Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery

The Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery team provides quality care for complex and serious conditions that affect people of all ages. Heart (cardiac), vascular (blood vessels) and chest (thoracic) surgeons at Oklahoma heart institute diagnose and surgically treat conditions of the heart, lungs and chest. They take care of thousands of patients each year at their hospital at Hillcrest Medical Center and Hillcrest South campuses.

Our surgeons are on the leading edge of treating cardiovascular and cardiothoracic conditions, using the latest innovations, such as endovascular surgery, minimally invasive heart surgery and robot-assisted surgery.

Cardiothoracic Care

Our surgeons offer almost all types of cardiac surgery, including elective or emergency surgery for heart valve disease, aortic aneurysm, coronary artery disease, lung cancers, esophageal cancers, tracheal diseases, arrhythmias, heart failure, LVAD surgery, ECMO and more.

Our depth of experience allows us to perform complex operations, such as second or third heart surgeries and conditions previously deemed inoperable with success rates above the national average. Our team uses the newest surgical techniques, equipment and devices, including minimally invasive surgery, off-pump bypass, robotically assisted thoracic surgery and percutaneous procedures. As a participant in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) public reporting initiative, Oklahoma heart Institute has achieved three-star rating (highest) in several categories including the composite quality metrics for coronary bypass surgery.
