For the first time in Indian Medical history the surgeons of Sterling Hospital in Vadodara performed three Minimal Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) in a day. The hospital performed successful MICS surgeries on 15 patients in the last two and half months and are requesting the patients to opt for the new surgery.
The team of Dr. Bhupesh Shah, Dr. Gaurav Goyal and Dr. Abhishek Parmar from Department of Cardiac Sciences performed the three surgeries in a single day. They said the new surgery is a boon for the heart patients.
“In a open heart surgery we have to cut nearly 15 cms on chest and cut the bones for the surgery. But in this MICS we have to cut only 4 to 5 cms and insert the specially made surgical instruments to perform the surgery without cutting the bones. The procedure of surgery is same in both the techniques but in MICS the cut and the pain in less and the patient is discharged from the hospital early,” said Dr. Gaurav Goyal Senior Consultant Cardiac Surgeon.
The team of doctors performed 15 successful surgeries in the last two and half months in which 9 are females and 6 males. “The surgery is a boon for the heart patients as after the surgery the patients had less pain, Infection reduces, less bleeding, less time on ventilator and less stay in the hospital. The smaller cut in this surgery gives the patient a cosmetic advantage as the cut is not visible much,” said Dr. Goyal.
