Albany Med has one of the top cardiac surgery programs in the nation. Working with the newest surgical techniques, equipment and devices, our cardiac surgeons perform a wide range of cardiac surgery available on patients of all ages. We have led the way in heart care for decades, performing many of the region’s first heart procedures—including the first heart transplant and the first open heart surgery on an infant.
