Philadelphia International Medicine connects you with world-renowned cardiovascular care for adults and children with heart diseases and disorders. PIM network hospitals welcome and successfully treat some of the most complex cases in the world.
Innovation & Research
Minimally Invasive Procedures
PIM network hospitals are leaders in the use of minimally invasive approaches including beating-heart techniques and robotic-assisted procedures for coronary artery revascularization, complex aortic surgery, combined multi-valve procedures, and innovative transcatheter aortic valve replacements and transcatheter mitral valve repairs or replacements. Physicians also work with expectant parents to diagnose fetal congenital disease in the womb.
Innovations - Philips Brilliance iCT 256-slice scanner
Philadelphia is the home of innovations for treating a wide range of cardiovascular disorders. Physicians utilize the Philips Brilliance iCT 256-slice scanner, advanced technology that allows them to image arteries and the heart with never-before-seen clarity and details. They perform complex aortic surgery, cardiovascular genetics testing and leading-edge treatments.
Physicians in Philadelphia have performed over 1,000 transplants and the city's transplant surgeons are highly experienced in performing complex dual organ transplants (heart-lung, heart-kidney, heart-liver, heart-kidney-pancreas). They have the resources to support the recipients in the short and long-term.
Breakthroughs in Cardiovascular Research
Research is essential for advancing cardiovascular care, leading to medical breakthroughs that improve and save lives. Patients who participate in clinical trials gain access to new treatment options and health care choices that may not be available at other institutions. Many great advances in cardiovascular care have come from innovations in surgical approaches, medical devices and medications that are first evaluated during a clinical trial at PIM network hospitals.
