Bypass surgery - MICS

My uncle is consulting Apollo Bangalore for heart blockages and he's told to undergo the latest MICS technique heart surgery by Dr. Sathyaki Nambala. He's just a little concerned about this new technique and is constantly worried about the outcome. Since it's a new technique, not many reviews r available online and therefore I chose practo to see if some doctor can give his view on the same. About the risks and is there any particular aspect the patient should be concerned about? Should he go ahead with the new procedure or opt for the conventional method. Awaiting all possible replies. Thanks in advance.
