Global Hospitals, a multi super specialty tertiary care hospital is one of its kinds to offer comprehensive and world class treatment for Cardiac surgeries, had performed Sutureless Valve Replacement surgery on a 78 year old patient. Sutureless aortic valve replacement is innovatively designed procedure for aortic stenosis which is highly versatile and suitable for a wide range of surgical approaches, including traditional and minimally invasive surgeries.
78 year old Unmay Fatima who had recently undergone this surgery at Global Hospitals was refused by many hospitals for surgery before coming to Global Hospitals as she had many complications. Her heart pumping was only 20% and she had much other co-morbidity like stiff neck and rheumatoid arthritis.
Speaking on the procedure, Dr. Hamdulay (Director & HOD- CVTS)said, “Sutureless Valve Replacement surgery is an innovative and revolutionary medical procedure which is a boon to the patient who has to undergo valve replacement surgery especially to the older patients. In the traditional valve replacement surgery, the heart has to be stopped for at least an hour while in sutureless procedure it’s not required. The new valve which is used in the traditional valve replacement has 20-21 sutures/stiches in it but in Sutureless Valve Replacement surgery, one does not need any stitches to attach the foreign valve to the heart. Patients’ recovery is quite faster than sutured valve replacement. The whole surgical time can be reduced to one tenth of the sutured valve replacement surgery.”
Dr. Hamdulay recently completed four successful Sutureless Aortic Valve Replacement surgeries at Global Hospitals, Mumbai. Dr. Hamdulay who pioneers the technique, is one of the most talented and highly skilled cardiac surgeons. At Global Hospitals, the mission is to provide standard cardiac surgical procedures to the patients in India.
Manpreet Sohal, Regional CEO, Global Hospitals, said, “It is our continuous endeavour to provide quality tertiary care to our patients. We aim to raise the benchmark even higher by treating and curing maximum patients and become the dominant spot for cardiac surgeries with the help of our experts and state-of-the-art infrastructure facility and procedures that a lot of other hospitals don’t do. We are focusing on Sutureless Valve Replacement surgery especially to older patients as it is beneficial in terms of faster recovery, less time involved in the surgery.”
