in Grant, FL |
I had a heart attack in 2015, an unsuccessful cardio cath 3/15, and in 4/15 Dr. Keyser performed a quintuple-bypass (CABGx5) at Holmes Regional Medical Center. There was anxiety and worry on my part, initially. However, immediately after Dr. Keyser first spoke to me, I was at ease. This procedure is so finely-tuned I felt as if It was choreographed. No member of the surgical team steps left, or turns right, without premeditation. I was at Publix shopping 72 hours after surgery. Brilliant!

Procedures Performed

Dr. Keyser says..

Dr. Keyser's clinical focus of expertise is in minithoracotomy adult cardiothoracic surgery, advanced heart valve repair, off-pump coronary bypass grafting, and complex cardiac surgery.  He performs all of his heart valve surgery through a minithoracotomy using robotic shaft instruments.  Similar minithoracotomy techniques are now used in about half of all open-heart valve surgery operations in Western Europe, including France and Germany.
