Foreign Dignitaries are flocking to India for treatment

Dignitaries from all over the world flocking to the country not to experience its rich cultural heritage; not even toashok seth9invest and discuss business projects but to get treated….. How does that sound? Too good to be true? Not exactly!

Indian healthcare set up is in the process of becoming the cynosure of all eyes. Pakistani human rights activist, Asma Jahangir and Bangladeshi jute minister, Abdul Latif Siddiqui getting themselves treated at Delhi bears this out with aplomb. Of the two, Jahangir underwent angioplasty at Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre this Thursday only. She had a tiny blockage in the right artery of her heart which was diagnosed on Wednesday when she was in the capital for her husband’s routine check-up at the Okhla based Escorts hospital.

The doctors at Escorts then decided to perform an angioplasty to which she gave her consent immediately. The interventional procedure headed by Dr. Ashok Seth went on for about 40 minutes to rectify the blockage. The procedure was uneventful. She is fine and can resume work in a month’s time, said Dr. Vijay. It bears mention that Bangladeshi jute minister who underwent an angioplasty a week before Jahangir is already back to work. He was suffering from palpitations and chest congestion, due to a blockage in one of his arteries, said Dr Seth.

Siddique was actually referred to some hospital in Singapore by Lab Aid Hospital of Dhaka. But, he preferred coming toAbdul Latif Siddiqui India to take treatment from Dr. Seth”, said Dr. Vijay. Dr. Seth is one of the most experienced cardiac surgeons in the world and has performed more than 40,000 Angiograms and 15,000 Angioplasties in his career, for which he has received recognition in the ‘Limca Book of Records’.
