Minimally invasive surgery shortens the recovery time from heart surgery from approximately 3 months down to 3 weeks, although some recover faster than this and some recover slower. Prospective patients will find a wealth of information here to aid in their decision making when choosing their surgeon. Here are some examples and descriptions of Mr Modi’s areas of expertise in the field of minimally invasive cardiac surgery. These demonstrate how he applies the latest pioneering techniques from the US and Europe to minimize the surgical access sites and thus achieve a more comfortable and rapid recovery for his patients. Please also have a look at the patients’ stories pages to read first-hand accounts of what it was like recovering from minimally invasive heart valve surgery.
