Today more than 2,700 cardiac procedures are performed annually, ranging from stents and pacemaker implants to open-heart surgery.

If you are being admitted for open heart surgery, our "Going for Heart Surgery" booklet will explain what to bring and what to expect during your operation, stay and throughout the rehabilitation process.
