There are only a handful of surgeons who perform it, but if you do need minimally invasive bypass surgery, have it done by the teacher and not the students
Staten Island, New York (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Rowan Mullings, a businessman from Kingston, Jamaica, flew to New York last December to have bypass surgery at the The Heart Institute at Staten Island University Hospital. Choosing a hospital that performed Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (MICS CABG) was not easy, but it was imperative for Mullings to find a procedure with a fast recovery time so he could get back to work.
In early 2012, Mullings learned that he had blocked arteries and needed bypass surgery. Unfortunately, Jamaica’s hospitals didn’t offer minimally invasive bypass surgery – a procedure that his cardiologist recommended. As he explored the many options outside of his homeland, he found The McGinn Technique offered at The Heart Institute and several other heart centers like Cleveland Clinic, Vanderbilt Heart Institute in Nashville and The Methodist Hospital in Houston.
Mullings took comfort in the patient and doctor videos he watched on The Heart Institute’s website, specifically the video that featured Dr. Joseph T. McGinn, cardiothoracic surgeon who is the Medical Director at The Heart Institute. His research led him to choose Dr. McGinn’s procedure for his bypass surgery. The McGinn Technique presented Mullings with many attractive benefits. The most important of which was the fast recovery time, which was a critical deciding factor.
Dr. McGinn, developer and pioneer of the Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (MICS CABG or The McGinn Technique), performed Mullings’ surgery. MICS CABG can provide patients with less pain and trauma as compared to traditional open-heart surgery. In addition, the procedure has an incidence of lower infection rates and complications.
“Anybody that has the option of having MICS CABG versus the traditional open heart surgical approach should consider this procedure here at The Heart Institute. There are only a handful of surgeons who perform it, but if you do need minimally invasive bypass surgery, have it done by the teacher and not the students,” expressed Mulling.
