Cardiovascular Services

Remarkable Cardiac SpecialistsWidely recognised as a leader in private health care, the San was the first private hospital in Australia to offer a fully integrated cardiac surgery and catheterisation program in 1979. Since this time, more than 50,000 cardiovascular surgeries and procedures have been performed. Today more than 2,700 cardiac procedures are performed annually, ranging from stents and pacemaker implants to open-heart surgery.

Each year over 40,000 people die from diseases relating to the heart and blood vessels. These are commonly known as cardiovascular diseases (CVD). More people die from cardiovascular diseases in Australia than any other types of disease, with heart disease being the single leading cause. With the number of people suffering from heart-related issues on the rise and more people seeking treatment, finding a hospital that has a solid track record of providing top specialists in this field with expert care becomes very important.

At the San, we know that having a heart, lung or vascular operation is a major life event.
