Robert C. Hagberg, MD
Hartford, CT - Robert C. Hagberg, MD has been named chief of cardiac surgery at Hartford Hospital. He is a nationally renowned surgeon, researcher and educator who will further elevate Hartford Hospital’s cardiac surgery program, contribute to cardiac surgery research, expand cardiac surgical procedures and help train the next generation of advanced heart surgeons.

Dr. Hagberg comes to Hartford from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School in Boston, where he was an Assistant Professor of Surgery. There, he taught the clinical practice of cardiac surgery to Harvard medical students and general surgical residents, as well as cardiothoracic surgical residents and fellows.

He was previously in private practice in Norfolk, Va., where he also acted as investigator for a number of device trials in cardiac and vascular surgery, including several valve and stent graft trials, which eventually led to FDA approval.

Dr. Hagberg’s clinical interests include minimally invasive cardiac surgery, mitral valve repair, treatment for atrial fibrillation, stent grafting of the thoracic aorta and percutaneous valve techniques.

Dr. Hagberg received his undergraduate and medical degrees at Stanford University. Following medical school, he completed a residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and subsequently returned to Stanford to complete a cardiothoracic fellowship.
