Cardiac surgery is an often unexpected event, with limited time for making important decisions. Asante’s cardiothoracic surgery program has been in existence for more than 35 years and offers a combination of expertise and innovation that’s hard to find outside a big city.
We have a team of four exceptional cardiothoracic surgeons who, along with specially trained cardiac anesthesiologists, work with a skilled team of physicians, operating-room staff, and Coronary Care Unit (CCU) nurses to provide the best clinical outcomes possible. Each of our cardiothoracic surgeons performs more than 100 operations each year, ensuring that all of our patients receive experienced and expert care.
After surgery all of our patients get excellent and compassionate post-operative care from a team of highly experienced CCU nurses, who along with intensivists and cardiologists have cared for thousands of cardiac patients.
Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center has a team of Cardiac Clinical Case Managers who visit with patients both before and after cardiac surgery. They also see patients who have experienced heart failure, angina, myocardial infarction, or coronary artery stenting or who required pacemaker or defibrillator implantation.
