Cardiac Surgery


There are a variety of surgical procedures doctors can use to treat heart disease. More extensive cases of heart disease require heart surgery to restore normal functionality to the heart.


Dominican Hospital has received a three-star rating for the quality of its coronary artery bypass surgery from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS), the highest designation possible. 

Procedures Dominican Hospital performs:

  • Coronary bypass surgery
  • Open-heart surgery
  • Valve repairs and replacements
  • Aortic repairs and dissections
  • Aneurysm procedures
  • Chest or lung procedures

Under the leadership of medical director, Dr. Bilal Shafi from Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF), a skilled cardiac surgical team provides Dominican Hospital with around-the-clock cardiac coverage. Our dedicated cardiac surgery suite ensures that emergency, as well as routine procedures can always be accommodated. Dominican collaborates with the Bay area Palo Alto Medical Foundation physician providers to provide expert cardiac surgery services.

At Dominican Hospital, our goal is to offer you the most effective care using the least invasive procedure possible. Our cardiac team specializes in advanced techniques that improve patient outcomes, reduce recovery time, and shorten hospital stays. Dominican is dedicated to surgical best practice and compares all outcomes with data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. This publically reported data allows patients to compare Dominican with other top performing hospitals.
