Inova Cardiac Surgery specializes in surgeries performed on the internal structures of the heart or great vessels, most often to treat complications resulting from heart disease or to correct heart defects. They also repair and replace structures of the heart (such as valves) or implant medical devices to support heart function. In cases of advanced heart failure, they can even replace a damaged heart with a healthy one through transplantation.

We have surgeons for both pediatric and adult patients.

Our board-certified and fellowship-trained surgeons have performed thousands of procedures and pioneered many new treatment and recovery approaches with results rarely matched nationwide. Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, where we perform our surgical work, is a high volume cardiac center that consistently receives the highest ratings for quality and superior patient outcomes.

Our commitment to your care is our top priority. Your care team consists of a dedicated staff of expert surgeons and nurse practitioners who will play an integral role in your care. Together we promise to provide patients a level of care equivalent to what we would wish for our own family members.
