Get a second opinion on Cardiac Surgery


Second opinion offers peace of mind.

If you are facing heart surgery for a cardiac bypass, heart valve replacement or repair, or any other critical heart issue, you might have questions about what the right treatment is for you. A second opinion consult can help you understand your options and assist you with this important decision. As Greater Cincinnati’s only Cardiovascular Center of Excellence accredited by the American Heart Association, we offer the area’s best heart care, right here.

At St. Elizabeth Heart & Vascular Institute, we understand your concerns and questions. Our surgeons offer quick appointments for second opinions, usually within a few days. We will help facilitate getting your records and coordinating with your insurance. Most insurance plans cover second opinions. You do not have to transfer your care to us in order to get a second opinion.

Extraordinary Care. Unmatched Expertise. 

For more than five years, St. Elizabeth has been raising the bar for healthcare in our region through our collaboration with Mayo Clinic. Special access to Mayo Clinic has been an invaluable resource for our physicians and associates as well as our patients and the community. And working with Mayo Clinic has helped advance programs and cultivate relationships that will improve health outcomes through the delivery of high-quality services and evidence-based medical care.

Because St. Elizabeth is a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, we also can provide our patients with a second opinion from the experts at the Mayo Clinic without additional cost or travel. Using a Mayo eConsult, your physician will transmit your records via a secure online portal to Mayo Clinic for review by their physician experts. The process is convenient, cost-effective and fast.

St. Elizabeth was the first healthcare system in Kentucky, Ohio or Indiana to have passed Mayo Clinic’s rigorous review process. The Mayo Clinic Care Network gives our physicians special access to knowledge, resources and expertise of Mayo Clinic — supporting our mission of providing our patients with the best care available, right here.
