Yashoda Hospitals has performed innumerable surgeries and treatment procedures for cardiothoracic diseases. The success rate of our procedures has made us one of the best hospitals for heart failure treatment in Hyderabad.
Robotic-assisted Cardiothoracic Surgery: This is a type of heart surgery in which several small incisions are made in the chest with the use of small instruments and robot-controlled tools. It is a less invasive surgery as compared to open-heart surgery. These are usually performed for valve surgery, coronary artery bypass, repairs of heart defects, as well as for tumor removal. The major advantage is that recovery from this surgery is quicker than other surgeries. The precision at which such surgeries are performed in Yashoda Hospitals is impeccable, hence we are regarded as the finest hospital for heart transplant in Hyderabad.

- Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Repair Or Replacement
- Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Replacement
- Minimally Invasive ASD closures / SV ASD repairs
Endoscopic Vein Harvesting Surgery: It is usually used in conjunction with bypass surgery in which the surgeon makes a small incision on the skin near the saphenous vein.
Congenital Cardiac Repairs: The department performs various repair surgeries such as:
- ASD Closures/SV ASD Repair
- VSD Closure/ Valve Repairs
- Tetralogy of Fallot Correction / Intracardiac Repair

1. What does a minimally invasive heart bypass surgery mean?
A minimally invasive bypass surgery refers to the process in which the heart is bypassed and a new route is created for the blood and oxygen to reach the heart without stopping the heart.
2. Is there a difference between bypass surgery and open-heart surgery?
Heart bypass surgery is a type of open-heart surgery, in which the surgeon cuts open the chest to reach the heart, and then performs the surgery either on-pump or off-pump.
3. What are the most common complications after open-heart surgery?
The most common complications associated with open-heart surgery are chest wound infections, heart attack, stroke, arrhythmia, lung, or kidney failure.
4. What is the advantage of robot-assisted cardiac surgery?
The biggest advantage of robot-assisted surgery for cardiothoracic procedures is that smaller incisions are made in the process, so the healing is much faster than other surgeries.
