My father was diagnosed with some cardiac problems in Guwahati and was under medication for two months. Later it was found out that he had degenerative severe aortic stenosis, which demands a valve replacement. I took him to Delhi for proper diagnosis and my friends and a senior cardiologist suggested Dr Ritwick Raj Bhuyan considering my father’s age (which is 76), as they feel Dr Bhuyan will be the best cardiac surgeon to treat him.
So after initial tests, I went to Dr Bhyuan for his advice. From the very first consultation, I felt a sense of security and trust as his way of dealing with us was very transparent with a homely attitude. My father who was worried earlier about an operation, was quite happy after discussing with Dr Bhyuan about his treatment.
Finally, he got admitted in Max Patparganj and was undergone minimal invasive aortic valve replacement on 6th March, 19. Dr and his team took care of every issues those may be there during operation and thereafter and they discussed it with us giving the said sense of security and trust. The whole team was taking care of my father quite professionally.
We had to face some post operational complications, which is due to the age of my father who was hesitant to do the minimum exercises, even though all the vitals related to heart were perfect. He had a pleural effusion after a week of operation and then had some acute exacerbation of psychosis after almost a month. In both the cases, Dr Bhuyan has taken charge of those issues bringing experts to his team recognizing the seriousness of those problems. Even after I myself suggested to check an expert for psychosis, it was Dr Bhuyan who himself wanted to handle the issue and have shown his commitment to the patient he handled. I am sort of words for these kind of gestures from a busy expert like him, a simple praise will be nothing considering post operation, every time I texted or called he picks up the phone and listens every issues carefully and comes up with an advice/solution. I bow to his personality, his behavior, his attitude towards my father and us and always will be grateful. I am thankful to the whole team under him and can recommend him to anyone who is looking for a cardio surgeon for their near and dear ones.
My mother was diagnosed with multiple blockages in her heart and was advised to go for by-pass surgery. We were at Max Patparganj for angiography where it was diagnosed. When we got to know about it, we all panicked terribly. Anyhow, we didn't get the chance to take a second opinion or anything about it.
Before the procedure, we met Dr Ritwick and he explained to me in a very detailed manner about how it is done and has almost become a sure-shot operation. His words helped me get through the panic and we agreed to go ahead with the Operation.
It has been more than a year since it was done, I feel so happy to see my mother doing all the daily chores, exercises, running, basically anything she wants to. Before, she couldn't even walk 100m and shooting pain happened in her chest. Now we both go together for jogging.
It has all happened because of Dr Ritwick's expertise and finesse. I really thank him for the great work and wish him all the success.
