A selection of first-hand accounts of what it was like before and after minimally invasive valve surgery performed by Mr Modi is provided here. If you would like to speak personally to a patient who has had a particular procedure performed then this can be arranged for you. Speed of recovery from a surgical procedure can vary and depends on many factors specific both to the nature of the procedure performed and also the other health issues of the patient. These examples provide a fair representation of what is typically achieved – that is, resumption of normal activities in about 3 weeks in most patients.
