Central Ohio's premier cardiac surgery program

Our cardiac surgery program is the only program in central Ohio nationally ranked in cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report and was ranked as "high performing" in heart failure aortic valve surgery and heart bypass surgery. The Division has a tradition of excellence and innovation in patient care, education and research.

We specialize in the treatment of the most complex cardiac surgery patients through complex reoperations, coronary artery bypass surgery, heart valve surgery, aortic surgery, endovascular and transcatheter procedures, heart and lung transplantation, mechanical circulatory support and ECMO. Our faculty are leaders in the education and training of the next generation of cardiac surgeons attracting the "best and the brightest" to our Thoracic Fellowship Program. Our researchers focus on the development of new and less invasive therapies to prevent and treat heart disease.
