Open Heart Surgery

Many different types of open heart surgeries may be performed on the heart. The most common are coronary bypass surgery, valve replacement / repair or aneurysm repairs. All of these surgeries involve a mid-chest incision and exposure of the heart. The specialized physician who performs this operation is called a Cardiothorasic surgeon.
