Heart Surgery

There is no doubt that the heart is one of our most important organs. It is at the center of all that we do. It pumps lifesaving blood throughout our bodies, allowing organs to function and keeps us alive. A healthy heart and a healthy life go hand-in-hand.

This amazing muscle pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood as it contracts and expands about 100,000 times per day. That is just one of many reasons why keeping your heart in good shape is so important.

Heart health problems aren't uncommon. In many cases, heart conditions can be treated by making lifestyle changes, such as stopping smoking, losing weight, exercising more and taking medications. In some cases, surgical intervention is needed to repair or restore cardiac function.
