Dr. Adil Sadiq has the distinction of probably being the only Cardiac surgeon in South India who is trained in Robotic Cardiac surgery. He is one of the very few surgeons in the country, who has extensive experience in minimally invasive cardiac surgery, including endoscopic approaches and is one of the very few surgeons performing Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) in this part of the country. He has considerable experience with Percutaneous Transcatheter Implantation of an Aortic Valve (valve replacement via the groin), being part of the team that had pioneered its clinical use. He has performed over 4500 Cardiac Surgeries, 1600 thoracic procedures and 65 Heart and Lung Transplants which speak volumes about his success in critical surgeries. His practice encompasses the entire spectrumCardiothoracic & Vascular surgery, with special focus on minimally invasive cardiac surgeries, total arterial beating heart revascularisation, complex redo-heart surgery, valve repairs and congenital cardiac surgery.Having completed his medical degree from Bangalore medical college, he did his Masters in General Surgery from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal. Even after completing a Masters his zeal for study never receded, he wanted to delve deeper into the Cardio Sciences and pursued super-Specialty training in Cardiothoracic and Vascular surgery from the prestigious Sree Chitra Institute, which developed India’s only commercially available prosthetic heart valve and membrane oxygenator.
We got in touch with Dr. Adil Sadiq for my mother in law 's bypass grafting. She is 75 yrs old with diabetes and high cholesterol levels. She was having constant chest pain and shortness of breath even with minimum activity due to blocks in multiple coronary arteries. We don't know him personally but when we spoke to him, he appeared extremely positive about her outcome. We felt immediate relief when he confidently said she will be walking in the ward 2 days after bypass. The bypass lasted 8 hours, he came out after that, appeared extremely calm. He said all arteries appeared fine and bypass was a success. He simply said, it was Gods grace and thanked us for our trust in him.
What struck us at that moment was his humility, his quiet confidence and extraordinary technical ability which he brushed off as God's grace.
Needless to say, my mother in law is doing great, walked the wards as he said, got discharged 5 days postop. Sakra is a fantastic hospital, all nurses, cardio thoracic team and anesthesiologist Dr. Sunil are fantastic. No words to describe their professionalism. We placed full faith in them and they in turn took best care of our patient.
We wish Dr. Adil all the best. He is comparable with the best of best in the industry. Anybody with any doubts regarding his capability of doing bypass or where he stands in comparison with other cardio thoracic surgeons in Bangalore or anywhere in the world for that matter, there is no need to look further. You are in extremely safe hands
My Father (Shiva Shankar Putta) 56 years old, was a known case with a history of (Severe mitral valve prolapse) has consulted various hospitals over the past few years like Care Hyderabad, Apollo Hyderabad and was under medication. When the COVID 2nd wave ended and when things were settling everywhere my Dad consulted Apollo Hyderabad as a regular follow-up. That is when the Dr. Vijay Dikshith Senior Cardiovascular Surgeon who was taking care of my dad case told us that he needs to go through a surgery, and it need to be done as soon as possible likely in 2-3 months. We all got shocked and went through different kinds of panic situations. The reason being, we lost one of our father’s younger brother couple of years back due to cardiac arrest. Like everyone we had apprehension. We then checked with various and different doctors both family and outside hospitals. We even had to change the cities and check with different relatives, friends & colleagues for doctors ‘references to get the correct information. One fine day we met Dr. Adil Sir at SAKRA Hospital, Bangalore after getting reference from a know friend. During the first consultation doctor has understood my dad current situation and he clearly and patiently explained everything starting from my dad’s current problem, his severity level and what need to be done next and how it will be done, difference between open heart surgery and MICS which one would be better and the most important the recovery time. This is all to educate us and not to create more panickness or fear. He has also giving trust and confidence to my Dad in a way that after coming out from hospital my dad got a lot of strength and confidence in the doctor and his fears also got reduced a lot. On the same day we met Tarangini who is the coordinator for Dr. Adil sir, also patiently explained the package details, the necessary decisions that we need to make, pre-hospitalization test and all the other required details.
Once we are back to home, we thought through it and enquired about the hospital, Dr. Adil Sir also about MICS. We got a very positive feedback about all. We have also realized the importance of the surgery and thanks to Dr. Adil sir for explaining each & every aspect very clearly it has helped us a lot in understanding what we need to do and act soon which we did not get earlier from other doctors.
We then decided to go for surgery with the same doctor. We contacted Tarangini for the surgery dates, pre-tests and steps that we need to complete before admission. We had to check for blood donors as the hospital was not having enough units of blood that was required. Thanks to Kumar and Shivam Siri for donating the blood and helping us on time.
We consulted Dr. Balasubramanya, to get the dental checkup done which is one of the pre-requisites before the surgery. The doctor over here has also explained the problems that can cause because of the infection in the teeth and during the surgery. He has explained us the process of removing the infection from the teeth and also got confirmation from Dr.Adil sir right in front of us. Thanks to Dr. Balasubramanya and his entire staff for treating my dad.
After completing all the required tests and process on 13th Oct 2021 my dad got admitted as we have planned to get the surgery done on 14th Oct 2021. On the date of admission hospital staff made the admission process very smoothly. The nursing staff has done various test. Dr. Parvez, Dr. Sunil came and gave more confidence before the surgery. Late night Dr. Adil sir has also come and gave an extra boost of confidence to my dad. The next day surgery took around 6 hours. We were continuously given updates during the surgery from the OT. Around 2:30 PM in the afternoon Dr. Adil sir called us and spoken to us and updated the surgery outcome outside the OT. As he mentioned during our initial visit and consultation, he has repaired the valve and he said nothing to be worried now. It was a great news to my entire family. My dad was then sifted to ICU and had to stay in ICU for 2 days. A big thanks to the doctors, nurses in the ICU who have taken excellent care of my Dad during his stay and sorry as we are not able to know the names to mention here. In ICU My dad was able to start walking and sitting on chair from the next day itself, it was a great advantage of MICS as mentioned by the doctor. After shifting to the ward, the nurses in the ward also took an excellent care of my dad. Special thanks to sister Anasuya for taking care of my dad when he was in the ward. We then got discharged on 19th Oct 2021.
During our stay in the hospital, we got to know even more about Dr. Adil. He performs 2 or sometimes 3 surgeries in a day, does consultations, visits patients who are in ICU and wards. I was thinking how he can be able to manage all of it. He is really a great individual and we are fortunate to meet and interact with him at the correct time. With such great expertise and busy schedule, he is still available, polite, humble and has a very cool attitude. All the doctors know how to reduce the worries and bring smile on the patience face.
Finally I would like to take the opportunity to express my sincere thanks to each and every one from the bottom of my heart and from my entire family starting from Dr. Adil sir, Dr.Parvez, Dr.Sunil, Dr.Sanjana, Dr.Caranz, Dr.Ajay Shetty and the entire team, Tarangini, Ananth, Management of Sakra World Hospital Bangalore and many others for helping us out, saving my dad and giving the happiness to my entire family.

Admission date 02-Sep-21
My mother aged 71 yrs went for consultation with Dr Sreekanth Shetty (at Sakra hospital) due to severe headache. He advised ECHO/TMT and suggested angiogram based on TMT report.
Basis angiogram report, he guided us to see Dr Adil.
Dr Adil very clearly explained the angiogram report and suggested the minimally invasive bypass surgery. While he detailed the process and the importance of surgery, we had our apprehensions and consulted Dr Devi Shetty from Narayana Hrudayala, Dr Dayananda from manipal hospitals and few more doctors known to us. All of them mentioned that it's required to do the bypass surgery.
We realized the importance to get the surgery done but unsure who is the best to perform this surgery. Looking at the online reviews, we felt Dr Adil is the expert surgeon for this type of LIS CABG surgery. We were more convinced after he spoke to my mother when we went for re-consultation. He reassured my mother the importance of surgery and gave us all the required confidence.
The admission process was very smooth at Sakra world hospital. The admission desk gave us the room and the nursing staff have done all the required tests. That evening Dr Adil met us and based on reports he recommended the Surgery next day morning. He even patiently took calls in the night from my sister residing in USA who is worried about the risk of surgery.
The next day the Surgery took around 6.5 hours. Around 7 PM in evening, outside OT, Dr Adil have spoken to us and updated the surgery outcome. He mentioned the long procedure is due to finding the right vein for replacement. He could not compromise on the quality of vein and had to try for the best vein.
Such a dedication, patience and focus to do the very best are qualities of very few people. Dr Adil excels even of those few people.
I got to know he performs 2 or sometimes 3 surgeries in a day and often to not get to have food on time. With such great expertise and busy schedule, still he is very much available, humble and have a very cool demeanour.
GOD should give more such people to the society.
The next 3-4 days, the nurses in the ICU and the room have taken excellent care of my mother and even after such a major surgery, my mother got discharged on 4th day of surgery.
Post the discharge, in the next weeks, Dr Adil regularly monitored the reports(sugar, bp, pulse etc) that we used to post on his whatsapp every day. Also the other staff from Adil’s team Libin have been on regular touch with whatsapp for wound recovery. This is not any special service to us and this is a process they do for all their patients and assist them for faster recovery.
Dr Sreekanth has done the right diagnosis on the spot and we were lucky to have visited him at right time. It was his quick and deep analysis into family history, TMT report and the angiogram that caught the problem before it could have been fatal.
The entire team of Dr Adil ( Dr Pervez, Dr Indira ) and the nursing staff were quite helpful and very caring. The nursing staff in ICU took excellent care throughout the day and night. One of the Doctor have also gave a unit of blood as the blood group was rare and not an easily available one. Last but not the least Tarangini who is the co-ordinator for Dr Adil has very well organised and made the entire duration very easy and smooth for us. It was like we checked in to star hotel, got the process done successfully and checked out.
Thank you for the coordination, dedication and professionalism of all the doctors, nurses and staff members. All of you should take great pride in the service you provide.

Kind Attn: Dr. Adil Sadiq
I am very happy for the experience I had at Sakra World Hospital, Bangalore. Please accept my appreciation for the excellent job of your Sakra World Hospital staff during my minimally invasive cardiac Surgery (MICS CABG). It was an enormous undertaking but went very smoothly and efficiently under your management.
** **** ***** ** *** ** *** **** ******** *** ***** ****** * **** **** ****
He explained very patiently all our questions and clarified all our doubts thereby giving us full confidence and hope in the minimal invasive surgery. Not only did I have a successful bypass surgery without any pain, but also his soft spoken, down to earth nature and kind self are some of the experiences for which I feel indebted for life.
Further, Dr. Sunil Kumar NK, gave me continuous inspiration and courage to stay positive throughout the stay.
The entire team of doctors, nurses and attendants were very helpful and extremely nice, friendly and smiling. They took excellent care throughout the day and night during my stay in the ICU and the room.
I would like to mention about one of your cafeteria cleaners called Rani. Her honesty touched my heart when she returned my daughter’s lost purse containing nearly Rs 45,000 and denied any tips for this gesture.
Thank you for the teamwork, dedication and energy of all the doctors, nurses and staff members. You and your hospital staff should take great pride in this accomplishment.
My sincere thank you to all the Sakra World Hospital members.

Consultant Doctor: Adil Sadiq
Date of admission to SAKARA 13/09/2021
Date of my successful surgery 14/09/2021
Discharge Date 19/09/2021
First of all, we apologize for writing this feedback bit late.
We strongly recommend Dr. Adil Sadiq and Dr. Sreekanth Shetty at Sakra World Hospital for Cardiac related health issues.
My father (Kottureshappa KM) 72 years old, was a known case with a history of Paroxysmal AF, Hypertension, Hyperkalemia, Cerebellar Hamorrhagic Infarct for which he was consulting at Sakra World Hospital from the last 7 years by Dr. Sreekanth Shetty. Recently he was diagnosed with Triple Vessel Disease and Dr. Sreekanth has referred to Dr. Adil Sadiq for CABG LIS Surgery.
Initially, as a family we all had anxiety on how it would go and the post-surgery complications and recovery time. But when we started interacting with Dr. Adil, he clearly explained to us about the surgery, pro’s and con’s that come with it and boosted our confidence and made my dad very comfortable to undergo the surgery.
Throughout the pre and post surgery, Dr. Adil Sadiq kept us informed about my dad's condition and built confidence in us. He was easily reachable for any kind of queries. The dedicated nursing team was very dynamic and took care of my father in a caring way. At times the team went extra mile to look after my father. The best part is that the team has coordinated for all the cross references with other doctors and provided a collective summary for our understanding.
My father was able to walk with in 3 days and was discharged around a week’s time post-surgery. He was almost independent to carry out his basic activities at discharge time. Even after getting discharged from hospital, Dr. Adil Sadiq and his team was still in touch with us and suggested my father to do set of activities on periodic basis which made us easy to report and manage from home.
Within a month’s time, the wound completely healed up and my father can do normal work at home with minimal restriction on lifting the weight. This is the best part which CABG-LIS procedure offers i.e., FASTER RECOVERY.
Dr. Adil is a great human being, a gentle man who respect individuals and their beliefs. He is also a great leader and a mentor. We are fortunate to meet and interact with him.
The entire family would like to express our sincere thanks to the entire team of Dr. Adil, Dr. Sunil, Dr. Indira Rajani, Dr. Parvez, Dr. Rowena, Dr. Shreekanth, supporting staff Nikhila, Anjali, Tarangini, Libin and many others and the OT team. The team is just OUTSTANDING, very well coordinated and does a meticulous job. Thank you for giving the re-birth and rejoice our happiness. God bless you all.
Anoop and Swaroop
I have visited Dr Adil Sadiq for my father on 22nd March 2017. There is a hole in my father’s Aorta Valve, so we had to replace the valve. He was also having chest pain. We have first visited Narayan institute of cardiac science and met Dr Devi Shetty. Before that in Nov 2016 we have tried to replace the value in Kolkata R N Tagore hospital ( A subsidiary of Narayana Group Dr Atanu). They didn’t check the report properly after Opening the heart they found lots of Calcium in heart which they should have found in angiogram or doing ECG. Finally they failed to replace the valve and they Billed around 1.68 lacs. The services was pathetic. Doctors are unprofessional.
I will tell you another example. On the day of OT they have informed we have to arrange three bottle of blood. They have informed in the morning only when Operation scheduled at 12 Pm . If we are not able to collect blood they will not perform Operation.
Coming to Narayana Institute of Cardiac Science. I had to wait entire three days in hospital after taking appointment. They will not give you a fixed timing. Dr Shetty told us they will perform surgery the cost will be 8 lacs. Just think about that where all the valve replacement in INDIA will cost around INR 2 to 3 lacs. I am able to do my father’s surgery in less than half of what Narayana Hospital was asking. I am able to save my father’s live because of Dr Adil & his team. Thank you so much Dr Adil and his team you made us happy again.
Finally we met Dr Adil Sadiq and his team. The day we meet doctor we understood this is the right place. Dr Adil listened carefully and explain all the details in very simple language. Also he told the risk associated with surgery.
** **** ***** *** *** **** ** **** ** *** ******** I really believe they should be No 1 hospital in India. The environment and hospitality in SAKRA WORLD Hospital was really cool. I have visited many hospital in Kolkata and Bangalore. I can tell You SAKRA is best hospital. You can feel the difference in every aspect. All the doctors and nurses are very cooperative and concerned about patient. You will not feel the same in other hospitals.
Now this is for my Bengali friend and People from Bangladesh, Don’t go blindly to Dr Devi Shetty rather visit SAKRA Hospital. Narayana Hospital is just sucking Our hard earned money. Dr Adil has also 17 years of Experience. He also posses degree MS (General Surgery), MCH (CTVS),FACS(USA),FMICS(USA). He is very humble and down to earth person. Your disease will go away 50% if you know the doctor really care.
I don’t know about the world. *** * *** ****** **** *** ** ** *** **** ******* ******* ** ***** ** **** *******
Dr. Adil personifies warmth and care. Talk to him for 10 mins and you would be totally confident and courageous to follow his suggestions. My sister was diagnosed with OS ASD. We were referred to him by his colleague Dr. Deepak Krishnamurthy at Sakra. Dr. Adil Sadiq spoke to us about the issue. Explained it in detail. Demonstrated the proposed procedure and assured us the benefits. I, for sure was very convinced by his patient engagement skills.
We took our time to assimilate the situation. The issue before us, was a surprise to us, as my sister was asymptomatic. Between diagnosis and decision to go ahead with surgery, it took us about 2 weeks and in the mean time I was trying to gather as much information as possible about the place, process and persons to make a decision. To be frank, at the end of two weeks I had the same conviction as on Day 1; that is, lets get the procedure done with Dr. Adil Sadiq at Sakra World Hospital. Nothing could bolster me to decide otherwise.
With the persuite to follow up and take this journey to a logical conclusion I approached Dr. Adil Sadiq by writing him an email about my concerns and seeked his clarification on few points that were required for us to make this big decision as a family. He was kind enough to write back promptly addressing each of my concerns.
Dr. Adil Sadiq is very approachable, I was fortunate to engage with him on WhatsApp and clarify few things. Finanly once we decided the date of admission and tenantive dates of procedure, I didn't have to do anything extra. His office at Sakra was completely prepared to accomodate us as per the plan.
To summarize the hospitalization; It was indeed a very smooth experience; with absolutely no scope to complain on any front. On the date of admission angiogram was performed and the results were discussed. In our case it was all good; so the only outstanding issue as far as my sister's heart is concerned was ASD and it was decided that it will be closed by surgery the following day. We were shifted to ward; the nursing staff under Dr. Adil requires a special mention, they know their job very well. As an attendee, I was present there as a physical point of contact, other than that everything was taken care by the staff.
One more confidence boosting event happened in the evening before the procedure. Team Dr. Adil Sadiq arrived in batches as per their area of expertise, they introduced and explained about their role in the procedure. Next came Dr. Adil's associate surgeon Dr. Ravichandan. He explained to me in detail about the procedure. They ensure that we know what is going to be done. Finally came Dr. Adil Sadiq to ensure we are at peace and have faith in the process.
One more interesting fact about Sakra; I had arranged about 7 donors and only two got eligible for donation. Eventually it was more than sufficient as not even a single drop of blood was transfused; it did panic me in the beginning; but later got to know from Dr. Adil Sadiq that at Sakra they don't sell blood; hence they ensure the highest quality in collection of blood. He assured me that they have the requisite units of blood in place and I need not worry.
The day of procedure was very professionally handled. They took my sis around 8:30 in the morning. I was asked to leave my mobile number with the OT security and I will be informed of the progress from time to time. After every phase of the process I was called and informed the status and condition of my sis. After a marathon 6 hours procedure, Dr. Adil Sadiq came and met me. He is indeed a man of steel; how can someone be so calm and composed after a 6 hour operation; I was literally awestruck. He explained to me and comforted me by saying everything is fine and the operation was successful. Later from the security I came to know that Dr. Adil Sadiq is the first man to get into OT and the last to be out. Hats off Sir, your dedication is supreme.
A brief about Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery labelled as LIS (Least Invasive Surgery) at Sakra. It is a highly advanced technology assisted process, which creates less damage in terms of surgical cuts and blood loss and helps in faster recovery. And I must say Dr. Adil and team performed it with text book precision. I, in my capacity could actually relate my sister's recovery progress and I can say every aspect of her was in alignment with the data points I had collected about this method of surgery.
Post operation care is execellent. The support staff know their job and they execute it with utmost professionalism. I aboslutely had no scope to complain.
Thank you Sir. Your contribution in terms of a new lease of life to my sister and peace of mind to the rest of us in the family is priceless. We really cannot thank you enough.
Thanks and warm regards,
My father, who is a diabetic, was diagnosed with triple vessel disease in May 2016 and was advised cardiac bypass surgery. We consulted 3 cardiac surgeons at different hospitals before deciding on Dr. Adil Sadiq at Sakra Hospital. There were two reasons for making this choice.
1. One of my father’s colleagues was operated by Dr. Adil Sadiq one year prior and he provided very positive feedback on both the surgeon and the nursing staff.
2. My father felt very comfortable after talking to the doctor. Dr. Adil explained how the surgery can be done to reduce the time of recovery. He showed us the exact time table for each of the 7 days of the hospital stay.
The admission process was very smooth. Most of the first day was spent in doing various tests. Towards the evening, both the cardiac surgeons(Dr. Adil and Dr. Ravichandran) visited us and talked to our family about the operating procedure and the test results. Dr. Sunil(anesthesia) also visited us. Dr. Ravichandran sat me down separately and gave me a detailed explanation of the procedure, possible complications and what they are doing to eliminate risk. The nursing staff was very attentive and caring.
On the 2nd day, my father was taken to surgery around 9 AM. During the surgery, we received regular updates from the doctors on how the surgery was going. My father was moved to ICU around 5 PM. As it was late in the day, doctors chose to take him out of sedation the next morning. He was in ICU for two days. By the second day in ICU, my father had recovered enough to ask for newspapers and his glasses. The ICU was very spacious and very well lit. We were only permitted very short visits twice in a day in the ICU. The nursing staff in ICU took very good care of my father.
Once my father moved back to the ward, the nursing staff took very good care of the exercise and diet required for recovery. My father was able to climb a 5-6 steps by the 5th day after surgery. He was discharged after 8 days of total stay in the hospital (Monday to Monday). The doctors provided us a diet chart, exercise regimen and medications to follow for the next month.
We finished the 1 week and 1 month follow up checks on schedule with Dr. Adil. During this recovery period, Dr. Adil was always available on WhatsApp and readily responded to any queries. It was very reassuring that we could get in touch with the doctor if there was a problem. Thankfully we did not have any.
We are very happy with the way everything turned out. Dr. Adil, in addition to being a good surgeon, is very patient and warm. His team (Dr. Ravichandran, Dr. Rajani and Dr. Sunil) are also very caring and put you at ease. The nursing staff in the cardiac ICU and the ward are excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Adil and Sakra hospital for heart related issues.
This is a late overdue recommendation which I must write for Dr. Adil Sadiq. He is truly a Gem and great Saviour as a person and a Doctor working in Sakra World Hospital, Bangalore. My Brother-in-law was having this rheumatic heart disease ( Later which we came to know above Heart Valve related) for quite some time and he was under treatment in CMC hospital. But Somehow we were not very satisfied with the way they handle the patients although they were the ones who found out the heart problem and advised us to go for Heart valve Replacement Surgery for which we were very very scared.
While visiting Bangalore I found out by some research/on-line reviews about Dr Adil Sadiq and we went for a consultaion. He gave us sufficient time and told us each and every details of the diseases, its different treatments, pros and cons and cleared all our doubts. He has such a persona that it takes away half of your problems/doubts. He listens to you very carefully and assures you the best treatment. Believe me, we were already convienced the way he explained about surgery and the other details to go with the doctor. I have never seen such a calm and composed doctor who will always have a simle on his face.
But even then we discussed the situation with many Hospitals/Doctors in Bangalore **************** ********** in Delhi ********************** etc but were not very convinced by the doctors opinions/treatment cost and other factors. Finally we decided to go with the same doctor and it was the best decision we took.
Dr Adil's team is one of the best team in Sakra World hospital. They explained/counselled the whole procedure and post surgery details. Surgery happened as planned by LIS (Least Invasive Surgery) technique which doctor has already explained and we read it all about in before we agreeing for it.
Post surgery 2 day stay of ICU and my BIL was already on his feet the day he came out of ICU. He took a walk in the hosplital lobby, ate some recommended food and was getting better day by day. Another 5 days he stayed in the hospital and then he was discharged. The whole experience with the hospital, nursing staff and doctor's suppoting staff was extraordinaory and also the treat cost was below under 5Lakhs which other hospitals had estimated 6-7 lakhs and all.
My BIL had come from Ranchi (Jharkhand) and another 1 week stay with us, he went back home. In home also he didn't show much discomfort and we never felt he had gone for such a major surgery. Its all because of the Dr Adil's best hand and precised technique unlike in Open heart surgery where the recovery time and other things are quite painful.
I would highly recommend anyone who wants to plan or undergoing the similar kind of treatment/Surgery you must speak to Dr Adil Sadiq first and then decide, I am sure he will change the way you look at the complexicity of the diseases.
Me, my sister, my brother-in law and my whole family is very very thankful to Dr. Adil Sadiq and his team for the surgery and I wish him all the very best.
Thanks a lot Doctor, I wish I would have invited you for a lunch/dinner at home :)
My wife, who is in her early 40s with no symptoms or medical history, was diagnosed with a rare situation of cardiac myxoma (mass in the right atrium). We had consulted few doctors who had different opinions about the diagnosis but all advised urgent surgery. The fact that cardiac myxoma is a very rare condition made us very nervous and confused about what our next step should be. We met Dr. Adil Sadiq at Sakra World Hospital in Bangalore for a second opinion and from the very first consultation we were completely convinced about the diagnosis, the consequences of this medical situation and the need for surgery. He recommended the option of minimally invasive surgery and explained to us very clearly about how it is carried out and the benefits it had to offer in terms of recovery time. We had repeated queries during each visit about the risks associated with the surgery, the method, possible complications and the recovery time, and Dr. Adil was ever so patient and keen in ensuring that all of our questions were answered convincingly. It is truly amazing how he maintains a cheerful disposition and genuine empathy in every interaction despite his obvious busy schedule.
We went for the surgery within 4 weeks after meeting Dr. Adil. We had a very good idea of what to expect and everything happened as planned. The day before the surgery, Dr Ravi and Dr. Sunil gave us a complete briefing which was greatly reassuring. The surgery took place as planned, it was minimally invasive, there were no surprises and the outcome was successful. The surgery lasted 4 hours and the team at Sakra made sure to give us regular updates during the procedure and Dr. Adil himself came out at the end to convey the result and that there was nothing to worry.
My wife was discharged 5 days after surgery and within a couple of weeks she recovered completely. In less than 4 weeks’ time, we were back to normal life. A special mention to the nursing staff at Sakra- Anju, Manju, Anjali and all the others for extending wonderful care to my wife.
We could keep in touch regularly with Dr. Adil over messages and could get continuous feedback from him on test results and timely advices on how to overcome certain complaints.
It was a difficult situation that we had to face- sudden diagnosis of a rare condition and having to undergo a cardiac surgery, all in 4 weeks’ time. We sincerely believe we got through this situation by the grace of god, the good wishes and support from family and friends and more than everything, the excellent professional care with a personal touch from Dr Adil Sadiq and his team at Sakra.
Dr. Adil - we are very fortunate that we came to you and wish to convey our sincere gratitude and best wishes to you and each member of your team.
