Leader in Cardiovascular Surgery
The New England Heart & Vascular Institute at CMC is a leader in cardiac surgery. Our board-certified surgeons specialize in thoracic and vascular surgery and have performed more than 23,000 open-heart procedures.
CMC was the site of the first beating heart surgery in northern New England in 1996. Now, we are one of the busiest beating heart surgery centers in New England, with more than 90 percent of all heart bypass surgeries performed on a patient’s beating heart, without using heart-lung machine. Beating heart surgery can lead to lower risk of heart attack and stroke for patients.
In addition to providing you with highly-skilled surgical care, our team will walk you through a detailed plan for your treatment to help ease anxiety, increase understanding and build confidence for you and your family.
