More Than 250 Off-Pump, All Arterial, No Aortic Touch Coronary Artery Bypass Surgeries Every Year

Studies demonstrate remarkably better results with our anaortic, all arterial, off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) by avoiding the trauma of cardiopulmonary bypass and aortic manipulation. Expected outcomes include a reduction in early mortality and perioperative neurological events, renal failure, blood product transfusions, and a shorter length of stay.

In addition to off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting, our team specializes in highly complex, technically demanding surgeries that few other centers perform:

  1. Stentectomy/endarterectomy: We have seen a growing need for this surgery with the increase in the use of coronary artery stents
  2. Congenital anomalous coronary artery surgery: Repairing birth defects in which the right coronary artery arises from the left side of the aorta 
  3. Combining OPCAB with ablation for atrial fibrillation: Concomitant ablation in CABG patients with preoperative AF is associated with lower stroke or systemic embolization and mortality

To ensure that we make the most effective use of your patients’ time and can provide them with the most reliable recommendations, please share their test results with us ahead of their consultation, including: ECHO (TTE), stress echocardiogram, cardiac catheterization, blood tests and labs, non-contrast CT or X-ray of chest, pulmonary function test, carotid artery duplex scan, and MRI.
