Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Minimally Invasive Surgeries in Los Angeles

Azmi Atiya MD is specialty trained in various types of minimally invasive surgery for diseases impacting the chest, heart, lungs, and esophagus. Unlike traditional surgical procedures such as open heart surgery, minimally invasive procedures will involve very small incision points. This surgical technique allows our cardiovascular surgeon to perform surgical procedures without having to break through the ribs or the breastplate to access the organs in the thoracic cavity.

Some of our minimally invasive surgery procedures include:

In most instances, patients will be able to return home shortly after a surgical procedure, sometimes as quickly as 2 to 5 days. To ensure optimal and swift recovery, all surgery patients will receive a follow-up assessment with our surgeon within 1 to 2 weeks immediately following discharge from the hospital.

There are countless benefits to this type of surgical technique – and many of these benefits are appealing to individuals suffering with minor to moderate heart, chest, esophagus, or lung diseases.

  • Less pain
  • Smaller incision points
  • Less scarring (or less noticeable)
