Minimally Invasive Heart Bypass Surgery: A Better Way

You know you or a loved one might need heart bypass surgery. But did you know there’s a new and better way to do it?

The traditional way: open heart surgery, broken ribs and months of recovery time. The new: minimally invasive bypass, a few small incisions and the chance to get back to your normal routine in days.

Minimally Invasive Heart Bypass Surgery - Sanger Heart & Vascular Insitute
With traditional open heart surgery, doctors get to your heart by making a large cut down the center of your chest and separating the breastbone.

Minimally Invasive Heart Bypass Surgery - Sanger Heart & Vascular Insitute
With minimally invasive bypass surgery, doctors get to your heart by making three small cuts in your chest. The ribs and breastbone stay intact.

Here’s what you’ll have with minimally invasive bypass:

  • Less pain. No broken bones. All you have to heal from is a few small cuts.
  • Recovery in days, not months. Get back to work – or play – in record time.
  • Lower risk of complications. Less to recover from means a better outcome.
  • A scar-free chest. With just a few tiny cuts, you’ll have little to no scarring.
