Who we are

It is the mission of Sacramento Cardiovascular Surgeons to provide the highest quality of care in a caring and supportive environment.  Since our inception more than 50 years ago, we have had a rich history of innovation and the advancement of cardiac surgical procedures.  This rich tradition continues today with the most comprehensive treatment options for cardiac diseases and excellent clinical outcomes.

Our Surgeons

Our surgeons are trained and experienced in treating patients of all ages. Our dedication to service and our strong affiliation with Sutter Medical Center have helped to rank us in the highest categories in terms of operative results, surpassing state and national averages.

Recognized for performing landmark surgical procedures, including the first successful open heart surgery in the Sacramento area, first pediatric open heart surgery, and Sacramento’s first successful heart transplant, our surgeons continue to set procedural precedence. They are nationally acclaimed for their work with the holmium laser for patients with inoperable coronary arteries, and are acknowledged leaders in the minimally invasive surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation.


Sacramento Cardiovascular Surgeons have a very experienced team of Physicians Assistants, Registered Nurses and Support Staff.  We work very closely with the Sutter Heart & Vascular program and our referring physicians to provide the best clinical care for our patients.


We work with many local, state and national organizations to continue to be a leader in cardiac surgery.  These organizations include:
