CT Scanservice
Each year, we perform more than 700 cardiovascular and thoracic surgeries. Our surgeons offer the best possible outcomes for the most challenging surgical cases and provide the complete spectrum of cardiovascular surgical care, including minimally invasive options and advanced hybrid surgeries.

Together with our interventional cardiologists, our cardiovascular surgeons offer dually-performed procedures, such as robotic CABG followed by stenting, in our hybrid operating room and participate in percutaneous heart valve therapy cases.

Experience Counts

Studies show that centers performing high volumes of cardiovascular procedures have the best patient outcomes and lowest mortality rates. PinnacleHealth is an outstanding example of this fact. Since performing the first heart bypass surgery in the region in 1956, PinnacleHealth has been a pioneer in cardiovascular surgery. We continue to make advancements in the field each day.

At the national level, PinnacleHealth has also received the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) highest rating for cardiovascular surgery. This accolade is the coveted 3-Star highest quality designation for heart bypass surgery outcomes from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.

Mubashir Mumtaz, MD, our chief of cardiothoracic surgery, is in the top 5 percent in the state of all surgeons’ volumes. He is also the only surgeon in Pennsylvania to achieve a combined inpatient and 30-day mortality rated as “better than expected” for total valve surgery.
