Cooper cardiothoracic surgeons perform cardiovascular procedures, including coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), heart valve repair or replacement, and correction of other defects of the heart. These physicians also perform surgery on the major arteries, the lungs and the esophagus.
Cooper cardiothoracic surgery is the most advanced provider of cardiac and thoracic surgical services in southern New Jersey, offering superior care with unique advantages for the patient and the referring physician.
Nationally recognized surgical experts
The Cooper cardiothoracic team of surgeons offers a level of clinical expertise that is unmatched in the region. Our program has been recognized as among the top 15 percent in the nation by The Society for Thoracic Surgeons for coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) and in the top 6 percent in the nation for aortic valve replacement surgery (AVR). The “3-Star” rating that Cooper received for both surgeries places it among the top 2 percent of hospitals with similar programs - the highest quality tier of The Society for Thoracic Surgeons comprehensive rating system. This system compares the quality of cardiac surgery among hospitals across the country. All aspects of quality care in cardiothoracic surgery were measured including compliance with recommended medical practices, prompt delivery of time-critical treatment, availability of resources, staff performance and patient outcomes.
State-of-the-art hospital facilities
The Cooper University Hospital patient-care Pavilion features a 30-bed medical-surgical intensive care unit and state-of-the-art cardiac surgical suites.
Superior patient outcomes
Cooper cardiothoracic surgery patient outcomes far exceed the national averages for cardiac surgery.
Innovative treatment options
Cooper cardiothoracic surgeons perform many procedures off-pump, minimally invasive or with robotic assistance, developing an individualized surgical plan of care that minimizes recovery time and complications.
Advanced transfer services for cardiac emergencies
Cooper University Hospital offers unmatched access to emergent cardiac surgery. The Cooper Transfer System, COTS, provides 24/7 air or land transfer of seriously ill cardiac patients from more than 20 community hospitals in the Delaware Valley.

Cutting-Edge Cardiothoracic Procedures
Cutting-edge cardiothoracic procedures include aortic valve replacement (AVR), robotic-assisted coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, laser transmyocardial revascularization, ventricular assist devices for end-stage heart disease, and allograph aortic surgery. Cooper was one of 12 sites that participated in clinical trials of the robotic DaVinci™ Surgical System for cardiothoracic surgery. This minimally invasive system allows surgeons to be more precise and results in less post-surgical pain and scarring, a lower risk of complications or infection, and a quicker recovery for patients.
Today, Cooper cardiothoracic surgeons routinely use this system in closed-chest beating-heart surgery. In patients with too much disease for bypass surgery, cardiothoracic surgeons improve blood flow through laser transmyocardial revascularization.
Traditional cardiothoracic procedures, such as on-pump coronary artery bypass surgery, coronary artery grafting using arterial grafts, valvular reconstruction and replacement, and resection of aortic aneurysms, are also available.
