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. The team at The Keyhole Heart Clinic have been performing heart surgery for more than 15 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, meaning that you can get back to your life much quicker.

The Keyhole Heart Clinic

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.

What Our Patients Say

Specialist Surgery
A New Technique

At The Keyhole Heart Clinic, we specialise in minimally invasive keyhole heart surgery. Keyhole heart surgery London is a new technique and requires a different skillset to traditional heart surgery, so must be carried out by a specialist cardiologist. Therefore, we ensure that we have the best cardiologist London has to offer to perform the surgery, Mr Inderpaul Birdi, who specialises in this type of procedure. Not every candidate is applicable for minimally invasive keyhole heart surgery, but where possible, we would recommend this type of surgery for every patient for whom it is safe and feasible. Please note that during your consultation we will assess you to see if you are suitable for the surgery and if it is the best option for your health.

Keyhole

Keyhole heart surgery London is completed through small incisions to the chest or groin by a skilled cardiologist London, rather than necessitating a full breastbone division.
Because traditional heart surgery included breastbone division (and, on top of heart surgery, you are essentially dealing with a broken bone), it is a major surgery, and requires a long time to heal. With keyhole surgery, it is much more minimally invasive, and as such does not take months to recover from – instead, you should completely be back to ‘normal life’ within a few weeks.
Because keyhole heart surgery only requires a few small incisions (and sometimes none at all), the cosmetic result is much more superior. Scarring is minimal and is coverable, meaning you can wear your normal clothes with no alterations necessary. With breastbone division, you will usually be left with a 12-inch scar, whereas with keyhole surgery, it will only be around 3 inches long.
Because keyhole heart surgery London does not require bones to be broken, there is no risk of bone infection
Due to the minimally invasive nature of keyhole surgery, the wound should heal within a week.
Keyhole heart surgery by a private cardiologist London means you will experience less pain than after traditional heart surgery. The fact no bones are broken during the surgery means you will experience less discomfort during recovery.
