Heart, Lung and Vascular Surgery

Choose a heart and lung surgeon that can deliver outstanding results.

A doctor who specializes in cardiothoracic surgery performs operations on the heart, lungs, valves and other organs in the chest.

Our Des Moines heart surgeons perform complex heart surgery with outstanding results and are on the leading edge of very advanced treatment options. Many heart surgery procedures can now be accomplished using minimally-invasive techniques.

UnityPoint Health - Des Moines strives to provide each patient and family member with education, support, and outstanding medical care, from your first visit to your discharge home. 

Our cardiothoracic surgeons operate at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in downtown Des Moines.  They are supported by a full team of cardiologists and vascular surgeons. 

Procedures include:

  • CABG (coronary artery bypass surgery)
  • Atrial septal defect repair
  • Aortic dissection repair
  • Heart valve surgery (repair and replacement)
  • TAVR  (transcatheter aortic valve replacement)
  • MAZE procedure to treat atrial fibrillation
  • Complex surgery for patients who have undergone one or more previous cardiac operations
  • Lung surgery
  • Thymectomy
  • Minimally invasive surgery

Additional information about our team of cardiothoracic surgeons can be found on The Iowa Clinic's website.

Vascular Surgery

At the Methodist Vascular Center, our team of experienced physicians is devoted to providing state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for patients with vascular diseases.

We diagnose and treat the full range of non-cardiac vascular disorders, those conditions that involve the arteries and veins outside of the heart. Treatments involve proven state-of-the-art therapies, leading-edge minimally invasive surgery and, when appropriate, exciting new clinical trials.

Our surgeons are board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of General Vascular Surgery. Additional information about our team of vascular surgeons can be found on The Iowa Clinic's website.
