Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery
Traditional heart surgery requires the surgeon to cut open the patient's chest and divide the breastbone. Minimally invasive heart surgery allows our cardiac surgeons to work through small incisions only three to four inches long, using elongated instruments and scopes.
What are the benefits of minimally invasive heart surgery?
- Less pain
- Shorter recovery time
- Smaller scars
- Shorter hospital stay
- Low risk of infection
- Low risk of bleeding and blood transfusion
