“Off Pump” Coronary Bypass Surgery​

We’re often able to perform bypass surgery “off pump” — a procedure in which the heart is not stopped and the patient is not placed on a cardiopulmonary bypass machine (or heart-lung machine). This technique, under the skilled hands of our surgeon, decreases the patient’s time under anesthesia and, often, the length of their hospital stay. The procedure also reduces the risk of stroke, renal failure, and bleeding.
