Learning that you need open heart surgery can be a daunting experience in itself, never mind the fact that you are likely to be told that you need your breast bone split, and that it will take 3 months to heal. Mr Inderpaul Birdi and the team at The Keyhole Heart Clinic have been performing heart surgery for more than 17 years using keyhole approaches without breaking your breastbone, meaning that the cuts we make heal in days, are cosmetically more appealing, cause less pain and infection, so that you can get back to your life much quicker.
Our professional and experienced team at The Keyhole Heart Clinic provide advice and treatment to those with heart conditions, including blocked arteries and valve disorders. Whether you require a consultation to discuss keyhole heart surgery as an option for yourself, or you would like a second opinion to get reassurance about your treatment choices, we can ensure you get the help you need. With our team lead by a highly experienced cardiothoracic surgeon, Mr Inderpaul Birdi, specialising in minimally invasive heart surgery, you can be sure that you are in the best hands at our clinic.
Recover Faster With Our World Leading Keyhole Heart Surgery
You may not realise that keyhole heart surgery is now a proven procedure and is very safe in expert hands. It is also known as minimally invasive or minimal access heart surgery. You heal within days rather than months and the scars are much smaller than with traditional methods. The best thing is, you can get back to enjoying your life much sooner than with traditional breastbone surgery.
