Staying abreast of advanced technology

The cardiac surgeons on our medical staff are experts in traditional open heart surgeries; however, they are also leaders in innovative minimally invasive techniques. These options allow surgeons to perform complex surgery on high-risk patients who might not otherwise be eligible for open heart surgery.

Minimally invasive heart surgery requires smaller incisions, which may also benefit patients:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain after surgery
  • Less (and smaller) scarring
  • Quicker return to normal activity
  • Fewer complications
  • Decreased risk of infection
