How Many Heart Surgeries Are Performed Each Year?
Few surgeries are as nerve-wracking and intricate as heart surgery. Although patients may feel uneasy or anxious going into their procedure, cardiothoracic surgeries are more common than most think. To one of the estimated 4,000 cardiothoracic surgeons practicing as of 2015, it’s just another day on the job.¹
Whether a cardiopulmonary artery bypass graft, a heart valve repair or replacement, or arrhythmia treatment, the United States is host to thousands of heart surgeries every day. About 500,000 coronary bypass procedures are performed every year.² Some research indicates the number of heart surgeries is expected to increase by 54% over the next 15 years.³
