The Heart and Vascular Institute is one of the largest cardiovascular programs in Pennsylvania. When appropriate, our heart surgeons partner with interventional cardiologists to perform minimally invasive procedures that correct valve problems or arrhythmias. This approach eases recovery and offers excellent results.
Heart surgery at LVHN can treat a range of cardiovascular problems, including heart valve issues, heart disease and arrhythmias.
