Advanced Cardiac Surgery

Should you require cardiovascular surgery your heart is in good hands at Presence Health.

Many of our hospitals were the first in their areas to offer open heart surgery programs. To date, our surgeons have performed more than 8,400 procedures – with some of lowest readmission rates in Illinois, superior outcomes and a commitment to quality that has earned the highest possible rating from BlueCross BlueShield.

And our surgeons are continually striving to bring newer and more effective options to our communities. That includes the latest in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), as well as off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. This less invasive technique allows your surgeon to operate on the beating heart without the need for a heart-lung machine.

In addition to heart bypass, our surgical team also specializes in advanced techniques for:

  • Arrythmia, including cryogenic ablation to help stop irregular heart rhythms
  • Heart failure, including left ventricular assist device (LVADs) and heart transplant
  • Valvular disease, include heart valve repair and replacement
  • Vein and vascular conditions, including advanced catheter systems to treat peripheral vascular disease (PVD)

New Life-Saving Labs

We have the Fox River Valley’s first and only hybrid cardiac catheterization lab, which combines the capabilities of a cath lab with a state-of-the-art surgical suite. That means we can diagnose and treat heart attacks and other conditions with nonsurgical, catheter treatments (emergency stenting or angioplasty), or immediately move patients to surgery if a different intervention is required.
