We Treat Your Heart Like it‘s Ours

– Dr. Steve Xydas, Chief of Cardiac Surgery

At Mount Sinai Medical Center, we believe that each patient is unique and deserves to receive medical care that precisely meets his or her specific needs. Our cardiac surgeons are highly skilled in a wide range of procedures, including minimally invasive valve repair and replacement techniques that yield better results and faster recuperation. In fact, our cardiac surgery patients experience the shortest recovery time on average than patients at other Miami-Dade hospitals. We have the training, expertise and experience to offer our patients the right care, at the right time, for the right outcome. That is why we can claim the best cardiac surgery survival rate in Florida.*
