As techniques in cardiac surgery continue to improve, the minimal invasive approach is providing benefits to the cardiac surgical patient. We report a case of a 24 year old gentleman with diagnosis of rheumatic heart disease with severe mitral stenosis that underwent mitral valve replacement via minimal invasive approach on beating heart. His post operative course was uneventful and he has been on regular follow up now. The advantages and disadvantages of the procedure are discussed here. Keywords: Heart, mitral valve, thoracotomy
