When minimally invasive interventions such as cardiac catheterization or valvuloplasty are not an option to treat congenital heart disease, a pediatric or adult heart care physician may recommend robotic assisted surgery as the best course for treatment.
Heart & Vascular Care Treatments
Robotic assisted heart valve repair or replacement surgery using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci) is performed to mend defective or diseased mitral or tricuspid valves.
Robotic assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci) reduces the risks associated with the use of the heart-lung machine—cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and allows for a faster recovery.
This minimally invasive procedure, similar to MAZE surgery, uses ablation rather than a scalpel and is performed with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci), a robotic computer technology.
External cardiac counterpulsation is a noninvasive outpatient technique performed to decrease chest pain (angina pectoris) by increasing oxygen-rich blood flow to the heart.
In this video Dr. Bethencourt performs an open-heart surgery to replace a leaking mitrial valve and tricuspid valve and to treat atrial fibrillation.
An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a small, battery-operated device.
We provide surgical services for lead placement, extractions and replacement.
Left ventricular reconstruction surgery is performed to repair a left ventricle that has been damaged during a heart attack.
Maze surgery treats atrial fibrillation, a type of an abnormal heart rhythm, by creating a "maze" of new electrical pathways so that electrical impulses can travel easily through the heart.
A coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgical procedure that is performed without having the heart stopped and connected to a heart-lung machine.
