Open-Heart Surgery

A patient unresponsive to medication and other therapies may be a candidate for surgical intervention. If you are not a candidate for minimally invasive cardiac surgery, your cardiologist may recommend open-heart surgery. To date, CHI St. Luke’s Health has performed more than 115,000 open-heart surgeries.
