Heart and Vascular Care
San Diego Heart and Vascular
Cardiac care the way it should be.
At Sharp HealthCare, you'll find the widest possible range of cardiac treatments. Here, skill, technology and compassion are combined to create choices that you never thought possible.
Advanced heart care, close to home.
Our affiliated doctors and heart specialists are recognized leaders, providing you with decades of experience. Using the most advanced technologies, we treat a variety of conditions — from congestive heart failure to atrial fibrillation and heart valve disease. We see damaged valves repaired without open heart surgery, lives restored with mechanical devices such as LVADs and patients reborn through the miracle of heart transplantation.
At the core of this care is compassion — a medical journey we call The Sharp Experience. It's going beyond caring for people to caring about people. From prevention to diagnosis, treatment to support groups we'll help you and your family face whatever comes your way. It's the care you need, when you need it.
A history of firsts.
We're proud to lead the charge in heart care. It's part of our history. San Diego's first open-heart surgery, heart transplant and cardiac catheterization all happened at Sharp, and we've pioneered new cardiac technologies including LVADs. Today, Sharp is the only provider of full spectrum advanced heart failure treatments in our community. We're among the first hospitals in the nation to offer the Watchman™ left atrial appendage closure device, an implant that keeps harmful blood clots from entering the blood stream — and we continue to develop and adopt the latest in cardiac technologies.
