Gundersen Lutheran Offers Heart Surgery with Less Pain, Faster Recovery
Date:12/8/2011

LA CROSSE, Wis., Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Prem Rabindranauth, MD, a heart surgeon at Gundersen Lutheran Health System in La Crosse, Wis., is using an exciting technique, called minimally invasive coronary surgery (MICS), to perform heart bypass surgery. To perform MICS, a very small three-inch cut is made between the ribs instead of the long cut through the breast bone that is needed with traditional open heart surgery. This means less pain and blood loss, fewer risks for problems, shorter hospital stays and quicker healing time.

Gundersen Lutheran is one of the few hospitals in the nation using the MICS approach to do up to three or four bypass repairs in a single surgery. Surgeons at Gundersen Lutheran have also used the minimally invasive approach for heart valve repair, and have even done a successful double minimally invasive surgery in which a valve repair was done from the right side of the chest and bypass from the left side.

"Patients having minimally invasive heart surgery at Gundersen Lutheran are spending fewer days in the hospital compared to patients who have traditional open heart surgery," comments Dr. Rabindranauth. "Also, because MICS patients have a smaller incision, there is less risk of infection and they are recovering in about half the time, so they can return to work and other ac
