Heart outcomes

We have assembled a nationally respected team of doctors and clinicians at Tyler Heart Institute. You can receive the most advanced care, right here in the comfort of your own community. After your surgery, we will provide you with the rehabilitation and lifestyle coaching you will need. Included below are quality measures for four different heart procedures. We consistently strive for the best quality and recovery for our patients.
