Many cardiac procedures can be performed less invasively thanks to robotic technology combined with the expertise of robotic assisted cardiac surgery pioneer Thomas Molloy, MD, and his team at Northwest Regional Heart & Vascular. Smaller incisions and less tissue and bone trauma result in faster recovery, shorter hospital stays and reduced pain.
In addition to our flagship hospital surgical center in southeast Portland, we have clinics and offices across the state to support patients from around the Northwest and beyond. Learn more about the care available where you like it best: close to home.
