When I came to Dr. Rao I was in a bad condition, he suggested TAVR and we went forward with it. Even on the day of operation my health got worse but I told Dr. Rao and his team to operate without thinking about the result, and they saved me. They are like God to me. I am really thankful to them for giving me a healthy life at this age.

I didn’t know that I had aortic stenosis. When I got checked the doctors told me that I had to get it operated soon. I came to Jaipur and met Dr. Rao. He made me understand the process of TAVR and convinced me for the operation. I was awake throughout the operation and still it was not bad. I was fine and the operation went well. This is all because of Dr. Rao and his team.
