If your heart doctor has recommended cardiac surgery for you or your loved one, you are in good hands. Banner Health's Heart team is among the top in the nation. From getting an accurate diagnosis to getting you back home and to your life, our experts make sure to provide the most comprehensive care for your particular situation.

Your surgeon may have chosen a minimally invasive procedure to repair your heart. What this means is that smaller incisions are used, which will allow for a quicker recovery time. Robotic assisted surgery may also have been mentioned to you. Using a robotic system, such as the da Vinci Robot System, the surgeon, controlling the robot's arms along with a highly advanced vision system, is able to get into hard-to-reach areas and make tiny incisions for more accurate surgery.

Always on the forefront of research and surgical training, you have the combined knowledge and expertise of all of Banner Health by your side for your heart surgery. Among the many heart procedures performed are:

  • TAVR
  • MitraClip®
