Patient Care

More than 950 Yale physicians provide primary and specialty care for patients through Yale Medical Group. Yale Medical Group delivers advanced care in more than 100 specialties and subspecialties, and has centers of excellence in such fields as cancer, cardiac care, minimally invasive surgery, and organ transplantation. Yale physicians have made many historical contributions, including the first use of cancer chemotherapy, the first artificial heart pump, and the first insulin infusion pump for diabetes. Today they perform such groundbreaking procedures as NOTES, a surgery without incisions, and recently became the first in the country to treat a patient with a life-threatening heart defect using an engineered blood vessel made from the patient’s own cells. Yale Medical Group is a major referral center for Connecticut and New England, and treats patients from throughout the world.
