At Ascension St. Vincent Heart Center, we strive to achieve extraordinary outcomes. We understand the importance of comparing our results with other heart and vascular programs across the country.

The Ascension St. Vincent Medical Group cardiovascular doctors have been part of the Indianapolis community for more than 100 years. In that time, Ascension St. Vincent has developed a comprehensive heart and vascular care system for children and adults. Our heart and vascular care teams include national and internationally renowned cardiovascular specialists. That means we attract cardiac and vascular pioneers, heart doctors who are at the top of their game.

These men and women deliver a high level of cardiovascular care at both the Indianapolis Heart Center locations, and nearly 30 Heart Care Clinics at Ascension St. Vincent locations throughout Indiana.

We are leaders in cardiovascular clinical trials. Many proven advanced heart care treatments are provided at the Heart Center because of this involvement.

Ascension St. Vincent Heart Center heart surgeons do more heart surgeries (open heart and minimally invasive) than any other heart care system in Indiana. Our cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists are nationally (and in many cases internationally) recognized for their experience. These heart surgeons are pioneering safer methods for repairing the many parts of the heart and vital arteries. Our purpose is to restore heart function and quality of life, and we do that with a Caring Spirit.

Our heart surgeons are actively involved in local and national clinical research efforts, which benefit our patients immediately.

Since 2012, our interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons have been on the leading edge of transformative heart surgery. Minimally invasive procedures include smaller incisions and less invasive surgical tools using robot-assisted surgical techniques (the daVinci® technology). Since 2012, these surgeons have been replacing the heart’s mitral valve without open-heart surgery.

Ascension St. Vincent Heart Care using minimally invasive heart surgery techniques, includes:

  • Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG)
  • Maze procedures to prevent erratic electrical signals
  • Mitral valve surgery
  • Cardiothoracic aortic aneurysm repair
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
  • Transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR)
  • Valve repair and replacement
  • Endoscopic vein harvesting
  • Transmyocardial revascularization (TMR)

Ascension St. Vincent Heart Center cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists are raising the bar in quality of care standards and next generation techniques for heart valve patients. Our performance standards exceed national standards. We treat more heart valve cases than any other heart care center in the Midwest.

Internationally, our cardiologists are invited to speak at numerous medical meetings, recognized for their experience and innovations in minimally invasive procedures.

  • We were the first heart center to perform transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and mitral valve surgery.
  • The pioneer spirit continues with minimally invasive MitralClip™ transcatheter mitral valve repair for patients with mitral regurgitation. Ascension St. Vincent is a clinical trial site leader for this innovative procedure.
  • Ascension St. Vincent Heart Center was the first site in Indiana to provide the FDA-approved Edwards SAPIEN® valve for aortic stenosis repair.
