A Specialist for Every Part of Your Heart
Whether it’s getting you back in rhythm or clearing the way to a heart-healthy lifestyle, specialists at Jefferson deploy some of the most innovative techniques to get your heart where it needs to be.
With more than 90 cardiac, pulmonary and vascular specialists, we have the expertise to manage coronary heart disease, heart failure, arrhythmia, heart valve disease, heart muscle disease, heart defects and peripheral vascular disease.
Our Core Programs
Angioplasty –Jefferson physicians helped pioneer the use of minimally invasive angioplasty procedures that lead to fewer complications and open access to treatments that were previously not available to patients deemed “high risk.”
Arrhythmia – Our physicians are equipped with the latest technologies to treat disorders from common arrhythmias, like atrial fibrillation, to more life-threatening arrhythmias like ventricular fibrillation. Jefferson is one of the first hospitals in the U.S. to offer advanced implantable cardioverterdefibrillators that allow physicians to monitor a patient remotely over the internet.
Heart Failure and Transplantation – As both an academic medical center and a regional referral center, Jefferson is equipped to care for patients with advanced valvular and coronary artery disease. We are also one of a select group of cardiac centers in the region whose surgeons routinely use left ventricular assist devices to help maintain the failing heart.
