Why Choose Memorial for Heart SurgeryThe_Society_of_Thoracic_Surgeons_logo

  • Our cardiac surgery program has consistently earned a three-star rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) in all three cardiac surgery categories. This is an achievement that less than one percent of cardiovascular centers nationwide can match.
  • Our patients have the highest patient satisfaction scores in Broward County, with a rating of 95 percent.
  • CareChex has named us among the top ten percent of healthcare providers for “excellence in cardiac care.”

Our team specializes in adult cardiac surgery including:

  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) – a treatment for patients with a narrowed aortic heart valve and who are at high risk for open-heart surgery due to age or other health conditions
  • The maze procedure – treats atrial fibrillation with ablation, which creates scar tissue that helps stop the irregular heartbeat
  • Heart transplant – we were the first hospital in Broward County to perform this surgery

Whenever possible our surgeons use advanced, minimally invasive surgical procedures. Minimally invasive heart surgery involves a small incision in the chest, rather than a large one along your breastbone.
