The Section of Adult Cardiac Surgery at OHSU focuses on the treatment of acquired diseases affecting the heart and great vessels. Our surgeons, all of whom are board certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgeons, along with our entire team, are advancing the care of patients with heart disease by employing innovative and less invasive surgical techniques. We serve as a regional resource for the care of patients with advanced diseases requiring complex treatments. In addition to on- and off-pump coronary artery bypass procedures, our surgeons perform a large volume of complex heart valve repair and replacement procedures, aneurysm repairs, and procedures for heart failure. We also offer a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of disorders of the thoracic aorta. Our core mission is to provide all of our patients and their families with the best possible care through outstanding surgical results as well as through comprehensive and compassionate care.
