Patient Stories

Mr. D. Sarkar was a regular smoker, and was habituated to use cycle as a local transport. In 1997, he started feeling chest pain and fatigue, while cycling. He stopped it, and then went to Doctor for consultation. He was given some Diagnostic Test, where he was found to have a Blockage in one of his arteries. He was recommended CABG. Mr. Sarkar went to CMC, Vellore to do his CABG. After that, with regular medicines, he was doing quite well.

In 2010, he again started feeling the same problem. He underwent different tests again, and was suggested Angiogram. There it was seen that two of the other Arteries were fully blocked, with one of them having 90% blockage. Angioplasty was done under Dr. Sunip Banerjee.

In today`s date Mr. Sarkar is doing perfectly fine, and leading a peaceful life.

Mrs. L. Khatoon. was a housewife who had blood sugar for around two years. Gradually, a complication arose. When after sitting or lying down for some time, she would rise suddenly, a period of dizziness would occur - followed by a bout of unconsciousness. During such attacks, her BP would not register, except in her legs. She also suffered from dizziness due to severe mental anxiety.

She approached Dr. Sunip with her problems and was suggested Angioplasty by the doctor. She undertook the procedure and after following Dr. Sunip's suggested healthy way of living, she recovered fully and is leading a happy and normal life.
