Cardiothoracic Surgery and Cardiovascular Surgery

Choosing a physician for your cardiac care is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

Should you go to a medical center with comprehensive services or an academic, research-oriented institution that advances the understanding of cardiac disease? Or, perhaps you'd prefer to find you doctor in a smaller, community hospital, close to home who promises more comfort, caring and personal service.

How about a practice that provides all that and more?

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Heart Center at Suburban Hospital brings the clinical and scientific excellence of two renowned medical institutions to a conveniently located community-based cardiac program. Through collaboration with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health and Johns Hopkins Medicine, patients now have easy access to advanced cardiovascular treatments available in very few medical centers.

In addition to state-of-the-art cardiac surgery and angioplasty, the NIH Heart Center at Suburban Hospital provides training for the next generation of cardiac surgeons and cardiologists, and, through ground-breaking research, contributes to improvements in the treatment of cardiac disease worldwide. The NIH Heart Center also complements a broad range of existing cardiac programs at Suburban Hospital-from emergency/trauma care to state-of-the-art cardiac diagnostics and rehabilitation. Over the years these programs, have helped many thousands of patients recover from heart disease.
