Cardiac Surgery section takes pride in the rich tradition of excellence and pioneering achievements that earned us the position of being the top cardiac and thoracic programs in the region. We also pride ourselves for being the first private hospital to perform adult human heart transplant in the kingdom, and for developing the first integrated platform for minimally invasive heart surgeries. Our long and distinguished legacy dates back to the late 1980s.
The cardiac surgical service is comprised of the following:
Adult cardiac surgery: internationally renowned for surgical leadership and expertise in the operative treatment of coronary artery disease and the treatment of structural heart disease. Our operative treatment of valvular heart disease utilizes valve repair and valve preservation as well as valve replacement by standard or minimally invasive approaches. We are a leader in clinical treatment and research on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) as well as off-pump and minimally invasive coronary artery and hybrid bypass surgery. The surgical procedures use state-of-the-art techniques for the treatment of heart diseases and thoracic aorta, and a full spectrum of surgeries is offered.
Pediatric cardiac surgery: one of the largest programs among private hospitals in the country providing specialized pediatric cardiovascular surgery and acclaimed for its contributions to improving survival from otherwise lethal cardiac malformations.
