Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 04 Jan,2020

Apollo Hospitals, Guwahati successfully removed a cardiac tumor through minimally invasive approach, for the first time in the entire North East India. This complex surgery was performed by a team of doctors lead by renowned Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeon Dr. Jyoti Prasad Kalita.

A 54-year-old female patient was presented at Apollo Hospitals, Guwahati with breathing difficulties due to a tumour in her heart. Further evaluation revealed that the tumour was very large in size and was lying inside the left sided chamber of heart, which was occluding a heart valve. The benefit of performing the surgery through MICS is that, post-operative recovery time is very less with less pain and less blood loss. Moreover, the chance of getting infected after the procedure is also comparatively less. The patient recovered well and was discharged from the hospital.

With the advent of the new Cardiothoracic unit at Apollo Hospitals, Guwahati, people of Assam and its neighbouring states will be highly benefitted. The Cardiac surgery team at Apollo Hospitals, Guwahati is spearheaded by Dr. J P Kalita who has specialised in Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) for both Adult and Paediatrics.
