The cardiovascular surgery program at MHVI specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of heart and lung disease. These include coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, lung cancer, aortic aneurysms, and adult congenital heart diseases.
MHVI, through a long-time partnership with surgeons from Twin Cities Heart and Lung, offers a full spectrum of services and treatments, including open heart surgery (heart bypass surgery, valve replacement surgery, aneurysm repair), surgical treatment of carotid artery disease, as well as surgery for the treatment for atrial fibrillation. In addition, we offer minimally invasive open heart surgery for patients who are considered appropriate candidates. MHVI surgeons are leaders in the Twin Cities for utilizing minimally invasive and robotically assisted approaches to both heart and lung conditions. Our team of surgeons will work closely with your cardiologists and primary care physician to make sure you receive the best, most coordinated care possible.
Cardiovascular surgeons at MHVI have built Mercy Hospital into one of the top heart bypass surgery programs in the United States. They have previously been recognized by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and Consumer Reports for their excellence in clinical outcomes.
