The Division of Cardiac Surgery at Western is comprised of seven faculty members who perform an annual total of 1400 adult cardiac surgical procedures at the University Hospital, as well as innovative clinical research.
Our division is a national leader in mitral valve repair surgery, aortic surgery, transplantation, and minimally invasive/robotic cardiac surgery.
The Division of Cardiac Surgery is active in collaborative research and members are very productive academically via peer-reviewed research grants, presentations at national and international meetings and the publication of full-length papers in leading journals. Members of our division conduct pre-clinical research in CSTAR (Canadian Surgical Technologies and Advanced Robotics), within the Lindros Legacy Pavilion at the University Hospital.
