Coronary Bypass and Valve Replacement

Coronary Bypass and Valve Replacement

Surgeons at Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center perform cutting-edge surgical repair of blocked arteries and damaged valves.

Coronary Bypass Surgery

During coronary bypass surgery, the heart surgeon uses a blood vessel from a patient’s leg, arm or inner chest to bypass an obstruction in a coronary artery, improving blood flow to the heart. A patient may undergo a single, double, triple or quadruple bypass, depending on the number of arteries that are blocked. Sometimes coronary bypass surgery can be performed with minimally invasive techniques, making only small incisions in the chest, resulting in less risk and trauma and faster recovery.

Heart Valve Repair and Replacement Surgery

Our heart surgeons treat more valve patients than any other hospital in NJ, performing more than 700 valve operations each year. This places our program in the top three percent of all cardiac surgical programs in the United States. We are one of few select medical centers in the United Sates that provide a full range of heart valve treatment options, including the ability to repair both aortic and mitral valves through a one-inch incision in the groin as opposed to the standard 15-inch incision down the chest.

Our state-of-the-art facility features two specially designed hybrid operating suites that can be used for both complex catheter procedures and conventional open-heart and vascular surgical procedures. Minimally invasive surgery enables patients to undergo advanced cardiovascular repair with shorter recovery times.

Research in Valve Repair

Our specialists are frequently selected to participate in groundbreaking clinical trials that evaluate next generation procedures and techniques for valve repair. Our expertise is widely sought, and we now train surgeons and interventional cardiologists across the United States and South America.
