Mayo Clinic's approach

  • Teamwork. Mayo Clinic doctors in many areas — including heart disease specialists (cardiologists) and heart surgeons (cardiovascular surgeons) — work together as a multidisciplinary team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care.
  • Experience. Mayo Clinic heart surgeons (cardiovascular surgeons) have extensive experience performing coronary artery bypass.
  • Individualized care. Mayo Clinic doctors work with you to provide exactly the care you need. The Mayo Clinic staff works with you, your primary care doctor and local doctors who have training in heart conditions (cardiologists) to assist with a smooth, full recovery after coronary bypass surgery.
