The physicians at Maine Heart Surgical Associates are skilled cardiovascular surgeons who specialize in heart, lung esophageal, and vascular surgery. Before you read any further to learn about your surgery, we hope you will consider the thousands of people that we have helped. In so many cases, surgery changed their lives for the better and made their lives more livable. Any surgery, especially major surgery involving the heart, lungs or esophagus, comes with its own set of risks. The great majority of patients, however, have gone on to enjoy life fully once again – the family birthdays, the holidays, the sunny days and the rainy ones. For that reason we are dedicated to making Maine Heart Surgical Associates a source of healing and hope.
