Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery
The Art Of Healing
Discuss safety, Outcome & benefits
The Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery and Robotic Heart Surgery program was started in 2008. Our early experience with the technique was at the Harvard Medical School’s BWH hospital and since its initiation it’s grown to be the largest minimally invasive cardiac surgery program and the only qualified robotic heart surgery program in the country. With an experience of over 15 years and over 3000 procedures our safety and outcomes are well established in the country as well as among our peers. Our training fellowships are sought after and are frequently attended by surgeons from across the globe. Our contribution to the field is well recognised and our techniques are discussed in scientific forums while being highlighted as the benchmark. Our approach has always been to make heart surgery an acceptable therapy that causes the least amount of discomfort or disruptions and without the fear that its always associated with. In short we want our patients to be happy, independent and satisfied after heart surgery.
