What is minimally invasive cardiac surgery?

Minimally invasive cardiac surgery includes techniques that allow surgeons to perform surgery through smaller incisions than those used in traditional open-heart surgery.

How do I know if I am a candidate for minimally invasive heart surgery?

Candidates are determined based on their medical history, current health condition, and a thorough evaluation by our cardiothoracic surgeons.

How does a heart valve operation differ from heart valve repair?

Heart valve operation may involve either repairing the existing valve to make it work better or replacing it with an artificial valve if repair is not feasible.

Who needs a heart transplant?

Heart transplants are typically reserved for patients with end-stage heart failure or severe heart damage where other treatments have failed.

What is involved in minimally invasive CABG surgery?

It involves bypassing the blocked coronary arteries using a blood vessel graft to improve blood flow to the heart muscle, performed through smaller incisions.

What are the benefits of keyhole cardiac surgery?

Benefits include reduced pain and scarring, shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery, and less risk of infection.

What should I expect during recovery from cardiothoracic surgery?

Recovery can vary depending on the specific procedure but generally includes pain management, gradual physical therapy, and regular follow-up visits.

What are the risks associated with aortic stenosis surgery?

Common risks include bleeding, infection, stroke, and reactions to anesthesia, but the severity and likelihood vary per individual.

Can heart surgery cure heart failure?

While surgery can significantly improve symptoms and quality of life, it is not a cure for heart failure but a treatment to manage its symptoms and complications.

How long is the hospital stay after minimally invasive heart surgery?

The length of stay can vary, but many patients go home in 2 to 5 days post-surgery, depending on their recovery speed and procedure complexity.
