Highest quality of care
Harshitha’s Cardiothoracic Surgery team is one of the few Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) experts in Southern India. MICS is performed through a small incision made under the patient’s breast, whereby our surgeons use special instruments to access the heart through the rib cage. The incision is about 2 to 4 inches instead of the 6- to 8-inch incision required for a traditional sternotomy.
The benefits of this approach include a smaller incision and scar, lower risk of infection, less bleeding, less trauma, a potentially decreased hospital stay and a quicker return to normal activities. The average stay after minimally invasive cardiac surgery is 3 to 5 days, while the average stay after traditional open surgery is 5 days. Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery can be used as an approach to valve repair, valve replacement, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
