Heart surgery corrects problems that no longer respond to other treatments. Open heart surgery is an effective part of our cardiac treatment and surgery program at American Hospital Dubai, which helps improve heart health and prevent future heart problems.
Open-heart surgery is a delicate procedure of cutting open the chest to operate on the heart muscles, valves, or arteries. During the surgery, the heart is stopped while the patient is attached to a heart-lung bypass machine that performs the functions of the heart and lungs by transporting oxygen to the blood, carrying blood through the body, and removing carbon dioxide.
Open-heart surgery is performed to address problems like heart failure, plaque accumulation interrupting the flow of blood in a coronary artery, valvular heart diseases, abnormalities in blood vessels such as the aorta, and irregular heart rhythms. The operation is also carried out to repair or replace heart valves, treat damaged areas of the heart, implant ventricular-assisted devices, and transplant the heart.
American Hospital Dubai is proud to host a team of experienced cardiac surgeons who specialize in performing the most advanced surgical procedures for a wide range of cardiac conditions from congenital heart conditions to coronary artery disease, aortic disorders to atrial fibrillation, and heart failure to heart valve diseases.
Our heart surgeons recommend the following types of open-heart surgery when other interventional cardiology procedures seem ineffective:
Following the surgery, the patients are retained in the hospital for several days and recuperated at home for a couple of weeks before they are allowed to return to their normal activity. Our heart-care team makes sure to keep in touch with the patient even after the surgery, and creates a personalized cardiac rehabilitation plan that helps them resume their everyday activities gradually but safely.
The cardiac surgery program at American Hospital Dubai is one of the nation’s leading programs providing a wide range of surgical treatments including both traditional open-heart surgery and minimally invasive procedures to treat conditions of the heart, lungs, and chest.
