Cardiac Surgery

Iowa Heart Center's surgeons are leaders, nationally, in providing advanced surgical techniques for Iowa patients and their families. The center's surgeons performed Iowa's first heart transplant in 1980 and hold two patents on innovative devices developed here. The Center's surgeons are also available for phone consultation.

Our surgeons routinely perform heart valve replacement and repair surgery, the Ross Procedure, robotic surgery, transmyocardial revascularization, minimally invasive heart surgery and coronary artery bypass grafts.
