Spectrum Health’s mission is to provide personalized and comprehensive care for a wide range of complex cardiac conditions. Our exemplary and highly experienced cardiothoracic surgeons work together to provide the highest quality cardiac surgery care to the thousands of Michiganders we treat every year. In fact, we perform the highest volume of adult open-heart surgeries in the state.
We see each patient as an individual, which means better care, especially designed for you. We are proud to offer expertise in a full spectrum of cardiothoracic care, including traditional open-heart surgery and robotic-assisted surgery.
Spectrum Health was the first West Michigan hospital to offer da Vinci® cardiac procedures. Robotic assistance allows qualifying patients to have smaller incisions, eliminating the need to split the breastbone. This technique speeds recovery, creates less scarring and allows a faster return to normal activities.
We are West Michigan’s transplant center, offering innovative and the highest quality care for heart transplants, lung transplants and ventricular assist devices. Our programs are critical to the region as they eliminate the hardship faced by families and patients who must travel to other cities for transplant and ventricular assist device surgery. West Michigan residents who need these time-sensitive and advanced procedures can do so close to home.
