SurgeryHeart surgery patient and team

Some heart conditions require surgery. This can include windowmakers heart attacks and afib chest pain. Enloe Medical Center’s trusted heart surgeons perform a wide-range of cardiothoracic procedures. These include:

  • Coronary artery bypass: Coronary arteries are the vessels that carry blood to your heart muscle. If one of these is blocked, blood can’t get to your heart, causing damage. Coronary artery bypass surgery makes a path for blood to flow to your heart by going around the blockage. This procedure does not cure heart disease or blockages, but it can relieve your symptoms.
  • Endoscopic vein removals: During this procedure, your care team will take healthy veins from a small incision and reuse them as new heart vessels.
  • Minimally invasive endovascular stenting: You can get aneurysms (dilations or bulges) in your blood vessels. These can burst, causing a stroke or bleeding. If you develop one of these, your care team may perform this procedure. During it, your heart surgeon will place stents, small metal coils or mesh tubes, to reinforce your artery.
  • Valve repair: If one or more of your heart valves is not working properly, your care team may perform a valve repair. Your care team can take one of several approaches. These can range from simple annuloplasty to complex reconstruction, depending on your condition.
  • Valve replacement: During this procedure, your doctor will use prosthetic tissue and/or devices to replace your unhealthy valves.Heart surgery

Bloodless Surgery

At Enloe Medical Center, we respect your beliefs about blood transfusions. We understand that for some patients, having a blood transfusion is not an option.

That’s why you can receive medical and surgical care without receiving blood or blood products. Talk to your care team about this if this is a concern.
