As heart surgery has evolved over the years, John Muir Health has remained at the forefront. In addition to more traditional approaches to cardiac surgery and valve repair, we also offer revolutionary techniques and procedures such as minimally invasive valve surgery and beating heart bypass surgery that reduce post-operative complications.
Specially trained cardiac surgeons and anesthesiologists, physician assistants, cardiac operating room teams, nurses, and other staff comprise our cardiac surgery team.
