What procedures do you perform?
Peninsula Regional CV Surgical performs cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, including revolutionary procedures like endoscopic vein harvest, transmyocardial revascularlization (TMR), beating-heart valve surgery and minimally invasive surgery.
 
Can minimally invasively heart surgery be performed?
Minimally invasive techniques may be used to perform bypass surgery, valvular surgery and many cardiac procedures. Minimally invasive and even robotic techniques using the daVinci Surgical Robot may be used to perform certain surgeries. Depending on the surgery and the patient, bypass surgery, valvular surgery and many cardiac procedures can be performed with minimal incisions.
 
What can I do to reduce my risk of heart disease?
Everyone should exercise and eat right, but you should also have the appropriate screenings with your physician, including regular checks of blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and BMI (body mass index). And if you smoke, you should take steps to quit, as smoking is a major risk factor for heart disease.
