The first in San Diego to offer minimally invasive heart surgery.
Using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, Sharp-affiliated cardiac surgeons can now provide less-invasive treatment for patients with mitral valve repair and septal defects. With robotic-assisted surgery, patients experience less scarring and shorter recovery times compared to traditional surgery.
