Minimally invasive heart surgery
Many traditional cardiac surgeries are performed through an opening in the chest. Although this is the most direct way to access the heart, it often leads to longer recovery times and scarring for patients.
When possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques, which allow for much smaller and less invasive incisions to access the heart and coronary arteries. Specialized instruments are utilized in these minimally invasive approaches that allow for a high degree of precision and accuracy.
There are many benefits to minimally invasive procedures, including:
- Faster recovery time
- Faster return to activity or work
- Reduced pain
- Shorter hospital stay
Our experienced team of cardiothoracic surgeons will evaluate a patient’s condition and assess the surgical benefits and risks to determine the best treatment option.
