The implementation of RMH's Cardiothoracic Surgery program has expanded the scope of coronary procedure options to include coronary artery bypass, heart valve replacement, and aortic surgery. Your cardiologist, in consultation with our cardiothoracic surgeons, will determine if you are a candidate for cardiac surgery based on:
- Your specific anatomy.
- The location and severity of blockages.
- The need for valve repair or replacement based on degree of malfunction.
The cardiothoracic team also provides all non-heart-related surgeries within the thoracic (chest) cavity. This includes surgery performed on the lungs, esophagus, diaphragm and chest wall.
Our cardiothoracic surgery team is supported by the surgeons of Cardiac & Thoracic Surgical Associates, Ltd. (CTSA), a cardiothoracic group practice in Richmond, Va. RMH and the Harrisonburg community are never without a cardiothoracic surgeon.
