Minimal Invasive Heart Surgery

During minimally invasive heart surgery, we perform heart surgery through small
incisions as an alternative to open-heart surgery. Surgeons don’t perform surgery through
the breastbone (sternotomy), rather, we operate between the ribs, which may result in less
pain and a quicker recovery for many people. Minimally invasive heart surgery may be
performed to treat a variety of heart conditions which includes:
Coronary artery bypass surgery,
Mitral valve repair and replacement,
Aortic valve replacement,
Tricuspid valve repair and replacement,
Atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale closure,
Saphenous vein harvest for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Potential benefits of minimally invasive heart surgery compared with open-heart
surgery are Less blood loss,Lower risk of infection,Reduced trauma and pain,Shorter time
in the hospital, faster recovery and quicker return to normal activities,Smaller, less
noticeable scars. Minimal invasive surgery is also the best choice especially in high risky
patients such as patients with obesity, osteoporosis, diabetis mellitus, hemiplejia,patients
with lack of extremity,e.t.c
