Prior to recent advancements in cardiac operations, surgeons required scalpels, saws and surgical chest spreaders to open the chest wall, which brings with it many other complications and risks. Today’s 3D imaging technology has enabled doctors like Dr. Padaliya, MD, a physician in the HonorHealth Cardiovascular Center of Excellence, to view the regions of the heart and surrounding blood vessels from the inside.
"Minimally invasive surgery has come a long way in recent years, and we are excited to be at the forefront of these procedures," Padaliya said. "Our Deer Valley neighbors can rest easy knowing their neighborhood hospital not only offers state-of-the-art healthcare, but also works diligently to ensure that the care they receive is personal, affordable and simple."
