    Our most common procedure is Coronary Bypass surgery, however we are world leaders in particular cardiac surgeries:

    Heart valve repairs

    Our surgeons have extensive experience in aortic valve repairs, and we are pioneering the thoracoscopic assisted open-heart surgery, the “Heartport” system, and many other low-invasive systems. These safer techniques are the first steps towards true robotic surgery.

    Aortic aneurysm
