The heart team at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center performs surgical treatments for a wide range of conditions of the heart and lungs. Many advanced procedures are often included under the umbrella of “heart surgery.” We’re proud to offer a wide variety of surgical services here in our community, helping to care for our patients close to home.
From minimally invasive options to heart bypass surgeries, our dedicated cardiothoracic surgeon is available 24-hours a day to evaluate and treat dangers to your heart health. Our surgical services include:
We’re often able to perform bypass surgery “off pump” — a procedure in which the heart is not stopped and the patient is not placed on a cardiopulmonary bypass machine (or heart-lung machine). This technique, under the skilled hands of our surgeon, decreases the patient’s time under anesthesia and, often, the length of their hospital stay. The procedure also reduces the risk of stroke, renal failure, and bleeding.
