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 activity faster, after operations.
Surgeons at the Jefferson Torresdale Hospital's Heart Center place increasing emphasis on minimally invasive surgery and off-pump procedures. Because our center performs hundreds of cardiovascular surgical procedures each year, we provide heart surgery from a highly experienced and accomplished team.
