Cardiac Surgery & Treatment Options with CVTSA
Since 1977, cardiac surgeons of Cardiac Vascular and Thoracic Surgery Associates (CVTSA) have performed heart surgery on more than 30,000 adult and pediatric patients. During this time, we’ve had the opportunity to pioneer many new treatment and recovery approaches to ensure that we always provide cardiac patients with the safest, most efficient care possible. Currently, we are working to reduce the use of blood products in the cardiac operating room. Meet our cardiac doctors.
Some of our milestones include performing many “firsts” in the Washington, DC metropolitan area such as:
• heart transplant,
• lung transplant,
• left ventricular assist device,
• robotic surgery,
• thoracic aortic graft, and
• minimally invasive aortic valve replacement
Our goal at CVTSA is to provide you with as much information as possible about your cardiac diagnosis and treatment options.
