I was admitted in this hospital on 25th November 2019 with severe aortic valve stenosis which required replacement of AORTIC VALVE. Being a native of Kolkata, I came to know the reputation of fortis Escorts health Institute. Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) was performed by Dr. Ashok Seth & Dr. Vijay Kumar, well-coordinated by Mr. Ravi on 28th November 2019 at cath-lab.
Due to my old age and body condition, I was not ready for open surgery and lost the hope, then I came to know about TAVR & Dr. Seth, after going through the detailed reading I proceed for it, believe me it is just like a miracle happen and I am discharged with in 3 days from admission.
Dear Dr. Seth, we celebrated dad’s 90th birthday on Jan 7th and have been wanting to write this note ever since... didn't get a chance until now. I still recall the first time we met you at crossroads to risk another open heart surgery to treat Aortic Stenosis. The sheer confidence with which you suggested that we wait out until the option of TAVR became available, a couple of years hence. Rest is history.
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.
