Advanced Heart and Lung Surgery for Children and Adults
SLUCare cardiothoracic surgeons offer some of the most advanced treatments available in St. Louis for heart and lung diseases. Our specialists treat both adult and pediatric heart problems, managing congenital and acquired cardiovascular disease, as well as diseases of the lung and esophagus.
SLUCare heart surgeons are nationally recognized for developing innovative treatments, including new procedures like the hybrid maze, a minimally-invasive "hybrid" approach to treating atrial fibrillation (AFIB) that combines surgery and catheter-based techniques to put a patient's heart back into proper rhythm.
Our providers also offer mechanical circulatory support and replacement devices for the heart.
