Jefferson Health Northeast


Cardiothoracic Surgery Program


The team of senior, board-certified cardiac surgeons at Jefferson Torresdale Hospital has established a reputation that is unmatched in the Delaware Valley. The facility provides state-of-the-art, exclusive cardiac operating suites and intensive care beds supported by our experienced nursing staff.

Advances in tools, techniques and skills have steadily improved success rates for heart surgery and decreased the rate of both temporary and long-term complications.  New innovations have continued to decrease the invasiveness of heart surgery, permitting patients shorter stays in the hospital and faster recovery.  Better knowledge and capabilities in presurgical care and in cardiac rehabilitation are also helping to return patients to daily life faster, post-surgery.

Surgeons at the Jefferson Torresdale Hospital's Heart Center place increasing emphasis on minimally-invasive surgery and off-pump procedures.  Our center performs hundreds of cardiovascular surgical procedures each year from a highly experienced and accomplished team.
