Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery
Summa’s board certified cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons repair and redirect diseased blood vessels, as well as provide surgical treatment for conditions affecting the throat, lungs and esophagus. Our surgical team is expertly skilled in minimally invasive surgical techniques for conditions that are not treatable using less invasive strategies.
There are several conditions that can be treated with Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, including:
- Heart conditions due to blockages in the arteries (Coronary Artery Disease)
- Heart attacks
- Valvular heart defects such as Mitral Stenosis, Aortic Stenosis, Aortic Regurgitation, Mitral Regurgitation, Tricuspid regurgitation, Heart Valve Dysplasia
- Congenital abnormalities
Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death in the United States for men and women. When the arteries harden and become blocked, blood cannot flow freely to the heart causing serious complications or death.
Fortunately we have specialists who can intervene to solve this problem and remove the blockage.
- Coronary Artery Bypass Grafts (CABG)
Cutting Edge Technology at SCI
Summa Cardiovascular Institute (SCI) embraces the latest technology and is the first in the region to incorporate minimally invasive, robotic-assisted cardiac surgery. With 3-D visualization of the surgical area, the surgeon is able to see millimeter-sized veins appear as large as pencils. For patients, this surgical option can mean less invasive procedures, a shorter hospital stay, fewer complications, decreased post-operative pain and a speedier recovery.
