Coronary bypass

Coronary artery bypass surgery, also known as CABG (coronary artery bypass graft) is a surgical procedure that is performed in cases of severe coronary artery obstruction brought on by conditions such as atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis. As its name suggests, the goal of the intervention is to restore blood flow by bypassing the obstructed sections.

According to the American Heart Association’s guidelines, CABG is an effective treatment for LMCA disease, RCA, LAD and LCX pathologies and is the preferred treatment for high-risk patients suffering from severe LV dysfunction and/or diabetes.

The two most common techniques involve diverting the internal thoracic artery to the LAD branch and attaching a vein from the patient’s foot to the aorta (or one of its branches) on one side and the obstructed artery (after the obstructed section).

Sample Program


  • Blood tests (CBC, SMAC, lipid profile, coagulation factors, electrolyte levels)
  • Stress echocardiography
  • 24-hour Holter monitoring
  • Senior cardiologist consultation
  • Diagnostic coronary angiogram

The aforementioned investigations can be completed within 4 business days.


Cost of surgery depends on the type of surgery performed and extent of intervention required. However, on average, the cost of CABG in Israel is about 3 times lower in Israel than in the US. Normally, the price will include up to 7 days of hospitalization, intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring, as well as postoperative monitoring by the operating surgeon and treating cardiologist.

Provided there are no complications, you can expect to be cleared to travel back home approximately two weeks following your discharge.
