61-year-old Mr Abdul Rehman from Chennai had been struggling with breathlessness for the past decade. Despite seeking medical attention from several hospitals in the city and undergoing various tests and treatments, his condition persisted. The only recommended solution was to replace a valve in his heart.

Fortunately, he found himself at Rela Hospital, where his daughter spoke to Dr. V. Narendra Kumar (Senior Consultant in Interventional Cardiology, Advanced Heart Failure, and Transplant Cardiology). The doctor and his team thoroughly evaluated Mr. Abdul Rehman’s condition and offered him a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

After undergoing the procedure, Mr. Abdul Rehman was discharged on the third day and had been doing well ever since. He expressed his gratitude towards the entire hospital and the doctor’s team for their unwavering support throughout the process, which facilitated his speedy recovery.

This heartwarming story highlights the significance of seeking appropriate medical attention and expertise. It also emphasizes the importance of compassionate and dedicated doctors striving to provide their patients with the best care.
