Patient Story: Cardiac Robotics as an Alternative to Open Heart Surgery

Barry Chaney is an Emory Heart & Vascular Center patient and Emory Healthcare employee who after having chest pains while working out was told he had to have cardiac bypass surgery to relieve blockages in his heart.

Barry chose the robotic approach to surgery as opposed to traditional cardiac open heart surgery because of the less invasive nature and faster recovery time associated with robotic surgery.  Barry returned to work after 3 weeks and is now back to living an active life!
