Sarasota Memorial’s nationally recognized, highly experienced Cardiac Surgery team has performed thousands of minimally invasive and robotic procedures and has some of the nation’s best clinical outcomes on even the most challenging cases. Our surgeons may be able to find a better, less invasive way to help you.

Have you been prescribed open-heart surgery, or diagnosed with any of these cardiovascular conditions:

  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Mitral Valve Prolapse
  • Aortic Aneurysm
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Carotid Disease
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)
  • Conditions requiring valve repair or valve replacement

If so, seek a second opinion before agreeing to a course of treatment. Second-opinion consults can resolve lingering doubts and perhaps open the door to alternative solutions. An informed decision is the best decision.
