NEW DELHI

I am 78 years old lady overweight with asthma and COPD. When I was diagnosed with severe aortic stenos and wild Mitral stenosis it had become almost impossible for me to walk more than 4-5 steps without getting severely out of breadth. We met Dr. Sameer Shrivastava and Dr. Vijay Kumar at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute who were extremely reassuring explaining the disease in detail. Keeping in mind my other ailments they recommended a replacement for my Aortic Valve through TAVR procedure.

Surgery was performed on Tuesday & patient was in a good condition to get discharged from hospital on Friday(3days). Surgery Successful so far. Doctors very experienced & treated well in hospital (Fortis Escorts - SukhdevVihar). Although the procedure is expensive it is a worthy procedure. The patient was the government employee so the treatment needs to be included in CGHS by the government & operations to make more affordable.

Very Good experience with TVAR done by Dr. Ashok Seth & Dr. Vijay Kumar. My advice to other patients who are suffering from severe aortic stenosis should not afraid of the procedure TAVR. TAVR is very easy procedure as compared to OPEN HEART AROTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT.
