many patients ask me who is the best heart surgeon in mumbai
my personal opinion is
there are two - Dr S Bhattacharya and Dr Ramakant Panda
Dr S Bhattacharya - is the head of cardiac surgery at Bombay Hospital. He is attatched to almost all major hospitals of mumbai
Dr Ramakant Panda is the head of cardiac surgery at Asian Heart Institute, bandra,mumbai
Both are experts in heart bypass surgery ( CABG - coronary artery bypass surgery)
- they both are experts in Off pump ( beating heart) bypass surgery.
In this technique the heart-lung machine is not used and the heart is not stopped.
- They both are experts in Total arterial revascularisation
They use arterial grafts ( arteries) to bypass the heart vessels. Some surgeons still use veins from the legs to bypass the heart vessels. Results have shown that arterial grafts have better results than veins.
- Both of them are very experienced surgeons.
