Overview

The Cardiac Surgery Clinic at UVA offers you and your family compassionate care alongside the most up-to-date treatments available. 

Our surgeons perform more chest surgery operations than any other program in the state, and we often treat patients who were initially considered inoperable or too high risk for surgery.

We treat a full range of cardiac diseases and conditions and specialize in a variety of techniques, including complex surgical approaches. 

In addition to open heart surgery, UVA surgeons perform complex procedures including minimally invasive surgical techniques for many heart diseases and conditions.

Our surgeons are also experts in repoerative (or "redo") surgery, heart transplant and congenital heart surgery for adults and children.

Your Team

We'll offer you an individualized care plan, and members of your team may include cardiologists, pharmacists, dietitians, exercise therapists, social workers and financial aid counselors.

If you were referred to UVA, we'll be sure to keep in touch with your primary care doctors.
