The cardiac surgery department of Satguru Partap Singh Apollo Hospitals, Ludhiana, has introduced multi-vessel beating heart coronary artery bypass surgery, using Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) technique.

The full range of MICS surgery is now available on regular basis at the hospital. ""Major advantages of MICS surgery is very early return to active life, with minimal pain and need for painkillers. Requirement of blood, hospital stay and chances of infection are significantly low as compared to the older technique,"" said Dr K C Mukherjee, Senior Consultant, Department of Cardio Surgery. Rashpal Singh, 78, had suffered a heart attack a few months ago and his angiography revealed critical coronary artery disease requiring bypass surgery. Dr.Mukherjee said his team performed a surgery on him and the patient was discharged within five days.
