Since 2009, the Sydney Heart Team has been successfully treating some of the country’s most challenging heart patients.
The Sydney Heart Team are able to assess patients who are most suitable for having traditional open-heart surgical techniques or transcatheter techniques. It’s why both of the outcomes we have with open heart surgery and transcatheter heart surgery are extremely positive.
Bringing together doctors from different specialties, the Sydney Heart Team is able to comprehensively assess the entire spectrum of a patient’s health condition and accurately decide on the best treatment options as an interdisciplinary team. This interdisciplinary team approach includes cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons as well as imaging specialists, geriatricians, anaesthetists, intensivists and clinical nurse consultants. By collaborating and working across disciplines such as interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery, the Sydney Heart Team is able to provide patients with the best solution and outcome.
