I know of a site where you can watch an entire surgery and get a better feel for the procedure, heartbypass.org/robotic-heart-bypass-surgery-video.php, sorry for the situation but the more you learn the better

Alternate methods of minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery have been developed in recent times. Off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (OPCAB) is a technique of performing bypass surgery without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (the heart-lung machine). Further refinements to OPCAB have resulted in minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass surgery (MIDCAB), a technique of performing bypass surgery through a 5 to 10 cm incision.Source(s): http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/00... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CABG http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot-assisted_heart_... http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&q=Robot-assis...
