In contrast to other programs in the area, our surgeons perform a substantially larger proportion of complex procedures such as multivalve repair, aneurysm/aortic dissection repair, and endovascular
thoracic aneurysm graft (TAG) repair. Our reputation for performing complex surgical procedures is a result of the unified team approach developed at the Medical Center to allow for expert care to be delivered to every patient regardless of the complexity of the problem.
A leader in mitral valve repair, a technique that avoids the potential problems associated with the implantation of an artificial valve, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has made this approach available to over 90% of patients with mitral insufficiency (leaking mitral valve).
With a highly motivated and accomplished team, Englewood Hospital’s program has emerged as the area’s most comprehensive and successful Cardiac Surgery unit. The experience and achievement of our surgical team, which has performed thousands of procedures together over many years, give patients the best chance for a successful surgical outcome.
Excellence in Action:
- Englewood Hospital received the HealthGrades® 5-star rating for Coronary Bypass Surgery, 2010-2011.
- According to the latest New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services Cardiac Surgery Report, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center had no Isolated Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery mortalities during the year for which the data was collected (2007). This is the fourth consecutive cardiac surgery report in which Englewood Hospital achieved 0% mortality—a perfect record.
- As a marker of quality, patients operated on at Englewood Hospital have a substantially shorter length of stay as compared to patients operated on at other programs throughout the state.
- Approximately 80% of cardiac surgeries at Englewood Hospital are performed transfusion-free. Many other well-known institutions seek our expertise in bloodless surgery.
