Many cardiac patients can benefit from newer, minimally invasive surgical techniques to repair your heart. OHSU Knight Cardiovascular Institute heart surgeons are experts in minimally invasive cardiac procedures, performed through one or more small incisions rather than traditional open heart surgery.
Benefits of minimally invasive heart surgery include:
- Less pain and discomfort
- Lower risk of infection
- Shorter recovery times
Minimally invasive surgical options to treat heart conditions include:
- Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
- Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)
- Percutaneous (transcatheter) heart valve implantation
- Heart valve repair and replacement
