When you or someone you love needs a serious surgery, you want to be sure you’re choosing a provider with expertise you can trust. The cardiothoracic surgery team of heart, lung and chest surgeons and board certified cardiac anesthesiologists at HSHS St. Vincent Hospital is the most experienced in the region. We provide the latest, most effective surgical techniques and perform more bypass and valve surgeries than anyone across Northeast Wisconsin.
Surgeries performed in our dedicated cardiothoracic operating rooms include:
- Heart vessel bypass
- Valve repair/replacement
- Chest wall surgery
- Lung surgery
- Esophageal Surgery
- Pacemaker/defibrillator implant
- Congenital heart surgery
- Aortic vessel repair
The region’s only dedicated cardiovascular ICU
The healing process doesn’t stop at surgery. In fact, recovery care immediately following heart, lung, or chest surgery is equally important. That is why we have developed the region’s only dedicated cardiovascular intensive care unit (CVICU). Patients recovering in our CVICU are cared for by doctors, nurses and experts at every level specialized in the specific needs of cardiothoracic healing.
