Cardiovascular Surgery

Cardiovascular Surgery

For some patients, cardiovascular surgery may ultimately be the best option. Alvarado surgeons have years of experience in coronary bypass surgery, valve repair and replacement, and pacemaker implantation.

As new technologies become available, we strive to acquire and apply them with great care. For example, in some cases, our surgeons may recommend minimally invasive procedures that require only small incisions.

For the last two decades, Alvarado Hospital physicians also have provided the region’s leading service for defibrillator extractions.

  • Cardiovascular surgery services include:
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
  • Valve replacement and repair
  • Off-pump (OPCAB) bypass surgery
  • Cardioverter defibrillator implantation
  • Transfusion-free surgical options
