At The Christ Hospital it is a most exciting time for heart care. Never before have so many therapies been available to patients, including novel treatments for aortic aneurysms, minimally invasive mitral valve procedures and more. According to Dr. Geoff Answini, surgical director and thoracic & cardiac surgeon specialist at Christ, the hospital offers the full gamut of cardiac surgery – from coronary bypass, aortic and mitral valve surgeries to complex repeat open-heart surgeries as well as mechanical assist devices for heart failure patients. The Christ Hospital also offers a broad selection of treatments for thoracic aortic disease, including aneurysms involving the aortic root, ascending aorta, aortic arch and descending thoracic and abdominal aneurysms, as well as aortic dissections.
