and using a heart-lung machine to maintain circulation while the surgery is performed. Depending on the specific condition being treated, the surgeon may perform bypass surgery to reroute blood flow around blocked arteries, repair or replace damaged heart valves, or perform other necessary repairs.

Our team of healthcare professionals will work with you to develop a personalized rehabilitation plan that will help you regain your strength and get back to your daily activities as soon as possible.
