Dr Casula on minimal access:

"Robotic-enhanced and Minimal access cardiac surgery provides a huge number of benefits for the patient including just a small amount of scarring, less pain (and less use of pain killers), a reduced chance of post-operative infection and blood transfusion, and importantly, quicker mobilization speeding along a good physical and emotional recovery."
