How does minimally invasive cardiac surgery differ?

The surgeon makes many small incisions between the ribs instead of one major incision and severing the breastbone in the least invasive method. The surgeon can perform the treatment with precision using a sophisticated surgical device with a camera and other surgical equipment.

While minimally invasive cardiac surgery is available to most patients, only you and your surgeon can determine which approach is best for your situation.

key benefits of minimally invasive cardiac surgery

There is less pain

Because open-heart surgery necessitates a big incision and the fracturing of the breastbone, health-care providers place a high priority on postoperative pain and discomfort management. Medication is commonly prescribed by doctors to help manage pain. Because minimally invasive cardiac surgery avoids severing the breastbone and instead employs small incisions, patients report far less pain after the procedure.

Less scars after surgery

After open-heart surgery, you can expect to have a large scar in the middle of your chest. Patients who undergo minimally invasive cardiac surgery, on the other hand, experience less scarring and a better cosmetic outcome.

Speedy recovery

Body trauma is reduced with minimally invasive cardiac surgery. Because of the small incisions and the avoidance of piercing the breastbone, patients heal in days rather than weeks. Patients can return to work and other activities considerably faster than they can after open-heart surgery.
