Cardiovascular surgery (or Cardiac Surgery) is a surgery on the heart and/or great vessels. The types of surgeons performing this surgery can go by many names in the vernacular: cardiac surgeon, cardiovascular surgeon, heart surgeon. (Just as San Francisco might go by SF, SF Bay Area, or Marin County - but they all are the same or similar places on a map.) Cardiovascular surgery is frequantly done to treat complications of ischemic heart disease (e.g., coronary artery bypass grafting), correct congenital heart disease, or treat valvular heart disease induced by various things including endocarditis. Cardiovascular surgery also includes heart transplant surgery.
How do you identify the best cardiac surgeon for you? All patients are unique, and our team of top Bay Area Cardiovascular Surgeon will create a treatment plan customized to your specific needs. Many patients wonder what are the best questions to ask your cardiovascular surgeon or specialist.

That's one way to get to the best questions to ask your doctor.
