Heart Surgery Hospitals and Programs in New Jersey

Integrated Cardiothoracic Surgical Program

Our premier cardiac services provide immediate access to highly sophisticated heart surgery. Members of our surgical team are recognized as national leaders in the field of cardiothoracic surgery and are advancing the latest minimally invasive techniques that offer patients faster recovery and fewer complications. The integrated cardiac surgical program located at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Saint Barnabas Medical Center has seen a dramatic increase in volume of cases in recent years -- making us the leader in the State of New Jersey in performing beating heart surgeries. The center’s reputation for excellence has also made it an educational resource for cardiac surgeons throughout the northeast.

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is one of the fastest growing innovations in the field of cardiothoracic surgery. Our program was the first in New Jersey to use a robotic surgery system for atrial septal defect closure and valve repair. The depth of our robotic surgery services are demonstrated by Newark Beth Israel Medical Center’s designation as the only facility in the Eastern U.S. and is one of only three nationwide to offer training on the model “S” da Vinci®Surgical Robot System.

Beating Heart Surgery

The most common beating heart surgery performed at the Barnabas Health Heart Centers is coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). The technique avoids the use of the heart-lung machine and its known risks. During beating heart surgery the heart is allowed to continue to beat while bypass grafts are constructed.
