Heart Procedures and Surgery
When you require a cardiac procedure, you want to know that you will be treated with the latest and best technology, in the hands of skilled and experienced surgeons and cardiologists.
Cape Cod Healthcare provides a comprehensive program, covering cardiac surgery and interventional cardiology services.
Our highly skilled, board-certified cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons have performed thousands of surgeries, including procedures typically offered only at large academic institutions.
As one of only two community hospitals in Massachusetts licensed to perform cardiac surgery, Cape Cod Hospital has served patients and their families on the Cape since 2002. Recognized for exceptional care by the American College of Cardiology, the cardiovascular surgical program is affiliated with Brigham and Women’s Hospital, an internationally recognized cardiovascular surgery center in Boston, bringing continual advances to the Cape.
