Robotic-assisted cardiac surgery

Also known as: da Vinci surgery for coronary artery disease

If you have been told you need coronary artery bypass surgery, ask your doctor about da Vinci® Surgery for coronary artery disease. This surgery is performed without the need for a heart-lung machine and minimally invasively - through small incisions made between the ribs. This avoids the need for a sternotomy, its associated risks and complications.

da Vinci Surgery for coronary artery disease can also offer several potential benefits over open heart surgery, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and need for blood transfusions
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
