Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery
If you have a heart condition such as mitral valve prolapse, ask your doctor about minimally invasive da Vinci Robotic Surgery at St. Elizabeth Healthcare. Using the da Vinci Surgical System, our surgeons operate through a few small incisions so you can avoid a large chest incision. Our robotic systems feature a magnified 3D HD vision system and special instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. These features enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
