Direction of the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery (from 1st of January 2006)

The Department of Cardiovascular Surgery at Osaka University has been a top-class contributor to the development of the Japanese cardiovascular surgical field since 1956, with the first successful open heart surgery using a heart-lung machine in Japan.
Since then, we have developed less invasive surgical methods for congenital heart disease, valvular heart disease, coronary artery / aorta / peripheral vascular diseases, and various surgical treatments for severe heart failure. By providing comprehensive, advanced medical care, our heart teams maintain top-class surgery results nationwide.
