Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Bypass Graft: MICS CABG Procedure

Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute | Baptist Health South Florida is fortunate to have one of the world's foremost experts in the minimally invasive coronary artery bypass graft (MICS CABG). Joseph Thomas McGinn, MD, our chief of cardiac surgery, helped pioneer this beating heart procedure and has trained hundreds of surgeons around the world in what is likely to become tomorrow's standard of care.  The technique, which carries Dr. McGinn's name, has many advantages. Patients have similar outcomes to the conventional procedure, but with the added benefits of eliminating the median sternotomy and associated morbidities, avoiding the heart-lung machine, shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery times, fewer post-op physical restrictions and they won’t have a scar down their chest.
