Advanced Surgical Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease

Our heart surgery program continues the legacy of Dr. Norman Shumway, who completed the first adult heart transplant in the U.S. in 1968. Our internationally recognized cardiac surgeons perform advanced surgical procedures and pioneer new ones, with an emphasis on minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. 

Our clinical excellence combined with our ground-breaking research makes us one of the top heart surgery programs in the nation.
