Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
UF Health Heart & Vascular Surgery at Halifax Health offers coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), which many have come to know as open-heart or heart bypass surgery. Bypass surgery may be needed when someone needs a new route, or bypass, so that the blood and oxygen is still able to flow through their body and reach their heart. The surgery is performed when there are partial or full blockages that are preventing your heart from receiving an adequate blood supply. When your heart is not getting enough blood, it is in a state of ischemic heart disease, also called coronary heart disease, which can lead to chest pain.
Bypass surgery has helped improve blood flow to the heart in millions of people around the country, as well as many people local to Volusia, Flagler and Brevard counties. UF Health Heart & Vascular Surgery offers both off-pump and on-pump heart bypass surgery.
