Heart Surgery

If your doctor recommends heart surgery, choose Owensboro Health for your procedure. You’ll benefit from board-certified cardiac surgeons, minimally invasive options and advanced technology that improve your outcome.

Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery

You’ll feel more comfortable after vascular surgery and go home sooner if you qualify for a minimally invasive technique that requires only small incisions.

Endovascular Procedures

During Endovascular procedures, your surgeon uses real-time X-ray images to guide a thin tube called a catheter and tiny surgical tools into your blood vessels for procedures such as angioplasty, embolization and atherectomy (plaque removal from arteries). Our Artis zeego® robotic imaging equipment quickly provides complete, accurate images of your blood vessels and exposes you to less radiation. That means the technology helps you stay safe and enjoy the best possible outcome of your procedure.

Cardiovascular Care

You’ll be in expert hands if you get one of these procedures at Owensboro Health:

  • Aneurysm Repair
  • Atrial Myxoma Removal
  • Carotid Artery Surgery

Beating Heart (Off-Pump) Bypass

If you need coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, your Owensboro Health surgeon will likely use a technique that lets your heart keep beating during the procedure. You won’t need a heart-lung machine, so you’ll experience benefits such as:

  • Fewer days in the hospital
  • A shorter recovery
  • Less damage to blood cells
  • Lower risk of complications
