Why Einstein Heart Surgery?

Experienced Physicians

Einstein’s team of board-certified surgeons treat thousands of patients each year for many heart and vascular issues, with a special emphasis on minimally invasive procedures. Their dedication shows. Philadelphia magazine Top Docs honored our team.

Industry-Leading Technology

Einstein’s heart surgery team continually researches and pioneers the use of equipment and procedures that contribute to the best possible outcomes. Our latest innovations include Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), Mitra Clip, Hybrid Ablation Procedure, Fast “Door-to-Balloon Time.”

Customized to Your Needs

When you first come in for an evaluation, you'll meet with one of our expert surgeons, who will work closely with you and your other healthcare providers to develop a personalized treatment plan. In some cases, the best option may be to manage the condition with medications and lifestyle changes. In other cases, the surgeon may recommend a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure or heart surgery for more severe or correctable conditions.
