Michael P. Macris, MD, F.A.C.S.
Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon
Dr. Michael P. Macris is recognized in the medical profession for his participation in the advancement of surgical techniques that greatly improve the level of positive patient outcomes. He is a leader in the development and use of effective Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass (OPCAB) surgical techniques. OPCAB, or “beating heart” surgery, eliminates the need for a heart/lung machine to keep the patient’s heart beating during bypass surgery. OPCAB has had a significant impact on the rate of positive surgical outcomes and on the cost-effectiveness of cardiovascular care, because it can significantly reduce the risk of stroke and other complications that often result from conventional surgical techniques.
