Artificial heart valve surgery involves replacing an abnormal or diseased heart valve with an artificial one.

Atherectomy

An atherectomy is a procedure in which excess plaque is cut from an artery using a rotating shaver.

Bypass surgery

Bypass surgery involves creating alternative paths for blood flow to the heart using arteries and veins from other parts of the body.

Minimally invasive heart surgery

Minimally invasive heart surgery is performed through small incisions as an alternative to open heart surgery.

Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure in which an electrode is used to burn small amounts of heart muscle. This treats excessively rapid and irregular beating.
