This technique is a boon for patients having multifaceted medical complications, required a bypass surgery and an aortic valve replacement. His lung condition did not permit the use of a ventilator and he was high risk for general anaesthesia. With his surgery being rejected at various centres before he came to us, his best chance of survival was an open heart surgery without general anaesthesia, in other words, an awake heart surgery. We give him that chance using the technique of high thoracic epidural analgesia and a new direction in heart surgery has been unveiled,' recounted Dr Jawali.

  1. i had my heart bypass surgery (mitral valve replacement) last aug.8,2013,i
    recovered fast,now im much better,you can say it by looking on my face,its
    glowing and pinkish now,and i can run faster than before :)

    1. +Jatin Singh yes Jatin you’re absolutely correct! Covering for the past
      half of decade in medical tourism review India posses the best cardiac
      surgeons along with hospitals and facilities. I think economy wise the
      world is getting aware about the fact India is becoming the centre of
      attraction due to the affordable services. I have found this site for
      review. http://www.indiacardiacsurgerysite.com/

  2. Sure its pain.his chest is opened,the heart is being touch many times,how
    could he don’t feel pain at all?do they inject an anti pain into his heart
    or what?I don’t see any lung-heart machine anywhere on this surgery…

  3. Dr. Jawali & Dr. Chakravarthy, Wow!. The best I’ve heard for heart
    patients. Thank you for your dedication and expertise. Positive growth for
    future medicine. I can see doctors and surgeons from everywhere going to
    Bangalore to upgrade their medical expertise. Keep us informed. We need
    more people like you!.

  4. Wow, Dr. Jawali, hats off to you, and Dr. Murali Chakravarthy, for this
    “First in the world”, achievement. I can imagine some foreigners bad
    mouthing you, and your technique, it is just a care of envy, jealousy, and
    also an indirect praise for India, in general, and you in particular.
    Carry on with your good work.

    1. +venkat Raman S. I have found Indian doctors, in the USA, anyway, to be
      among the MOST competent and thorough. They also deal with patients better
      than other ethic background; they are generous with their time and
      explanations, and they seem to know how to allay any fears or address
      concerns the patient may have while keeping utmost professional demeanor.
      If given a choice, I will ALWAYS pick the Indian doctor over any other.

    1. +Krishna Krish yes, thanks to the USA for pioneering the procedures needed
      for the heart bypass and valve surgery.

      you’re welcome and your apology will be accepted.

  5. Really marvelous innovation. Indian doctors are quite competent, given the
    opportunity they will excell. We always hear about some shoddy practices at
    various hospitals. In general India does have a well trained doctors, some
    of them invited to Toronto, Canada, hospitals for teaching and performing
    various operations.

  6. What a medical breakthrough; to perform cardiac surgery with the patient
    able to respond to questions & directions posed to him by the surgical
    team!! Amazing.

  7. This man is far braver than I would’ve been. I have got one major concern
    about the epidural anesthesia and that is suppose that the numbing meds
    completely wear off, then what appropriate action would the
    anesthesiologist or ologists take? I don’t like the idea of staying awake
    during such a major surgery as open heart surgery.
