Comprehensive private heart surgery for structural heart disease and disease of the coronary arteries
At Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow, we are proud to be the only private hospital in Scotland to offer heart surgery. We provide a dedicated private cardiac service for patients who have been diagnosed with a heart condition and require a surgical procedure undertaken by a cardiothoracic surgeon.
We offer comprehensive private heart surgery for structural heart disease and disease of the coronary arteries.
Highly trained cardiothoracic surgeons with extensive cardiac surgery experience work alongside an experienced team of cardiologists, anaesthetists, specialist nurses, resident medical officers and physiotherapists to deliver exceptional, safe, high-quality care. We are also the only private hospital in Scotland with a five-bed, level 3 intensive care unit (ICU), which allows for this specialist surgery to take place at Ross Hall Hospital.
Patients benefit from accurate diagnosis and leading treatment for a wide range of cardiac conditions with cutting-edge technology, modern facilities and the highest standard of comfort and cleanliness available. We also offer leading post-operative care to ensure your recovery is as fast and effective as possible.
Our primary focus is always on patient care, comfort and support, and the specialists will aim to get you back to health as soon as possible.
Private Heart Surgery at Ross Hall Hospital is offered to patients needing:
Cardiac surgeons work in unison with cardiologists, anaesthetists, and other professionals such as perfusionists (operators of the heart-lung machine used in theatres), theatre nurses, operating department personnel, and intensive care staff.
The majority of modern cardiac surgeries at Ross Hall Hospital are performed using minimally invasive techniques where possible.
We offer a range of less invasive Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) operations with Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting (EVH) using CoreVista from CardioPrecision and HemoPro2 from Getinge.
We also offer On-Pump and Off-Pump CABG Surgery, minimally invasive Aortic Valve Replacement (AVR), and minimally invasive excision of Left Atrial Myxoma, as well as other solutions tailored to the individual patient.
Your consultant will be able to explain all of these technical terms so you fully understand any procedure you might need. Your surgeon will give you all the time you need to be fully informed and reassured about an upcoming procedure. We know that heart surgery can be scary, which is why the experienced cardiac surgeons will be with you every step of the way.
Private heart surgery at Ross Hall Hospital is offered to patients needing:
Diagnosis, consultations and treatment will always be tailored to you and conducted by the best assortment of cardiothoracic surgeons from the experienced multidisciplinary team at Ross Hall Hospital.
During the initial consultation, your consultant will learn about and assess your symptoms and medical history to get a clear picture of the situation, your concerns and to determine the appropriate next steps.
The heart surgeon may request that additional scans and tests be carried out to ensure we have all the necessary information to be able to suggest a surgical option accurately.
Once the results have been received and you agree on a surgical treatment option with your consultant, you will be able to agree upon a date for your surgery, offered at a time and day that suits you.
You will be admitted the night before surgery and be visited by your anaesthetist and consultant. Your consultant will be with you every step of the way, from start to finish checking on you every day that you are in hospital and will be regularly available for contact and questions if you have them. A specialist cardiac registrar is on-site 24/7 and will be available for assistance during your time at Ross Hall Hospital.
Once your surgery is complete and the recovery process has been initiated, you will be cared for by professional and experienced HDU and ITU staff for post-operative care. This close-knit team is there to offer you reassurance and care throughout your recovery.
During your time with us, you will also benefit from the expert physiotherapists at Ross Hall Hospital, who will see you every day to aid your recovery.
Usually, you will go home around five days after the surgery and continue to receive support during the 6-8 week period of initial recovery. During this time, if you have questions or concerns, you will be able to contact your consultant with any questions or queries. Full recovery from cardiac surgery takes around three months.
Our expert cardiothoracic surgeons and the wider hospital team will do everything in their power to make sure your time at Ross Hall Hospital is as comfortable as possible, ensuring you receive a timely diagnosis and comprehensive, bespoke cardiac treatment.
When undergoing a significant cardiac operation, you’ll want to know you are in the very best hands to carry out such procedures and see you through to a fast and complete recovery.
We offer a range of advanced cardiac surgical treatment options that are often only able to be performed by a handful of surgeons, many of which treat at Ross Hall Hospital. We utilise industry-leading technology to provide minimally-invasive operations, ensuring our patients recover far quicker than traditional methods.
Our primary focus is always on patient care, comfort and support, and the specialists will aim to get you back to normal as soon as possible.
We are very proud of the attributes that set our cardiac surgery unit apart:
We are the only private hospital in Scotland offering Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery with Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting (EVH), taking advantage of a smaller incision to minimise invasiveness and enhance patient recovery. Mr Fraser Sutherland is the Consultant Cardiac Surgeon at Ross Hall Hospital who performs CABG with EVH.
