Noted New York Cardiothoracic Surgeon Joseph McGinn, M.D., Chairman and Director of Surgery at Staten Island University Hospital and The Heart Institute, and the developer of the breakthrough minimally invasive bypass technique, MICS CABG (The McGinn Technique), was a guest speaker and lecturer on the topic of minimally invasive bypass surgery at this year’s Re-evolution Summit IV —Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery: The Ultimate Hands-on Summit.
The conference was recently held at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. The goal of the Re-evolution Summit IV conference provided up-to-date evidence-based didactic lectures along with expert-instructed, hands-on exposure to the latest in all aspects of minimal access cardiac surgery with an emphasis on hybrid approaches.
Dr. McGinn said, “It was an honor to speak at this year’s Re-evolution Summit IV. It was truly a one-of-kind learning experience for physicians who were looking to advance in the area of minimally invasive cardiac procedures.”
Dr. McGinn added, “Minimally invasive techniques have changed the face of cardiac surgery and new advancements are being made all the time. It’s imperative that we continue to share our ever-growing knowledge of minimally invasive surgery to better serve the rising number of cardiac patients.”
Over the course of the two-day conference, Dr. McGinn, was joined by an elite panel of speakers, as well as physicians who provided hands-on training in the Skills Academy. Attendees learned a broad spectrum of sophisticated minimally invasive cardiac techniques, including the procedure developed by Dr. McGinn, MICS CABG.

Hospital and The Heart Institute. He performed the first-ever MICS/CABG procedure
