OPEN HEART SURGERY

Since 1992, Westmoreland Regional Hospital has offered the only open heart surgery program in Westmoreland County. And one which rivals that of any major city hospital.

Patients no longer have to travel great distances to receive top surgical expertise. They can now undergo surgery, recovery and rehabilitation close to the comfort of their own homes.

The Heartcenter's seasoned cardiac surgeons are skilled in all aspects of cardiac and thoracic surgery, including short- and long-term support of diseased hearts. They also perform pacemaker and automatic defibrillator implantation, evaluation and follow-up. And most surgical procedures are performed using minimally invasive techniques that can dramatically reduce patient discomfort and shorten hospital stays as well.

Capabilities include:

  • All aspects of cardiac and thoracic surgery
  • Coronary bypass grafting
  • Cardiac valve replacement/repair
  • Thoracoabdominal and thoracic aneurysm repair
  • Treatment for benign and malignant diseases of the
    lungs, esophagus and chest wall

Our surgeons have developed a multi-disciplinary program for the treatment of lung and esophageal cancers as well as performing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. They also are capable of implanting artificial surgical devices for support of the failing heart. Our surgeons are experienced in minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopic nissen fundoplation for the treatment of heartburn.
