Cardiac Surgery

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death globally, with an estimated death rate of 17.9 million per year. The most represented cardiovascular disease is the ischemic heart disease which is responsible of heart attacks if not treated. This is followed by stroke, peripheral arterial disease, and cardiac valve disease (mainly aortic).

Some behavioural risk factors such as smoking, obesity, and physical inactivity, can be corrected, however at some point it is necessary the intervention of specialist doctors to help in situations that can easily lead to a remarkably reduced quality of life or even death.

At the GMI Department of Cardiac Surgery we provide expert care in our state-of-the-art facilities when it comes to surgically treat cardiac related pathologies. A dedicated team of internationally experienced specialists will guide each patient through their entire medical journey, from their diagnostic work-up to their treatment and post-treatment care. Our mission goes beyond the simple treatment of a pathology, as we aim to create the best possible outcome for each of our patients.

Operation Room

We have a state-of-the-art cardiac operation theater with a hybrid room, which allows us to intervene both with traditional and minimally invasive approach, depending on the cardiac pathology and the need of the patient.

Our Services

We offer a vast selection of services and tailored solutions for cardiac related pathologies. Starting from the diagnosis and evaluation of the heart condition through the most advanced cardiac MRI imaging available in Europe, we can gather detailed imaging and data to suggest the best achievable surgical solution as a post-diagnostic treatment.

We offer multiple options for treatment which include:

  • Complete revascularization with coronary bypass surgery
  • Aortic valve replacement including minimally invasive techniques
  • Thoracic aorta surgery (root, ascending, arch)
  • Mitral valve repair
  • Mitral valve replacement
  • Repair of congenital heart structure defects in adults

Our latest generation cardiopulmonary bypass machines (CPB) use a smaller circuit (mini-bypass system) that provides a better and faster recovery for patients after cardiac surgery minimizing the risk of needing additional blood transfusions.

Post-operative care

Cardiac surgery procedures are complex, and the average hospital stay is 5 to 7 days post-surgery. During this time excellence in post-operative and rehabilitation care is paramount. Our mission is to provide outstanding surgical results and prompt recovery. We have a dedicated team of physiotherapists and health care providers who will follow and guide each patient during their recovery. This will allow a smooth transition from the day of admission until the day of discharge. Our team will also schedule regular follow-up appointments in our Outpatient Clinic to ensure each patient’s recovery and quality of life.
