St. Vincent Heart Center heart surgeons do more heart surgeries (open heart and minimally invasive) than any other heart care system in Indiana. Our cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists are nationally (and in many cases internationally) recognized for their expertise. These heart surgeons are pioneering safer methods for repairing the many parts of the heart and vital arteries. Our purpose is to restore heart function and quality of life, and we do that with a Caring Spirit.
Our heart surgeons are actively involved in local and national clinical research efforts, which benefit our patients immediately. Learn more about activeclinical trials.
Since 2012, our Interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons have been on the leading edge of transformative heart surgery. That means smaller incision and less invasive surgical tools using robot-assisted surgical techniques (the daVinci® technology). Since 2012, these surgeons have been replacing the heart’s mitral valve without heart surgery. To learn more, see Dr. James Hermiller’s video about this transformative procedure and how patients have quicker recovery and very strong outcomes.
