• 100% off-pump (to prevent the mishaps of the “pump”, for shorter ICU and hospital stays, and for a quick return to normal lifestyle.)
  • 100% arterial grafts (for better longevity of the operation)
  • Aortic no-touch operation (unlike conventional coronary bypass, where “touching” the aorta may result in neurologic damage)
  • Minimally invasive operation (without opening the chest completely) in selected cases.
  • Awake surgery in selected patients (for patients who cannot have general anesthesia, or for patients who desire an extremely short hospital stay).
