Only Heart Surgeon in Utah to Leverage Robotic Technology
At Ogden Regional Medical Center, a state-of-the-art robotic surgical system helps specialists to perform more precise, less invasive surgeries. As a result, their patients experience less trauma, reduced pain and minimal scarring.
Robotic surgery has been successfully used in thousands of minimally invasive procedures worldwide. Now, a local surgeon is utilizing robotic technology to perform several cardiothoracic procedures at Ogden Regional Medical Center.
Joseph Graham, M.D. is the only cardiothoracic surgeon in Utah to leverage the benefits of robotic technology to enhance certain types of cardiovascular and lung procedures, including the following:
- Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
- Mitral valve repair/replacement
- Patent Forma Ovale (PFO)
- Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)
- Single vessel small thoracotomy
- Pericardial cyst removal
- Pacemaker leads
- Lung lobe removal
- Lung tumor removal
- Lung biopsy
- Chest lymph node biopsy
After more than 25 years in practice, Dr. Graham is very experienced in endovascular, heart and thoracic surgeries. He is well-versed in all forms of heart surgery including traditional, minimally invasive and robotic-assisted approaches. Of course, robotic surgery is not the right approach for every patient who needs a cardiothoracic procedure. That is why Dr. Graham is available to collaborate with you and review individual patient cases.
When you and your physician are considering robotic surgery as an option, schedule a consultation with Dr. Graham by calling 866.887.5384.
