Getting comfortable with minimally invasive cardiac surgery

As minimally invasive surgical techniques become more widely available, how can cardiothoracic surgeons prepare themselves, healthcare teams and their patients?

Three experts, including Dr. Todd K. Rosengart, professor and chair of Baylor College of Medicine’s Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, join members of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons roundtable at the society’s annual meeting to address important and relevant issues in the cardiothoracic surgery community.

The panel examines what “minimally invasive” means and how surgeon can be trained and become more comfortable with minimally invasive procedures. They also discuss the importance of surgeons’ commitment to a minimally invasive philosophy.
