Cardiac surgeries, also known as surgical interventions for heart conditions, are a pivotal aspect of medical care. These interventions involve surgical techniques applied to the heart, blood vessels, or adjacent structures with the primary goal of correcting or alleviating problems affecting the cardiovascular system. Surgical procedures may be employed as diagnostic tools to assess the extent and nature of heart-related problems. Some common surgical procedures include Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), Valve Repair or Replacement, Aneurysm Repair, and Congenital Heart Defect Repair etc. Advancements in surgical technology have led to the development of minimally invasive procedures. These involve smaller incisions and specialized tools, resulting in reduced pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times. Examples include minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery (MIDCAB) and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). In some cases, surgeons use robotic-assisted systems to perform heart surgery with precision and control. The Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery Department (CTVS) plays a pivotal role in performing these surgical interventions.
Complex cardiothoracic problems are the area of expertise for the Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery Department (CTVS) at Aster CMI Hospital. Our team is made up of well-known cardiothoracic surgeons who received their training at prestigious medical institutions in India and renowned universities worldwide. The staff also has vast experience—more than 65 years—and is skilled in handling even the most complex cardiac diseases.

Aortic aneurysm surgery is a procedure to repair or replace a weakened and enlarged section of the aorta, the body's main artery, to prevent rupture.
Aortic valve surgery is needed when the valve becomes damaged or diseased, either repairing or replacing the valve to restore normal blood flow.
Atrial fibrillation surgery aims to restore a normal heart rhythm by creating scar tissue or isolating certain areas of the heart responsible for irregular electrical signals.
Congenital heart surgery corrects heart defects present at birth, aiming to improve heart function and overall health.
Heart transplant surgery involves replacing a diseased or failing heart with a healthy donor heart to restore proper heart function.
The Bentall procedure involves replacing the aortic root and aortic valve while also treating an aortic aneurysm.
Open heart surgery involves accessing the heart through a large incision in the chest to perform complex procedures.
Aortic dissection surgery involves repairing a tear in the inner lining of the aorta, preventing the formation of a false channel where blood can accumulate. It is performed as an emergency life-saving procedure in most cases.
Coronary artery bypass surgery, or grafting, involves creating new pathways for blood to flow to the heart muscle, bypassing blocked or narrowed coronary arteries.
keyhole procedure, also known as minimally invasive surgery, involves making small incisions and using specialized instruments for less invasive surgery. This allows a faster recovery and earlier return to normal activity.
Carotid endarterectomy is a procedure to remove plaque buildup from the carotid arteries to reduce the risk of stroke.
ASD repair closes the hole between the heart's upper chambers, either through open-heart surgery or minimally invasive techniques or using a robotic approach.
Minimally invasive cardiac surgery involves smaller incisions and specialized techniques for heart procedures, leading to faster recovery and less scarring.
Robotic ASD closure surgery is a minimally invasive technique using robotic-assisted tools to repair an atrial septal defect (ASD).
