India has no parallels in healthcare when it comes to cost effective treatments in comparison with other countries. Significant cost differences exist among US, UK and South Asian countries. The cost of a Cardiac Procedure in India is almost one fifth of the cost incurred in the US or elsewhere. Eg a CABG at US would cost 30,000 USD as against 5500-6500 USD in India.
Minimally invasive surgery is becoming more and more common in hospitals. These procedures are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. Because the incisions are small, patients tend to have quicker recovery times and less discomfort than with conventional surgery — all with the same benefits.
Your heart cannot pump normally, and this can lead to heart failure. Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery involves the use of a blood vessel graft to bypass one or more blocked coronary arteries. The bypass restores normal blood flow to the heart muscle.
