The Heart Institute is a national leader in the treatment of complex heart disease and heart transplantation. We specialize in the complete correction of heart defects in newborns and surgical management of complex single ventricle cardiac defects. About 25 percent of our cardiac surgery patients are less than a month old, and 60 percent are under a year of age. We perform nearly 400 cardiac operations a year, with about 250 of those being open-heart surgeries.
