Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS)

MICS or Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery is performed through making several small incisions instead of traditional methods like open surgery.

Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR)

Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair or TEVAR is a minimally invasive procedure, that would repair the major blood vessel in the body, called aorta. To repair any dysfunction of aorta, the surgeon inserts stent graft through a minimal incision made in the groin region. The metal-mesh device repairs the aorta and keeps it open allowing good flow of oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. It is done if the patient is suffering either from stenosis, aneurysm, transection and dissection.
