The Adult Cardiac Surgery Division continues to maintain strong clinical programs in the traditional areas of myocardial revascularization as well as cardiac valve repair and replacement. In collaboration with the Division of Cardiology, we have continued to develop new methods of providing efficient cost-effective care to our patients. In addition, expansion of our inpatient facilities to include additional operating room time and ICU beds is occurring with the opening of the Cardiovascular Center.

The University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center, incorporating all of the clinical and research faculty involved in adult and pediatric cardiovascular care opened for use in June 2007.

The members of the Department of Cardiac Surgery look forward to even greater opportunities for growth and development in the future. We remain committed to delivering outstanding care to our patients, the scientific advancement and pursuit of new knowledge in our specialty, and the education of our residents.
