Heart & Vascular Surgery

Comprehensive Heart & Vascular Surgical Care

If you have a condition that affects your heart or vascular (blood vessel) system, surgery may be necessary. In fact, it may be the best way to treat or prevent a life-threatening heart attack or stroke. If you and your doctor have decided heart or vascular surgery is right for you, our team at Banner Health is here to help.

Is Surgery an Option for My Heart or Vascular Condition?

We treat a wide range of conditions that affect the heart and vascular system, including:

  • Aneurysms
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Heart valve disease
  • Vascular disease

What Surgical Procedures Are Available for Heart & Vascular Conditions?

There are many different procedures to treat heart and vascular issues. From the placement of a stent – a small metal coil or mesh tube placed in a narrowed artery to hold it open – to heart transplant, we are skilled in the latest surgical procedures. If you have a heart valve condition, your doctor may recommend one of our advanced treatments, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

We always consider the least-invasive treatments first. Approaches such as robot-assisted surgery or catheter-based procedures can mean faster healing, shorter hospital stays and less pain for you. Our surgeons perform a variety of heart and vascular procedures, including:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
  • Mitral and aortic valve replacements or repairs
  • Peripheral vascular procedures
  • Transthoracic procedures
