Overview:

Dr. James Gammie, a cardiac surgeon at the University of Maryland Medical Center and associate professor of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, describes how robotic surgery can be used in place of open heart surgery to perform an aortic valve bypass.

Dr. Gammie explains how robotic surgery allows patients who wouldn't normally be candidates for surgery get the treatment they need. He also explains the differences between aortic valve bypass surgery and aortic valve replacement.
