Heart disease comes in many forms. It can be stable or severe, straight-forward or complex, and it can affect one small part of the heart or the whole thing. But no matter what kind of heart condition you or your loved one is dealing with, help is available. Our cardiac surgeons work closely with doctors from our Division of Cardiology to always help you make the most informed choice between medication-based and surgical treatment options.
