Virtua Heart Surgery - NJ

Recognized Nationally for Advanced Care

Virtua Health’s heart surgery program provides unmatched expertise in both conventional and less-invasive approaches to cardiothoracic (CT) and cardiovascular surgery, leading the way in newer, minimally invasive techniques that reduce pain and shorten your recovery time.

We’re one of the leading and largest providers of heart care in the region, recognized nationally for our quality of care. Our surgeons are among the most experienced in the region, performing more than 5,000 cases in the past five years.

Our “sternal-sparing” procedures utilize robot-assisted and minimally invasive methods that avoid cutting bone and major muscles, reducing post-surgery discomfort, blood loss, and scarring, and shortening your time spent in the hospital. Procedures may be performed while the heart is still beating, thereby eliminating the need for heart-lung bypass.

Our heart surgeons perform the following procedures: 

  • Robot-assisted heart surgery
  • Minimally invasive heart surgery
  • Coronary bypass surgery (CABG)
  • Surgery to repair heart arrhythmia (rhythm) disorders
  • Aneurysm surgery
  • Vascular surgery
  • Thoracic surgery
  • Valve repair and replacement, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and MitraClip

Virtua’s heart surgery program also offers open-heart surgery to correct heart wall defects when other more conservative or less-invasive steps are not adequate. In addition, Virtua’s thoracic surgery program offers expert care for lung and chest conditions.
