About Heart Institute of Colorado: Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery

The state’s most comprehensive heart surgery program is right here in Denver. We offer you unmatched quality in care and the peace of mind that you are receiving the best surgical options available.

We are leaders in the treatment of heart attacks and heart surgeries in Denver and all of Colorado and perform the most heart surgeries year after year in the Denver metro area.

Excellent and compassionate care

In 2015, our practice earned a three-star ranking for complex heart surgeries from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. We offer a broad range of heart and thoracic surgery services, from diagnosis and treatment, to recovery and rehabilitation after a heart attack, to secondary prevention of your disease process. Since performing the first heart surgery at Saint Joseph Hospital in 1974, our surgeons have dedicated themselves to being experts in traditional cardiac surgery techniques, and to practice at the forefront of emerging technologies such as minimally invasive heart surgery and atrial fibrillation ablation techniques.

Upon diagnosis by our physicians, you will be thoroughly evaluated so that we may present you with the best treatment option for your condition. Our experiences with complex cardiothoracic diagnoses and knowledge of the latest advances and techniques in heart and chest surgery have helped to establish us as a major referral center for cardiac patients from Colorado and across the country.
