Your cardiovascular system is complicated,
but your care doesn’t have to be.

The Robert Wood Johnson Health System offers a wide range of services at any of our four hospitals, from routine diagnostic testing to interventional catheter solutions through to heart transplant surgery. When it comes to cardiovascular care, we don’t miss a beat.

    All of our hospitals are equipped to perform routine cardiovascular procedures. But did you know they are also able to coordinate care for patients with complications?

“Dr. Lee said my valve was leaking pretty badly and I needed surgery He said it would be easier for me to recover if we chose the robot. I had total confidence in Dr. Lee, so I went for it. This technology is fantastic, I didn’t expect everything to go this smoothly. I have a ton of energy- I feel great.”
