Mercy Cardiothoracic Surgical Associates

Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery

Beginning in the 1990s the standard for cardiothoracic surgery changed. Emerging technologies rapidly advanced the field; today patients presenting with a wide variety of diagnoses can benefit from minimally invasive and robotic surgery. Mercy Cardiothoracic Surgical Associates have demonstrated expertise in the latest cardiac and thoracic surgery techniques.

In minimally invasive and robotic surgery, surgeons are able to make small (less than half-inch) incisions and thread a video camera and specialized surgical instruments through tubes inserted through the incisions to get a detailed 3-D image of the operating site and to perform highly delicate procedures with great accuracy. Minimally invasive and robotic surgery offers patients numerous benefits including:
  • less postoperative pain
  • reduced risk of infection
  • shorter recovery time and inpatient stay
  • improved post-operative cosmetic results
The Mercy Cardiothoracic Surgical Associates have extensive experience using an advanced surgical robot, the da Vinci® surgical system. They specialize in using the da Vinci system to perform:
  • MAZE atrial fibrillation surgery
  • transmyocardial laser revascularization
  • hybrid coronary revascularization
  • atrial septal defect repair
  • coronary-artery bypass graft procedures
  • mitral valve repair and replacement
  • Surgery of the lungs, esophagus, and mediastinum
