Many patients who need heart valve surgery are now leaving the hospital sooner, with less pain and scarring, thanks to advanced minimally invasive procedures offered at Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) in Gainesville (Georgia”s #1 Heart Hospital, according to HealthGrades#).
As one of a few surgeons in the nation who specialize in minimally invasive mitral valve reconstruction and minimally invasive aortic valve reconstruction, I”ve developed techniques to treat patients from across the U.S. and other parts of the world.# These procedures are my passion because they offer patients tremendous benefits versus traditional procedures, such as:
” #Shorter hospital stays
” #Quicker return to normal activities
” #Less pain and scarring
” #Less risk of infection
” #Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
You can learn more about these procedures, watch a surgery and hear real patients talk about their experiences at www.nghs.com/HeartValve.# You can also call my practice, Northeast Georgia Physicians Group Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery, at 770-219-7099 if you have any questions.
I”m excited to be part of an organization that”s dedicated to staying at the forefront of medical technology in order to provide exceptional patient care, and proud to have the opportunity to serve you so close to Gwinnett County.
