Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery
For more than a decade, Cleveland Clinic's Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute has formed affiliations with cardiothoracic surgery and cardiovascular medicine programs in Ohio and across the country, aimed to combine the unparalleled research and expertise of Cleveland Clinic’s heart program with other cardiac leaders.
Cleveland Clinic’s Heart and Vascular Institute’s newest affiliation with the Martin Health System, is seeking a highly qualified BoardCertified/Board Eligible Cardiothoracic Surgeon to join its practice at the Martin Health System in Stuart, Florida, which is located on the Treasure Coast.
The position responsibilities entail being able to perform all aspects of Adult Cardiac Surgery. Surgeons at the institution offer expertise in minimally invasive valve surgery, off-pump coronary bypass, arrhythmia surgery, surgery for complex valvular heart disease and heart failure, mitral valve repair, thoracic aortic surgery, thoracoscopic lung resection and mediastinal surgery. A robotic surgical program is under development. Future goals include the development of a regional destination cardiac surgery program and lung cancer center. Endovascular and/or assist device experience is desirable but not a requirement. Expertise in General Thoracic Surgery is desirable but not an absolute requirement.
The successful candidate will join a dynamic team that is coordinating clinical care, research, education, and growth of Cleveland Clinic Florida cardiothoracic surgery services in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic Heart and Vascular Institute in Ohio and Martin Health System.
