Modern heart surgery should strive toward the most durable therapeutic results and enhanced patient recoveries. Novel customized technology is available to advance the evolution of less invasive heart valve replacement surgery and ultimately facilitate “microinvasive” techniques utilizing very small bone-sparing incisions and endoscopy. In this article, we present our approach to aortic valve replacement, including the use of automated suturing devices to improve the surgical ergonomics and reliability of these procedures. This patient-centered approach can be safely performed by surgeons interested in offering the benefits of truly minimally invasive cardiac surgery to improve patient outcomes. We believe that each patient should be offered personalized surgery to provide the optimized procedure and aortic valve replacement to suit their individual needs and preferences.
