Got TAVR procedure done at Fortis Escorts on 23/4/2019.

Done by Dr. Ashok Seth and Dr. Vijay Kumar. The procedure done was very painless and good. Overall i am extremely satisfied.

All Doctors, nurses and attendants etc were very good and helpful. Always with smiling face. Overall extremely good experience.



I am son of Mrs. Madhuri Sinha ( Age-69). She was suffering from Mitral valve decease. She was not fit for open heart surgery. We met with Dr Vijay Kumar, we came to know that the Mitral Valve needs to be replaced. He advised TVMR as she was fragile, old and weak. TVMR does not require open heart surgery and the valve can be changed without high risk surgery. TVMR procedure was done on 30th June 2019 by Dr.Ashok Seth, Dr.Vijay Kumar and team. Dr.Seth met us before the procedure started and met us again after he successfully completed the procedure. TVMR surgery performed in an hour and my mother was transferred from ICU in 24 Hours. In three days, she was discharged from hospital.

Now i can see that she is recovering and very soon she will enjoy life at the fullest. I sincerely thank Dr.Seth and Dr.Vijay Kumar for all case and concern. A very special thanks to Dr.Vijay Kumar for everything. All the best to him for his bright future.

We had a very good experience with TMVR. My father already had one open heart surgery in 2010 and that procedure and experience was very scary. Recovery period was also pretty long. But with TMVR, it looked like magic within half to one hour almost entire procedure was done and i was able to speak to my father almost immediately after TMVR. For our family TMVR is one of the biggest achievement of Medical Science.

We are very thankful to Dr. Ashok Seth and his entire team. The trust and belief with which we came to Dr. Seth has multiplied now. We wish him a very good luck.

Special thanks to Dr.Vijay and Mr.Ravi who helped us immensely and without their support, we probably wouldn't be able to understand details of TMVR.

I want to sincerely thank you for being such a great doctor. Before saying that you are an extraordinary doctor, I want to tell you that you are an extraordinary human being. Thanks for showing so much care and concern.

The very thought of hospitalisation is scary and traumatising, but caring doctors like u make it friendly and pleasing.

Thanks for your effective analysis and diagnosis. Else I would have never been able to continue living a life of bliss. I'm so humbled and grateful for your kind service.”

My heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Atul Mathur, a seasoned Cardiologist at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre, Okhla Road, New Delhi, for successfully performing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) for my mother, Smt. Shakuntala Jain on 05.07.2018. In her 83 years of age, she was a high-risk surgical case. Hats off to Dr. Atul Mathur for making it possible to relieve my mother from a major heart problem with this minimally invasive treatment novel procedure. He is truly a legend in all respects.

 I also thank Dr. Vijay, Dr. Ranjan Modi, Dr. Dole, TAVR Technicians Jitendar Chouhan and Yogesh, and the TAVR Nursing team of Mr. Mahesh and Ms. Liviya, for being integrally involved during the treatment procedure.

My few words of appreciation to the Cardiac Thoracic team of Fortis Escort Heart Institute, New Delhi.

The world has made fantastic achievements with modern technology. To achieve this technology one needs caliber, know-how and precision. At the Heart Institute – Dr. Ashok Seth, Dr. Vijay Kumar and their team, have achieved this technology. In my case, on a 76 year old man - the TAVI surgery was performed in less than 45 minutes and I was transferred from the ICU in less than 24 hrs. In 5 days I was discharged from the hospital.
These achievements need to be complimented to the TAVI team, the paramedical staff of the hospital, all the nurses, ward boys and everyone else involved.
My heartfelt thank you to Nitesh Kanojia and Meenakshi Kaar who competently managed everything to make this a success!
God Bless you all.

Heart surgery being considered risky and troublesome for recovery post operation, my father is subjected to least possible discomfort, thanks to TAVR and of course Dr. Seth and team. We were extremely surprised to see our father talking to us while being shifted to recovery post TAVR procedure. After the procedure, my father is feeling younger by 15 years with the disappearance of the previous discomfort and slight exertion.

 After the TAVR Dr. Ashok Seth and Dr. Vijay Kumar guided us throughout the process and despite being imminent cardiologist replied to all our queries to our utmost satisfaction.

Irrespective of the time of day, all our messages/queries were replied promptly by Dr. Vijay himself. We were briefed very well at each stage of TAVR and during our stay at the hospital by Dr. Ashok Seth and Dr. Vijay Kumar themselves. We convey our thanks to Dr. Ashok Seth and Dr. Vijay Kumar for giving our father a trouble-free life and great recovery.

TAVR and saved us the complication of open heart surgery. We, the family of patient- Vijay pal Jain salute the passion and dedication of Dr. Ashok Seth and Dr. Vijay Kumar in their work.

Both doctor (in fact angel to us) while informing us about the outcome of TAVR, were happier than us after the successful and perfect TAVR procedure each and every family member noticed the joy in the eyes of doctors, after the procedure. Lastly, we are thankful to Mr. Nitesh who helped us with admission, room allotment, and other administration work. Mr. Nitesh comes to help us with 15 min on every such request made by us.

My mother, Mrs. Rajashree Manjrekar, aged 63 yrs suffered from Aortic Stenosis, along with Liver Cirrhosis and Diabetes and was recommended TAVR by all the cardiologists we met in Mumbai. After doing a thorough research on the TAVR specialists in India, I got to know about Dr. Ashok Seth. 
He is regarded as one of the best interventional cardiologist in India, (esp. for TAVR) and my research was validated when other consultants too recommended Dr. Seth for TAVR. We reside in Mumbai and came down to Fortis Escorts Heart Institute (FEHI), to get the TAVR procedure done on my mother only from the able hands of Dr. Ashok Seth. 
Our faith in him was rewarded handsomely when Dr. Seth, supported by Dr. Vijay Kumar and the entire heart team at FEHI successful conducted the TAVR procedure on my mother on 30th Nov'17. 
Special thanks to Dr. Vijay Kumar, who guided us throughout our journey at FEHI and informed us of every development.
Mr. Nitesh Kanojia ensured we had a smooth admission and discharge at FEHI. Mr. Abhishek, Mr. Kaushik and Mr. Hemant helped us in billing formalities. The entire nursing staff at the ward and recovery station helped my mother recuperate well post tavr. Hospitality was excellent with clean sheets and washrooms. Food provided to my mother was nutritious, and was provided as recommended by doc to my mother. Also, thanks to Mr. Bhajan for providing me with an immediate appointment with Dr. Seth.
We had a truly memorable experience here, all thanks to the entire team at FEHI.

My father, Sri Om Prakash Goenka had undergone CABG + AVR in 2009. However, in beginning September, 2017 we came to know that the replaced aortic valve had de-generated and required replacement. As such, there were 2 options-First to undergo open-heart surgery and another TAVR. Since, my father is around 78 years and given his physical condition, open-heart surgery was ruled out. We consulted Dr Ashok Seth who advised TAVR procedure for my father. The procedure was successfully done on 10th October, 2017 and now my father is recovering from the weakness that he developed over the last few months of illness. He was discharged from the Hospital on 15th October, 2017.

We are extremely greatful to Dr Ashok Seth and Dr Vijay Kumar and their entire team for the successful treatment of my father, which was done without the nightmares of post-treatment recovery. The entire procedure hardly took 2 hours. It was like a miracle. Dr Seth met us before he started the procedure and met us again after he successfully completed the procedure. He explained to us about the patient`s heart condition and what he had done in TAVR. It was really heartening to hear the details from the Doctor himself, which is very rare in India. We are further, extremely greatful and indebted to Dr Vijay Kumar for the attention he provided to my father as well as the care he had taken during the entire stay in the hospital. We had an extremely good experience with the entire team. They were very co-operative and interactions with them eased out the tension we had with regard to my father`s illness. Special reference is required to be made to Mr Nitesh who managed and administered everything in the Hospital. Dr Modi and Dr Manish were always there to answer to all our queries that our inquisitiveness had. Mr Bhajan and Ms Meenakshi took care to ensure that my father did not wait long during his first visit to Dr Seth, as he was too weak to wait for long.

Thank you very much for the successful procedure and for taking care of my father.

I am daughter of Mrs. Krishna Sharma 74 years of age. She is suffering from Severe Aortic Stenosis with Severe LV dysfunction (EF- 30 %) since long. Due to this she feels breathlessness and pain and heaviness in chest. After consultation with Dr. Ashok Seth, we came to know that her Aortic Valve needs to be transplant.

Prior to TAVR procedure, my condition was very critical. Walking up to the restroom on my own seemed like a task to me. I used to feel fatigued and short of breath often. We were considering to opt for TAVR procedure since last January but an uncertain fear always stayed. But this time I made up my mind and took a rigid decision of going for TAVR. I wish I wouldn’t have delayed the treatment this long. Had I taken this decision last year itself, I wouldn’t have gone through all the pain I suffered. With Dr. Ashok Seth’s and Dr. Vijay Kumar’s medical intelligence and experience, I feel my life is back on track.

I had undergone a open heart surgery for Aortic Valve replacement is 2001 for narrowing of the aortic valve. The tissue valve failed about 8 months back. I started having breathlessness which gradually worsened. I was not able to walk, sleep or even eat well due to breathlessness. After TAVR all my symptoms resolved almost immediately. Due to my age, I thought it was a waste to spend so much money on a new procedure. After TAVR, I have completely changed my opinion. It was well worth it. Dr Ashok Sethi is simply great. Being a pioneer of TAVR in India, he has got the best experience in performing the procedure. Dr Vijay Kumar, Senior Cardiologist who is in-charge of TAVR program was so helpful and supportive from admission till discharge. He took great care regarding all the aspects of my health during my hospital stay. Having undergone both open heart surgery and TAVR, I can very well appreciate the difference. There is no comparison between the two. TAVR is just like a angiogram. I recovered in just 2 to 3 days.

I’m grateful to all the staff of each and every department who cared for me. Collectively, they all made my experience during my hospital stay, very nice. The TAVR team headed by stalwart Dr Ashok Seth and a great doctor Dr Vijay Kumar is doing a fantastic job here. To all those who are suffering from Aortic Valve problems similar to that of mine, I strongly recommend to seriously consider TAVR which is a lot safer procedure compared to open heart surgery. Finally, last but not the least, I need to mention about Dr Nitesh who coordinated everything very efficiently. I am much thankful to him.

Everything went very well with the procedure. I do understand that there will always be some discomfort with the preparatory process, especially the injection on the neck. However, I have been amazed with the recovery process. There was no pain by the next day and within two days I felt I was ‘back to normal’.

Dr. Seth is one of the doctors who is doing an excellent work in the most difficult field with a big smile, grace, and humility. There are few people like him. After being in touch with him for 10 days, I look upon him as one of my best friends and also with everlasting gratitude. I offer him best of luck.
P.S. The recovery has been phenomenal perhaps the best in the world. My son was amazed at the recovery. No one recovers in one day. I feel grateful to meet a man like him who possess such brilliance. Because brilliance is a rare quality and I salute him for it.

I am very happy to have undergone the TAVR procedure at the Fortis Escorts Heart Institute. The problem with my aortic  valve was discovered three years ago by Dr. Ashok Seth, and my condition has been monitored regularly since then, which clearly indicated medical intervention to take care of this problem, even though this was not seen as emergency. However, the calcification of my aortic valve required several restrictions on my activities, even though I did not have very prominent symptoms of the problem.

On December 8, I underwent the TAVR procedure which has obviously been extremely successful as all the tests reveal. I was discharged from the hospital three days after the procedure, and was encouraged by Dr. Ashok Seth And Dr. Vijay Kumar to return to my full routine step by step. I have done so, and feel wonderful with the restoration of my energy level and stamina which I was certainly reluctant to test earlier due to my medical condition. I have been an avid cricketer in the past, and what makes me happiest is the advice of these iconic leaders of medical science led by Dr. Ashok Seth to get back to cricket. I also want to commend the care and attention that I received at the hospital. I praise the infrastructure and services available at Fortis Escorts, which are clearly the reasons why I was able to get discharged from the hospitals on Sunday the 11th, three days after my procedure. On Monday the 12th I not only took, a nice long walk but worked full time for 12 hours at a stretch. I felt wonderful at the end of the day.

My feelings are best expressed by the four lines that I have hurriedly put together as below.
I live on with vigor because God is great,
And then there is doctor Ashok Seth!
I thrive under the light of a shining star
Known to all as Doctor Vijay Kumar

The son of the patient said, “On the internet we found that Dr. Ashok Seth and his team of doctors at Fortis Escorts in India were pioneers in TAVR procedure, and we decided to come to India.”
The lady underwent a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement successfully in 2015 and flew back to her country with a smile and sweet memories of getting well in just five days.
The cheerful son says, “There has been a lot of difference in my mother's condition before and after the procedure and she is able to walk in the Saket City mall without being breathless at all.”

This is beyond a review. It's beyond a reccomendation. It's the smallest possible token of my most heartfelt gratitude towards #FortisEscorts and Dr. TS #Kler. A little before my father posed with that victory sign, he was detected with 80-90% heart blockages in 2 of his major arteries which would eventually be lodged with 2 drug eluting stents. From the time of his diagnosis, to admission, to pre authorisation on insurance matters, follow-up with the TPA, to preparation of surgery, the surgery itself, to post op matters, to intensive care not just for the patient but his family and relatives, to the smallest most minutest details, my experience of navigating though this medical urgency was beyond smooth and assuring. Dr. Kler, one of India's top cardiologists, a Padma Bhushan, and in ways more than one, a celebrity himself never had the slightest air of this supremacy. He was beyond friendly and caring and assuring and ethical. He's the best man you can hope to have. The staff at #fortis too were as helpful and sensitive as they could possibly be. And lastly for all my young friends who think #Insurance isn't all that important and you can take it later, I just ended up saving 4,00,000/- bucks!

“Dr Mandeep explained to me the surgical procedure and the treatment. I was worried about the outcome.. But when he explained why the procedure was important and how it could give me the freedom of mobility again, I felt I was in safe hands. I am grateful to Dr. Mandeep and his team for giving me a new life of un-dependency. I am able to walk more than 2 kilometers; sit on the floor to pray to the god; go about my daily chores in a normal way and most importantly do everything on my own.”

“I do not have adequate words of gratitude and we are really grateful to the family for taking such a noble decision and in being instrumental restoring life to our daughter. I have seen her suffering and had almost lost hope that my wife and I will be able to spend more years watching her grow. But the doctors have made our impossible hope a living dream.”

Our sincere gratitude to the team of doctors especially, Dr. Kler and Dr. Meharwal for getting him back on his feet”.

“I have no words of gratitude for Dr. Iyer and his team. After 28 years, we experienced the joy of the birth of a baby in my family and it was a happiness that we almost lost. Despite the time that we lost in reaching Dr. Iyer, he immediately started the corrective procedures on my baby. I am so grateful to have come to Dr. Iyer who restored the joy and happiness in my family.”
