Experience with TAVR at Fortis Escorts, New Delhi

My father, Sri Om Prakash Goenka had undergone CABG + AVR in 2009. However, in beginning Sept 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 Oct 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 15thOct 2017.

We are extremely grateful 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 grateful 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.
