Minimally invasive surgery (also known as keyhole, robotic, MIS,
laparoscopic, or endoscopic surgery) allows Main Line Health cardiac
surgeons at Lankenau
Medical Center, Lankenau
Heart Institute, Bryn Mawr Hospital
and Paoli Hospital to
perform many types of surgical procedures through one to two fingertip
sized incisions. For most patients, a minimally invasive robotic
approach decreases overall trauma to the body, it eliminates the need to
split the breast bone and spread the ribs to access the heart. This
substantially lessens pain and blood loss, is cosmetically appealing and
a provides much shorter recovery.
