Another milestone in our journey of care! We are glad and proud to announce that we have successfully completed the first TAVI surgery in Karnataka. Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) procedure is suggested when the patient is unfit for an open heart valve surgery due to many causes. The procedure allows an aortic valve to be implanted using a long narrow tube called a catheter. Usually, the catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel in your groin or through a small incision in your chest. The procedure was successful on Mr Samuel Daniel, hails from Madikeri district of Karnataka. He was been advised for open-heart surgery. Being scared of the open heart surgery procedure, Mr Samuel got the perfect solution from us.
