St George’s is home to one of the largest cardiac (heart) centres in the south east of England.

We carry out more than 700 cardiac surgery operations every year, and provide services for people living in south London, Surrey, as well as further afield.

We have a team of seven consultant cardiac surgeons, who work as party of a multi-disciplinary team that also involves cardiologists, specialist nurses, anaesthetists, therapists, plus many more.

Our cardiac surgery teams provide the full range of adult cardiac surgery operations, including heart bypass surgery, mitral valve repair and aortic surgery. We also provide pre-operative and post-operative care.
