Special Congratulations to Cardiac Surgery
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) has given its highest rating, three stars, to three surgical programs at MedStar Washington Hospital Center: coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), aortic valve replacement (AVR) and combined AVR + CABG.
The STS registry is the most respected clinical database in the country, and the three star rating in all three programs puts our Cardiac Surgery program among a very small, elite group of national programs that meets benchmarks for overall performance, survival rates, complications, and other measures.
Under the leadership of Paul Corso, MD, the achievements from STS represent the hard work of the entire Cardiac Surgery team during the past few years.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone, for your efforts every day for our patients and their families.
