Heart surgery in Riverside, California

Riverside Community Hospital is proud to offer patients comprehensive cardiovascular surgical services by cardiologists in the Inland Empire. The cardiovascular surgeons affiliated with our hospital have the expertise to care for our patients and our community. Skilled in both “on-pump” and “off-pump” procedures, we are proud to have some of the best outcomes in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery in Southern California.

Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG)

CABG is an invasive surgical procedure, which will allow your cardiovascular surgeon to bypass, or graft, a blockage you have in one of your coronary arteries with a blood vessel from another part of your body. The vessels chosen by the surgeon to use as the bypass graft will depend on what you have available and could come from your leg, your arm or an artery from your chest wall.

Heart valve surgery

Valve surgery is an invasive surgical procedure that will allow your cardiovascular surgeon to repair any of your four heart valves. These valves—the tricuspid valve, pulmonary valve, aortic valve and mitral valve—keep blood flowing in the correct direction.

Other cardiovascular surgeries

In addition to coronary artery bypass surgery and heart valve surgery, the cardiovascular surgeons at Riverside Community Hospital’s cardiology department also specialize in performing multiple other cardiac procedures, including:

  • Combination bypass and valve surgery
  • Aortic aneurysm repair
  • Procedures to treat atrial fibrillation
