I had repeat emergency cardiac surgery by Dr Babar Bashir Chaudhri. I recovered fully and left hospital after 7 days. My family were very impressed by the attention to every detail and the quality of his care which was superb. My first cardiac surgery was in Washington, USA and Dr Chaudhri was every bit as good, if not better than my American surgeon.
