Minimally invasive septal myectomy for HOCM

Surgery is an effective treatment for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). Minimally invasive HOCM septal resection/myectomy takes that one step further and uses robotic assistance to provide:

  • Much-improved surgical view than traditional open-heart surgery.
  • More accurate and complete septal resection.
  • Easy access to valve repair during the same surgery, if needed.
  • Small incisions, which reduce the risk of infection and speed your recovery.
  • No need to divide the sternum, reducing your pain and recovery time.

Dr. Thomas Molloy has saved hundreds of patients from unnecessary open-heart procedures (sternotomy) by performing robotic septal resections when appropriate for their condition, including:

  • Ventricular septal hypertrophy
  • Idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis
  • Idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic septal obstruction

In the following video, Dr. Molloy will walk you through the symptoms and treatments of HOCM and give you a firsthand view of how robotic-assisted septal resection is a safe and superior surgical solution for many people with HOCM.
