Superior Surgical Care Designed for You
Contemplating heart surgery is already an anxious experience—finding the right doctors should not be. At Temple, we make it easy by offering you experienced and comprehensive heart surgery care. Our physicians have advanced surgical skills and perform hundreds of different types of heart surgeries every year using all the most up-to-date techniques—robotic-assisted, minimally invasive, and open. This means our physicians can always recommend the most appropriate surgery for your situation.
At Temple, we are proud of our technology and the growing success of our minimally invasive heart program. Our staff is committed to providing innovative patient care solutions during both surgery and recovery.
Outstanding Patient Care Before, During, and After Heart Surgery
Many patients want to know what to expect during the recovery process. "How long before I can go back to work?" and "When can I see my family after surgery?" are important questions to our patients. That is why our entire heart surgery process is highly coordinated, with built-in support and care at every stage. You will be monitored 24/7 by cardiac intensivists. Your recovery will be managed by your heart surgeon and our large cardiac staff. And our specially trained nurses will provide ongoing monitoring and support. See Treatments for descriptions of the most common heart procedures and ask your surgeon for details on what to expect with your specific surgery.
