Spectrum Health is a quaternary hospital offering the most comprehensive surgery and care for a wide range of complex cardiac conditions. Our highly skilled and exemplary cardiothoracic surgeons perform the highest volume of adult open heart surgeries in Michigan leading to a level of experience that translates into better health outcomes for patients.
Our patients are at the center of what we do and why we prioritize remaining on the cutting edge of technology and procedures that can result in better outcomes and faster recoveries. This is why our teams are experienced in both traditional open heart surgery and robotic-assisted surgery. We were 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 also proud to be West Michigan’s transplant center, offering high-level transplant care for heart transplants, lung transplants and ventricular assist devices. Our programs allow local patients to receive these time sensitive and live saving procedures close to home.
