Leaders in Robot/Port Access Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery 

You can take heart in knowing that Northside Hospital is a leader in the Southeast for minimally-invasive robotic procedures. An expertly trained cardiac surgeon performs the heart procedure in robot-assisted heart surgery. The main advantage of robot-assisted surgery is the incision can be much smaller, and the surgeon only needs three tiny holes rather than large incisions. Robot-assisted surgery has been studied extensively and is found to be an excellent alternative to open-heart surgery, resulting in reduced pain, fewer complications and faster healing for most people.
