Cardiac Surgery

We’ve performed more than 250 heart transplants since Hartford Hospital, now part of the Heart & Vascular Institute, in 1984 became the first Connecticut hospital to perform a successful transplant. You can also trust our experience in mitral valve repair, coronary bypass procedures and surgical ablation to treat atrial fibrillation.

Clinical Cardiology

A cardiologist is your first stop for a specialist who treats a full range of heart issues, from aortic disease to a heart attack. Dizziness, shortness of breath or palpitations? Each can be a sign of heart disease. Our cardiologists treat common heart problems like angina, also help stabilize high cholesterol and high blood pressure. We also perform the most cardiac surgeries in Connecticut.

Electrophysiology

The average human heart beats about 100,000 times a day, pumping almost 2,000 gallons of blood through the body. We treat irregularities of the electrical system that controls the heart rate and rhythm, whether with a nonsurgical procedure (catheter ablation), heat ablation or cryoablation. We also implant, program and monitor pacemakers, cardioverter defibrillators and loop recorders.
