Bypass Surgery
Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery

Our Surgeon also specialises in Bypass Surgery done through a small 4 to 5 cm incision, without cutting the breast bone. The advantages are obvious – minimal scarring and negligible pain with a rapid return to normalcy. This service is especially advantageous for ladies, children and those in whom cutting the breastbone is contraindicated.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery

The benefits of minimally invasive heart surgery include : –

  • A smaller incision
  • A smaller scar

Other possible benefits of minimally invasive heart surgery may include: –

  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Less bleeding with minimally invasive heart surgery
  • Less pain and trauma

Recovery after minimally invasive heart surgery

In general, you may be able to return to work (if you have a sedentary job), resume driving and participate in most non-strenuous activities within1 to 4 weeks after traditional minimally invasive heart surgery. You can resume heavy lifting and other more strenuous activities within 5 to 8 weeks after surgery. Your health care team will provide specific guidelines based on your rate of recovery.

Other surgical procedures we carry out are:

Small Incision Septal Defect Closure
Valve Repairs and Replacements called Valvoplasty
Valvoplasty or valve repair allows the surgeon to repair or replace a narrowed or leaking heart valve. If the damage is severe replacement of the valve is necessary.
