Bahria International Hospital Sets a New Benchmark in Cardiovascular Care with Pioneering TAVI Procedures

Saturday, January 13, 2024

Bahria Town – Bahria International Hospital proudly announces its leadership in the field of Interventional Cardiology with Prof. Nauman Naseer and Dr. Farqad Alamgir, Directors of the Cardiology program, achieving certification in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI). As a testament to their expertise, the hospital’s structural heart team has successfully performed 25 TAVI procedures, marking the highest number in the region.

Severe Aortic Stenosis is a critical condition that compromises the efficient pumping of blood into the body, posing a life-threatening risk. Traditionally, treating this condition required open-heart surgery, involving chest incisions and the use of a heart-lung machine. However, Bahria International Hospital now offers a groundbreaking solution – TAVI, a minimally invasive procedure that eliminates the need for open-heart surgery.

Unlike traditional methods, TAVI involves the insertion of a new aortic valve through the arteries, minimizing recovery time and reducing the overall impact on patients. Prof. Nauman Naseer and Dr. Farqad Alamgir, both certified Interventional Cardiologists, spearhead this innovative approach to ensure excellent results and improved patient outcomes.

Bahria International Hospital’s commitment to providing cutting-edge medical solutions extends beyond clinical excellence. Recognizing the financial implications of such advanced treatments, the hospital is dedicated to keeping TAVI as affordable as possible for its patients. The institution believes in making medical procedures accessible to a wider demographic, thereby prioritizing the well-being of the community.

Prof. Nauman Naseer and Dr. Farqad Alamgir express their enthusiasm for bringing TAVI to Bahria International Hospital, emphasizing its transformative impact on patients’ lives. This milestone further solidifies the hospital’s position as a pioneer in healthcare innovation, dedicated to raising the standard of medical care in the region.
