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, Paoli
Hospital and Riddle 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.
