About Us: Cardiac Surgery
Our cardiac surgeons have a reputation as the best in the region and among the finest in the nation. Meet our cardiac surgeons.
Team approach to cardiac care
There are many different aspects to consider when treating patients with cardiac disease. Our cardiac surgeons work in teams with other cardiac experts, including cardiac imaging specialists, interventional cardiologists, pulmonologists, radiologists and nurses to complete the entire picture for each patient. We are committed to a team approach to care.
The advantage of experience in cardiac surgery
We are one of the highest volume cardiac surgery centers in the Washington metropolitan area. Volume and experience also translate into best practices based on outcomes. Our entire team sees a large number of patients per year. We continually refine surgical techniques, so you receive the least invasive surgical option that will also bring the best long-term results.
Cardiac surgery database for better patient care
We have compiled a cardiac surgery database containing data on more than 60,000 cases from the past 30 years. This unique resource helps us continually improve patient care. It gives our physicians a direct window on the practices and approaches that produce the most successful outcomes for our patients. Few cardiac centers have anything like it.
Sophisticated communication and electronic medical records
Our sophisticated information management and communications capabilities are powerful resources for integrating MedStar Heart Institute services and locations, from enabling real-time sharing of patient images and data to supporting electronic medical records. This means you can receive advanced cardiac care no matter your location—at one of our sister hospitals, or at one of our satellite locations. Learn more: Why Choose MedStar Heart Institute.
