Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute Named a Top Cardiac Bypass Surgery Provider

Worth magazine has selected Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute as one of the top 25 in the U.S. for cardiac bypass surgery.

The list, compiled for the magazine by healthcare research firm Castle Connolly, appeared in the December/January issue. Cedars-Sinai is one of only three hospitals on the West Coast included on the list. It was based on factors including "outcome" measures and quality rankings.

"Our entire team in bypass surgery, led by Alfredo Trento, M.D., is honored to be recognized for providing our patients with the highest quality care," said Eduardo Marbán, M.D., Ph.D, director of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute. "We strive to give our patients the best available treatments today while developing the leading-edge treatments of tomorrow."

The magazine highlighted the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute's groundbreaking cardiac stem cell clinical trial, directed by Dr. Marbán.
