In the past, open heart surgery for heart valve repair required opening the patient’s chest. Today, world-class surgeons at Baylor College of Medicine use minimally invasive techniques to make small “keyhole” incisions, which result in shorter surgeries, reduced hospital stays, faster healing and minimal scarring. As members of a health sciences university, our surgeons continue to perfect minimally invasive procedures as well as look at the future of cardiac care.
