Description: Cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Will Clements, will discuss how he performs heart surgery, such as mitral valve repair, with the da Vinci robot. Unlike traditional heart surgery, where the patient’s breast bone must be broken for the incision, the da Vinci robot allows the surgeon to reach the patient’s heart through a small 3-inch incision between the ribs on the patient’s right side. The da Vinci will be there, so you can “test drive” it yourself. The smaller incision means less pain and generally half the recovery time. Come to this program and learn about this less invasive procedure offered at St. Elizabeth.
