Heart Surgery

When heart surgery is needed, our experienced surgeons, nurses and clinicians are here to take care of you every step of the way. Mercy Fitzgerald is proud to offer world-class heart surgery right in our community through our affiliation with Lourdes Cardiovascular Institute—a team of cardiac surgeons who are fellowship-trained in the most advanced heart surgery techniques. In Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County, people who need heart surgery have access to sophisticated care through Nazareth Hospital’s partnership with St. Mary Heart & Vascular.

Available heart surgery options include:

Coronary Artery Bypass: Bypass surgery reroutes blood around clogged or diseased arteries to improve blood flow and oxygen to the heart.

Valve Surgery: Options include replacement or repair of damaged or scarred heart valves.

Repair of Aortic Aneurysms: An aneurysm occurs when a weak part of the aorta expands or bulges. Aneurysm repair involves replacing the weakened portion of the aorta with a fabric tube, called a graft, allowing blood to flow through that portion of the aorta without creating a bulge.
