Mission, Vision, and Values
If you’re in need of heart care, a number of cardiovascular treatments can help your heart function better and relieve symptoms.
Cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons at Dignity Health offer personalized heart care — from atrial fibrillation treatment to open heart surgery. Take our online heart risk assessment, or Find a Doctor in the Bay Area.
Cardiovascular treatments can help reduce heart disease symptoms and improve your quality of life. Common treatments include:
Most heart disease treatments are performed in a hospital or surgical center. You may receive either light sedation or general anesthesia. Major heart surgery requires staying several nights in a special cardiac intensive care unit.
Make sure to discuss the risks and benefits of all heart care with your cardiologist. Ask how you can reduce your risk of complications.
Minimally invasive heart disease treatments, such as catheter ablation, require less recovery time than major procedures, such as open heart surgery. Your doctor will give you specific instructions about your recovery. Discuss heart surgery well in advance of your procedure so you can plan ahead to take time off of work, if necessary.
At Dignity Health, we offer life-saving heart surgery and treatments. Once your heart is working better, you’ll feel more energetic than you have in a long time.
Dignity Health offers pacemakers, open heart surgery, and other heart disease treatments in the Bay Area, including in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and Redwood City.
