I am very excited to announce that WakeMed Heart & Vascular in Raleigh, North Carolina, just became the newest heart valve surgery center to join us at HeartValveSurgery.com.
For decades, WakeMed Heart & Vascular has been a leader in cardiovascular surgical care – well-known for its compassionate, personalized care matched with a relentless focus on quality and exceptional outcomes.
Specific to heart valve disease, WakeMed Heart & Vascular has developed innovative and minimally-invasive techniques to treat all forms of valvular defects and related cardiac conditions such as atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease and aortic aneurysms.
“We’re excited to join forces with the HeartValveSurgery.com community,” states Dr. Judson Williams, a leading cardiac surgeon at WakeMed and executive medical director of WakeMed Heart & Vascular. “Together, we can really help educate and empower patients with heart valve disease.”
Superior Patient Outcomes with ERAS Cardiac
Dr. Williams was responsible for introducing the first Enhanced Recovery After Cardiac Surgery (ERAS Cardiac) program at WakeMed Heart & Vascular. ERAS Cardiac is an evidence-based, interdisciplinary process for helping patients recover from heart surgery. Watch this video to learn more about ERAS Cardiac.
