St Vincent’s Campus, which comprises of St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, St Vincent’s Private Hospital Sydney and St Vincent’s Clinic, has an international reputation for heart surgery. This reputation has been built on our robust heart and lung transplantation program, artificial heart program and the pioneering of new technologies in the management of heart disease.
The cardiac department took the lead in utilising minimally invasive valve surgery and has become a leading centre for trialing new devices. The first minimally invasive surgery for mitral valve, aortic valve and coronary artery bypass grafting was performed here in Australia at St Vincent’s more than a decade ago.
Following training overseas in catheter based valve procedures our surgeons work together with our interventional cardiologists, together performing procedures such as mitral and aortic valve repair and replacement, closure of atrial septal defects, closure of left atrial appendage and safe removal of old pacemaker leads.
In 2008, we introduced the first Trans Catheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) program in Sydney. We are now providing new possibilities in the treatment of advanced heart disease either in performing major surgery via a minimally invasive method, or in offering new treatment options where conventional surgery is no longer possible.
