Safe: A good preoperative evaluation help by a cardiology risk assessment on the severity of your disease will help the surgeon and anesthesiology to plan an anesthetic specifically for you. He do not have cook books. We will monitor you during the operation and after the operation according to your specific condition. And we will make it safe for you. There will be risk involve but we will minimize it.

See below: Patient's with coronary artery disease have surgery every day in the us. The best way to deal with this is to talk to your anesthesiologist before the operation and discuss your case. A trained anesthesiologist will be able to tailor an anesthetic that is safe for you. Good luck.
