Every day, advancements are being made in the field of heart surgery. Advanced technology
is making surgery easier and safer, and recovery faster and less painful. Beaumont doctors are advancing the science of heart surgery with new and innovative techniques for minimally invasive procedures,
leading edge technologies, and clinical trials that reduce recovery times and generally help make heart surgery less difficult for patients.
Open heart surgery used to be the only way to perform surgery on the heart, but with the help of technology, more and more conditions are being treated with minimally invasive heart procedures. Beaumont physicians were the first in the Midwest to complete
several advanced heart procedures, and that spirit of innovation continues to thrive today. For example, Beaumont is a pioneer in less invasive techniques to perform valve replacement surgery. We were the first hospital in U.S. to replace an aortic valve with
a catheter through a small incision in the leg.
