Beating heart surgery | Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur

Beating heart surgery


We crossed another medical milestone on 15th Feb 2023, where our doctors performed a bypass surgery, or CABG, on a heart that was still beating.

That’s right, the heart was still beating during the bypass surgery. (Conventional bypass would neccesitate the cessation of heart function during surgery).

Our patient, Madam Ler pictured together with our cardiothoracic surgeons, Datuk Dr. Abdul Rahman (second from right) and Dr. Adli Azam, is asking for discharge just 3 days after the bypass surgery.

In Gleneagles Hospital Johor, we are home to various sub-specialist consultants and team of dedicated clinical supports equipped with latest technologies to provide unparalleled quality in healthcare.
