Heart Surgery

This field is constantly evolving, and Lake Health cardiovascular surgeons are at the forefront. We utilize the latest techniques, technology and medical devices to perform a wide range of cardiac procedures, including a full spectrum of minimally invasive procedures, from bypass surgery to valve repair and replacement.

Partnering with the Cleveland Clinic

Since 1997, Lake Health has partnered with the Cleveland Clinic Heart Surgery Program to give you local access to leading-edge cardiovascular care. Using the most advanced technologies and minimally invasive techniques, we’ve performed thousands of cardiac surgeries, including open-heart surgery, coronary revascularization, valve repair and replacement, and aortic dissection.

The result is fewer complications, superior outcomes and success rates that rank among the nation’s best.
