Division of Cardiovascular Surgery

Wilson Szeto, MD, and Michael Acker, MD, performing cardiac surgery

Penn's cardiovascular surgeons provide state-of-the-art treatment and clinical care for patients with a variety of cardiovascular diseases.

Our multidisciplinary approach enables us to work as a team, providing patients with the expert care they need when they need it.

The cardiovascular division has three sections, or subspeciality areas

  • Adult cardiovascular surgery
  • General thoracic surgery
  • Congenital heart surgery

The first two sections are based principally at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania while the later is at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
