Cardiovascular surgeons at OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital perform more heart surgeries than any other system in central Ohio, including a high volume and variety of complex procedures, such as leading edge endovascular treatments.

Riverside Methodist has seen tremendous growth in valve procedures, most notably, mitral and aortic valve repair in lieu of replacement. Our aggressive approach to preserving the natural valve provides significant advantages:

  • a lower rate of infection
  • reduced need for blood thinners
  • preserved heart muscle strength

These advantages lead to far superior initial and long-term results when compared to replacement
