Apollo Hospitals, Guwahati successfully performed Guwahati’s first ever Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery on a 45-year-old female patient

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 20 Apr,2019

Apollo Hospitals, Guwahati was the first hospital in Guwahati to perform Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery on March 7, 2019. A team of experts headed by renowned Cardio Thoracic Surgeon Dr. J P Kalita performed the complex surgery and saved a patient’s life. The surgery was performed on a 45-year-old female patient who had a hole in her heart and leakage of a heart valve.

Patient underwent a successful key hole surgery through chest wall rather than the conventional breast bone cutting open heart surgery. The main benefit of this surgery is minimal post-operative recovery time, less pain and minimal blood loss. Moreover, the chance of getting infected after the procedure is also comparatively very less. Any patient who undergoes minimally invasive cardiac surgery can resume their normal activities within two weeks. Patient recuperated well after the surgery and got discharged.

The Cardiac surgery team at Apollo Hospitals Guwahati is headed by Dr. J P Kalita. Dr. Kalita is an expert in Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery for both Adult and Paediatrics. At the advent of this new Cardiothoracic unit in Apollo Hospitals Guwahati, people of Assam and neighbouring states will also be highly benefitted.
