Advanced Heart and Vascular Treatment at Medical City Dallas
Medical City Heart offers the most comprehensive heart and vascular treatment in the entire Southwest, including:
- A full range of cardiothoracic surgical procedures.
Since 1985, we have performed cardiac surgery for more than 11,000 patients.
- Coronary artery bypass
We’re one of the first hospitals in the United States to perform beating-heart bypass surgery and we have extensive experience in complex coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures.
- Aortic and mitral valve
Since 1986, we have performed more than 2,244 valve repairs and replacements. And since 2003, we’ve successfully completed 338 balloon aortic valvuloplasties (BAV).
- Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
The Dallas Valve Institute at Medical City is the only center in the Southwest participating in the breakthrough PARTNER clinical trial, which uses minimally invasive techniques to implant an aortic stent valve to treat critical aortic stenosis. And we’re the first center in the United States to perform the transapical procedure.
- Thoracic aortic aneurysm
We detect thoracic aortic disease earlier, enabling doctors to take a proactive approach to treatment.
- Minimally invasive lung and esophageal surgery
Medical City Heart is the first center in North Texas to offer these laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgeries.
- Heart failure support devices
Since 1996, we’ve implanted 202 devices as both bridge and destination therapies. We’ve also participated in trials for the HeartMate II, DuraHeart, TandemHeart, Impella 2.5 and other left ventricular assist devices.
- Heart transplantation
Medical City Heart is the largest transplant facility in North Texas and consistently ranked in the top 15 nationally in heart transplant volumes. Our program outcomes significantly exceed UNOS benchmarks for patient survival rates and grafts.
- Medical City is the only hospital in North Texas with pediatric and adult heart specialists on one campus. These specialists are among the best in the nation and provide continuity of care for congenital heart patients of all ages.
