Patients Recover Faster After Robotic Heart Surgery
By Dana Arschin
Dr. T. Sloane Guy appears on FOX 5 to discuss the benefits of using robotics for heart surgery and highlights a patient who had a successful outcome. Dr. Guy does about 100 robotic heart surgeries a year and his goal is to more than double that number. He said the problem is that not enough patients know that this type of surgery exists and next spring he will be organizing a training for doctors across the country.
