Pioneering Heart Surgery at Rose Medical Center

The Most Experienced Surgical Team to Guide You Through Treatment

Many cardiovascular conditions can be treated with less-invasive procedures, but from time to time, a more aggressive, surgical approach is necessary.

Jason-Sperling-Richard-Parker-DenverThe specific and evolving nature of open heart surgery requires a precise level of expertise from the medical team.
