Cardiac surgery is surgery on the heart and the large blood vessels in the chest. It covers a range of procedures, including bypass and valve surgery.
We offer a range cardiovascular procedures, carried out by our leading cardiac surgeons.
Using the latest surgical techniques, from minimally invasive valve surgery to off-pump bypass surgery, they treat patients with complex heart conditions.
Our surgeons work closely with your cardiologist to develop a personalised treatment programme for the best results.
As well as world-class heart surgeons, our cardiac team includes specialist cardiac nurses and technicians.
Your nursing team will be with you every step of the way, monitoring your health closely and making sure you're comfortable.
We also offer pre- and post- surgical care, including weight loss advice before surgery and exercise programmes after.
Our cardiac surgeons carry out complex cardiovascular procedures. These include:
- coronary artery bypass
- valve replacement or repair
- off-pump or ’beating heart’ coronary artery bypass grafts
- minimally-invasive coronary artery bypass, aortic and mitral valve surgery
- transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)
