At the very outset, Blackrock Clinic was known for its expertise in cardiac procedures and high tech surgeries. Today, over 30 years later, Blackrock Clinic is still at the forefront of the latest techniques, procedures and technologies when it comes to cardiology.
Some of the newest procedures have been performed in Ireland for the first time by Blackrock Clinic Consultant Cardiologists. For example, in summer 2011, the first ever keyhole heart valve replacement surgery was performed in our hospital. More recently in August 2018, Ireland’s first minimally invasive heart bypass operation using robotics was successfully carried out here.
