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
The da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci) uses robotic computer technology providing breakthrough minimally invasive surgical capabilities that offer greater surgical benefits.
Robotic-assisted heart valve repair or replacement surgery using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System is performed to mend defective or diseased mitral or tricuspid valves.
Robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System 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, a robotic computer technology.
Robotic- assisted mitral valve surgery is a type of minimally invasive heart surgery performed by a cardiac surgeon with an endoscopic, closed-chest approach. This procedure is performed when the mitral valve does not function properly.
Septal myomectomy surgery is performed to remove part of an enlarged heart muscle called the septal muscle.
The suite takes minimally invasive capabilities to a higher level, with advanced imaging technology supporting a wide variety of interventional vascular procedures.
The human heart is a muscular organ that is made up of four chambers and there are four valves that allow blood to flow through the heart.
Valvuloplasty is a procedure performed to increase the opening of a narrowed or defective valve in the heart.
