Mission Statement


Council members are American Heart Association volunteers. The Council on Cardiovascular Surgery and Anesthesia includes surgeons, anesthesiologists and scientists interested in cardiac, vascular and thoracic interventions.  The council is involved in a full range of American Heart Association activities, including basic science and clinical trials.  Specific goals of the council are to improve application of established surgical procedures and anesthetic techniques, increase awareness of new issues in the field of cardiovascular surgery and anesthesia, and disseminate new knowledge to increase the number of patients who may benefit from safer and more effective surgical treatment.  All cardiovascular surgeons, thoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists and other professional colleagues are encouraged to become council members.

Together, one patient at a time, we can build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. To learn more, visit heart.org/myhealthcare.
