A Message from the Section Chief
The Cardiac Surgery team knows that patients and their loved ones put their trust in us, fully and completely, and we are honored to live up to the task of providing them with the finest, most compassionate cardiovascular care. Our focus on innovation and research allows us to use the most advanced technologies to provide patients with smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, and less postoperative discomfort, whenever possible. We understand that the prospect of undergoing cardiac surgery is difficult. To that end, we passionately commit ourselves to excellence to ensure that patients receive the best care possible; and we dedicate ourselves to providing them with ample communication to help take the fear and confusion out of their experience.
I want to thank you for your interest in Yale Cardiac Surgery and I invite you to browse our website for more information about our work and our team of leaders.
