Heart Bypass Surgery

Heart Bypass Surgery

What Is By Pass Surgery?

Heart Bypass Surgery, also known as Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery, sometimes called CABG (cabbage), or simply “Bypass Surgery” is a safe and effective way of surgically treating the symptoms of coronary artery disease.

Heart Bypass Surgery is a procedure that reroutes the blood around a blockage in the coronary artery, creating an alternative pathway for blood to deliver important nutrients and oxygen to the heart muscle.

The arteries that bring blood to the heart muscle can become clogged by plaque (a buildup of fat, cholesterol and other substances). This can slow or stop blood flow through the heart’s blood vessels, leading to chest pain or a heart attack. Increasing blood flow, by undergoing a Heart Bypass procedure can relieve chest pain and reduce the risk of heart attack. A patient may undergo one, two, three or more bypass grafts, depending on how many coronary arteries are blocked.

Coronary Bypass Surgery remains one of the gold standard surgical treatments for coronary artery disease. Success rates of an astonishing 99.8% are achieved with one of our partner hospitals.


Are there alternative treatment options?

In some patients, alternative treatment of coronary artery disease includes medical therapy with specific medication or non-surgical treatment such as Balloon Angioplasty, Laser Angioplasty, Stents or Atherectomy (plaque removal). Our Cardiologist will help decide which treatment is best for you.



Over the years, cardiac surgeons around the world have refined their approach to Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery.

Several approaches have been developed in performing Heart Bypass procedures, widening the patient candidacy and increasing the mortality rates, thereby providing rewarding results. Our surgeons are highly skilled in determining the best approach for each patient's Bypass Surgery, taking into account the number and location of blocked vessels, the patient's prior history of heart surgery, and other factors such as age and co-existing conditions.
