Milestone Cardiac Surgery Marks New Era in Eastern India Healthcare

Apollo Excelcare Hospital achieved a remarkable feat in healthcare by successfully performing a rare and intricate cardiac surgery using the Ozaki procedure. Led by Dr. Manuj Saikia and Dr. Intekhab Alam, supported by a dedicated team of anaesthetists and nursing staff, the surgery marked a pioneering moment in Eastern India’s medical landscape. The procedure, a first in the region, provided critical relief to a 19-year-old girl from Dibrugarh, Assam, suffering from Severe Aortic Stenosis. Dr. Saikia emphasized the significance of the Ozaki Procedure, which repairs the valve using the patient’s own tissue, eliminating the need for lifelong blood thinners and mitigating associated risks. With the patient’s stable condition and positive recovery post-surgery, the milestone underscores Apollo Excelcare Hospital’s commitment to excellence in cardiac care.
