At The Heart of Innovation: Q&A w/ Cardiovascular Thought Leaders – Sean Lyden, MD
For many, the words ‘heart care’ don’t bring to mind vascular specialties, but the heart and the body’s peripheral circulation are more closely intertwined than one might think. At Cleveland Clinic, the structure of our Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute reflects this overlap – facilitating collaboration for superior outcomes. For this reason, alongside his sheer inventiveness, we’ve chosen to include Sean Lyden, MD, Department Chairman, Vascular Surgery, in our ‘Heart of Innovation’ heart month campaign. Through his interview, Dr. Lyden opened our eyes to the decrease in vascular surgery invasiveness through time, the value of Cleveland Clinic’s unique institute structure, and the spotlight on cost of care that must accompany innovation.
