Cardiac Surgery Procedures

Cardiac surgeons in the Heart & Vascular Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) continuously break new ground in cardiac surgery treatment, developing and refining innovative techniques and setting the standard of care for patients with heart disease.

From the world’s first mitral valve surgery to landmark heart transplants to pioneering procedures in minimally invasive endoscopic procedures, our cardiac surgeons have proven themselves as surgical leaders. Our specialized training—coupled with the high volume of procedures we perform—means better surgical outcomes and improved heart health for our patients.

Below is a list of traditional (open) and minimally invasive procedures performed by cardiac surgeons at the Heart & Vascular Center.
