What is MICS CABG?


The Coronary Bypass Technique Performed Minimally Invasively Without Cutting Any Bone

MICS CABG is an advanced minimally invasive technique for multi-vessel bypass (CABG). It offers several advantages over the traditional open technique while preserving both the safety and quality of open surgery. It helps patients heal faster, and recover quicker without the complications of open surgery.

Take Your Surgical Experience  Beyond The Ordinary

Safety & Efficacy

The MICS CABG procedure is extremely safe. With our experience of over 1700 operations the risk is as low as 0.3%. The measuring tools we use also ensures that the operation is accurately performed. 

Healing & Recovery

The small 2.5 inch cut heals rapidly. The likely chance for infection is extremely low and major complications are practically zero. Return to active life is usually as early as a week.

Diet & Diabetes

Its important to control blood sugars immediately after surgery to prevent infection and patients are usually given a regimen to follow. A low fat, high protien diet is usually recommended. 

Activity & Exercise

Patients are encouraged to be independent and resume normal activty within 24 hours after surgery. After leaving the hospital they are encouraged to walk for a minimum of 30 min with no restrictions to bending, lifting weights or driving.

People from different backgrounds choose minimally invasive CABG (MICS CABG) for varying needs. While some choose the procedure for a faster and less painful recovery, others choose it because they are too old to tolerate a major open surgery or because they want to return to work with the least amount of disruption. Whatever the reason, MICS CABG is a compelling choice for anyone who needs a coronary bypass. Below are a few of our patient stories that we found interesting.

1. Who needs CABG?

CABG or Coronary artery bypass grafting is required for patients who have one or more blocks in the blood vessels that supply the heart. These blocks are diagnosed after an angiogram.

2. Is minimally invasive surgery safe?

In an experienced and skilled hands, Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery is very safe. Complication in minimally invasive cardiac surgery are a lot less when compared to open heart surgery.

3. Can CABG be done minimally invasive?

Yes. CABG can be performed minimally invasively through a small incision without cutting any bone, using specialized surgical instruments. This is called MICS CABG. Our experience with this technique is the largest in the world with over 2000 procedures done so far. A robot can also be used to assist in some cases.

4. How long does pain last after CABG?

The pain of surgery is subjective. Typically, the pain lasts for 1 to 2 months after open CABG. More than physical pain, it’s the psychological trauma of undergoing an invasive procedure that affects patients. After minimally invasive CABG or MICS CABG pain usually disappears after 3 to 5 days.

5. What is the recovery time after MICS CABG?

The recovery time after MICS CABG is usually 1 week. However, recovery time can be longer if a patient is sick or unfit prior to the surgery. Patients who are active, with preserved heart function, well controlled diabetes and no other additoinal risk factors (eg: obesity, kidney failure, stroke) will recover faster.
