BMC’s Yawkey building doors are now closed as an entrance as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our campus and provide you with the best clinical care.

All patients and visitors on our main campus must enter our hospital via Shapiro, Menino, or Moakley buildings, where they will be greeted by team members at a new centralized check-in desk before continuing to the hospital. We are excited to welcome you and appreciate your patience as we improve our facilities.

BMC has provided outstanding cardiac surgical care for more than 70 years. As one of the first cardiac surgery departments in the United States, we continue to build on that history of excellence every day. Our multidisciplinary team works with your cardiologist, cardiac nurses, other BMC specialists, and – most importantly – you and your family to provide the highest quality care and ensure the best possible outcomes.

Our heart surgeons are experts at treating coronary artery blockages and abnormal heart rhythms, repairing or replacing faulty heart valves, and repairing aortic aneurysms, among a wide range of other life-saving cardiac surgery procedures.

Patient Resources

Research Overview

In addition to providing high-quality patient care, our cardiac and thoracic surgeons are engaged in a range of research activities designed to improve care and quality of life for their patients. Research on endocarditis, aortic dissection during pregnancy, ventricular septal defects, robotics for lung surgery, and earlier screening tools for lung cancer, are among the projects currently under way. Our faculty are also actively involved in improving care for older patients, recently writing a chapter for physicians on the treatment of heart valve disease in the elderly.
