Our Team

In addition to offering ground-breaking technology, our surgical program provides patients with the advantage of an on-site multi-disciplinary team of cardiologists, electrophysiologists, interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, advanced practice nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, physical therapists, and social workers.

This team often expands to include immediate care from on-site physicians from every medical specialty required. Our multi-disciplinary approach and expertise has gained us the reputation of being the best-prepared surgical practice to handle procedures that may be complex and/or complicated by underlying illness or age.

Our large volume, consisting of many complex and complicated procedures in all areas, including pediatric and aortic cardiac procedures, assures patients that they are receiving the best care possible from some of the most experienced and expertly skilled surgeons in the world.

Cutting-edge Research

These same surgeons are committed to continually studying and evaluating new methods of surgical treatment and improving surgical outcomes through clinical and laboratory research in such areas as protection of the brain and neurological systems during bypass operations and the future use of stem cells for concomitant procedures in patients with congestive heart failure. Often, patients will benefit from new therapies not readily available at other hospitals.

Part of our commitment to delivering the best patient care is providing individuals with as much quality information regarding an illness and treatment as is required to make them feel comfortable with their options and choices. The Johns Hopkins Hospital has been ranked #1 in the 2009 U. S. News & World Report rankings of American Hospitals. Our Cardiovascular Program has been ranked #3 in the country and will continue to strive to provide the best patient care and most innovative treatment options to our patients and their families.

We hope that the information contained on our Web site meets your needs. If not, we ask that you feel free to contact us to request additional information or advice. You can also make a patient referral.
