About Heart Surgery at OHSU

The Adult Cardiac Surgery program at OHSU focuses on the treatment of acquired diseases affecting the heart and great vessels. Heart surgery treatment options range from state-of-the-art minimally invasive options to open heart and complex procedures.

We serve as a regional resource for the care of patients with advanced diseases requiring complex treatments. All OHSU heart surgeons are board certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgeons. Our team of cardiology specialists is advancing the care of patients with heart disease by employing innovative and less invasive surgical techniques. 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.
