Saint Joseph's Adds Renowned Cardiothoracic Surgeon
Date:2/2/2009

World Leader For Robotic, Totally-Endoscopic Coronary Artery Bypasses (Tecab)

ATLANTA Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Sudhir P. Srivastava, MD, the pioneer and world leader in performing beating heart, totally-endoscopic, coronary artery bypass surgeries, has joined the staff at Saint Joseph's Hospital in Atlanta. Dr. Srivastava comes to Atlanta from the University of Chicago Medical Center where he served as assistant professor of surgery and director of robotic and minimally invasive cardiac surgery.

"Dr. Srivastava's expertise in robotic coronary revascularization, combined with Dr. Douglas Murphy's expertise in intracardiac robotic surgery, means patients will have access to physicians of unparalled surgical talent and experience in the full spectrum of robotic cardiothoracic surgery at Saint Joseph's," says Kirk Wilson, president and CEO of Saint Joseph's Health System. "Minimally-invasive, closed chest cardiac surgery is becoming the standard of care and we are extraordinarily pleased to expand our program to include Dr. Srivastava and his team."

Dr. Srivastava is one of the world's most experienced cardiac robotic surgeons having performed more than 900 robotic cardiothoracic surgical procedures since 2002, of which 350 have been single and multi-vessel beating heart, totally-endoscopic coronary bypass. TECAB is done through four or five fingertip-size incisions and is associated with functional recovery in days rather than months compared to the other traditional approaches. Dr. Srivastava performed the first beating heart TECAB in the U.S. in 2003 and since then has continued to advance multi-vessel TECAB. He has numerous world's firsts in robotic and minimally-invasive cardiac surgery and has unmatched expertise in obtaining bilateral internal mammary arteries using the robotic surgical system.
