General Description of the Division’s Activities
This surgical specialty deals with pericardium, heart, and large vessel diseases. We specifically focus on cardiopulmonary bypass, myocardial protection, and surgical treatments for ischemic heart diseases, valvular heart diseases and the thoracic aortic pathology, i.e., ascending aorta, aortic arch, descending thoracic aorta, and thoracoabdominal aneurysms. We are also specialized in surgical treatments for heart failure, pacemaker implants, heart tumors, pericardial diseases, and adult congenital heart diseases.
Members of the Division of Heart Surgery at the Université de Sherbrooke’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences are also active in doing research and teaching medical studies at both undergraduate and postdoctoral levels. We mainly do clinical research.
