Cardiovascular Surgery Procedures & Services at UHS

You may benefit from one of the many cardiovascular and thoracic surgery treatments available at UHS.

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery

CABG combats blockages associated with heart disease by removing or redirecting a blood vessel from another part of your body and guiding it to the heart to restore blood flow. This procedure traditionally uses a heart-lung machine to circulate your blood while your doctor tends to your heart.

Beating Heart Bypass Surgery

Beating heart bypass surgery combats blockages the same way as CABG surgery but does so without the use of a heart-lung machine. Instead, your doctor isolates the area of the heart he or she is working on while the other part of your heart continues to pump blood throughout your body.

Surgical Ablation

Surgical ablation treats irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia) by blocking the irregular impulses from traveling through your heart.

Pre-Op Optimization Class

Your UHS care team will help you best prepare for your valve procedure in a pre-op optimization class. In this class, you will learn tips and techniques to maximize healing after your procedure.
