Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery

Minimally-Invasive, Robot-Assisted Heart Surgery in Richardson

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat a cardiac condition such as severe coronary artery disease (CAD) to ease your symptoms and reduce your risk of a heart attack, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive heart surgery. This revolutionary robotic system enables surgeons to operate with 3D-high definition vision and unmatched precision and control.

Experience the Benefits of Robotic Heart Surgery

Traditionally, open heart surgery requires a sternotomy, which requires the doctor to cut through the breastbone through an 8-to-10 inch incision and spread the patient’s ribs to gain access the heart.

With heart surgery, the heart surgeons at Methodist Richardson Medical Center can avoid the risks and complications associated with a sternotomy by making small incisions made between the ribs. Robotic heart surgery also avoids the need for a heart-lung machine and its potential risks and complications.

There are several other potential benefits of coronary artery bypass surgery over traditional open heart surgery, including:

  • May eliminate need for a blood transfusion
  • Fewer incisions mean faster recovery times
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Reduced blood loss

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient-and procedure specific.
