Tricuspid Valve Surgery
Minimally Invasive Procedure
Tricuspid valve repair and tricuspid valve replacement are procedures that treat diseases affecting the tricuspid valve. The tricuspid valve is one of four valves that regulate blood flow through the heart. These valves keep blood flowing in the right direction through the heart. When the tricuspid valve isn't working properly, it can interfere with the proper direction of blood flow and force the heart to work harder to supply the necessary blood to the lungs and the rest of your body.
Why Mr. Paul Modi?
Mr Paul Modi is one of a handful of surgeons in the UK who performs minimally invasive keyhole heart surgeries and the only surgeon performing robotic heart surgery. He was one of the pioneer surgeons to perform a Totally Endoscopic Robotic Mitral Valve Repair in the UK.
Patients travel from all over the world for the surgical excellence of Mr. Modi.
He is one of a few cardiac surgeons worldwide who has been formally trained in the leading North American and German heart centres by all three of the surgeons who pioneered minimally invasive mitral valve surgery over 15 years ago.
He is a national and international trainer (proctor) in many of these techniques.
Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery
Minimally Invasive techniques provide a huge number of benefits for patients such as minimal scarring, less pain and a reduced chance of post-operative wound infections, and they shorten the recovery period from open-heart surgery from about 3 months down to about 3 weeks.

After my heart surgery within 6 weeks I was embarking upon a 30 hour journey to Brazil.
I was back playing 18 holes on the golf course one week after my keyhole mitral valve repair.
