Heart & Vascular Surgery
Using the Latest Technology for your heart
We are committed to using the latest technology available to provide the best care possible to you and to continue to find new ways to treat coronary disease. Our use of technology has been nationally recognized, including storing images digitally and entering patient orders electronically. The use of laser technology and robotic techniques are expanding as well.
Aortic Disease Surgery
To treat aortic disease, physicians formulate a plan of care for the patient that is discussed with both the patient and the family. In addition to open surgical repair, we use minimally invasive and hybrid approaches to achieve lower morbidity and mortality and greatly improved outcomes. Click here to learn more.
Aortic Valve Surgery
The surgeons at Maimonides offer three types of approaches to performing aortic valve surgery. There are very specific reasons for each of these approaches, which your surgeon will discuss with you during the planning stages of your surgery. Click here to learn more.
Atrial Fibrillation Surgery
The Maze Procedure has had excellent results in curing Atrial Fibrillation (AF). During this procedure a surgeon makes numerous small incisions on the atria to block the flow of excess electrical signals that cause AF. Click here to learn more.
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
The traditional technique involves an incision down the front of the chest through the breastbone (median sternotomy). Newer techniques are currently used at our institution to improve the results and minimize discomfort after surgery. Click here to learn more.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive valve surgery provides outcomes that are equal or superior to conventional open-heart surgery, with the additional benefits of fewer complications, smaller incisions, reduced risk of bleeding, fewer transfusions, and shortened recovery time. Significant benefits for patients include less pain, faster healing, and speedier return to normal function. In expert hands, most mitral valve and aortic valve procedures can be performed using minimally invasive techniques. Click here to learn more.
Mitral Valve Surgery
Modern mitral valve repair consists of surgically remodeling or reconstructing the valve to eliminate any leakage or blockage. While the techniques can differ, the principles of restoring adequate leaflet coaptation in the annular plane, and thus competency of the valve, remain the same. Click here to learn more.
