Our cardiothoracic experts have a unique expertise which allows them to continue to pioneer and advance the latest diagnostic and surgical procedures. They realize that heart and chest problems are complex and need a special kind of management, so they look at the whole patient instead of just your heart. One procedure may fix the heart problem, but be toxic to other organs and the rest of the body. As the heart and lungs are connected to the entire body, our experts can put together a personalized team that can help manage the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, brain and other organs.
They perform the most complicated heart and chest procedures in the region. Their expertise and experience along with the great care teams provide the best outcomes for you and your loved ones. For that reason, UHealth is the best place to get a second opinion before you have any procedure done. We’re leading the way, and saving lives.
