What Are Minimally Invasive Heart Surgeries?

The heart is a vital organ which gets affected due to several factors such as smoking, drinking, stress, and others. Some people get affected by heart diseases due to their lifestyle factors, whereas few are born with them. However, most of the cardiac disorders today are curable with the introduction of latest medical technology.

Minimally invasive cardiac surgeries are alternatives to open-heart surgery. In these procedures, the surgeon makes smaller incisions on the side of the chest, between the ribs.

Unlike open-heart surgery, this procedure involves smaller incisions and causes less pain and requires a shorter recovery period. It gives a better view of the inner parts of the heart and may need a heart-lung machine to stop the temporary functioning of your heart.
