“Absolutely brilliant Dr, whom I couldnt praise highly enough. Made me feel relaxed and comfortable, even in such a critical situation. With his willingness to chat with you and explain things in a layman's manner, doesnt overload you with information at the same time. Very helpful, and always considering your cares and needs during the rehab process. I can't thank Dr Babar enough for everything he has done. After less than 2 weeks after surgery, I am now looking at the next phase of my rehabilitation and targeting getting back to work. Thanks Dr“

    Dr Chaudhri is an excellent surgeon and his post op care is second to none. I had repeat cardiac surgery (mitral valve valve repair). I am doing very well now. In particular he was able to answer every question from me and my family and reassure us all. Also my scar is very neat!

    I travelled to Dubai from Mumbai. I had CABG X5 with all arterial grafts. My experience was excellent and I was treated in a JCI accredited hospital which was much better than any in my home city. Post op care was excellent and I have recovered quickly and completely. Dr Chaudhri is a leader in his field and I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who needs cardiac surgery. He also works closely with Dr Thomas Bartel who is a superb cardiologist.

    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.

    I was Dr Chaudhri’s patient for a high risk difficult heart surgery in 2019. His UK qualification, extensive experience in the UK, India provided confidence. He was rated India’s best cardiac surgeon one year which is a huge recognition of his expertise. I found Dr Chaudri very approachable and he projected confidence. He took a systematic approach to planning the operation and kept me/ family updated with his plans and the reasons/ risks. The operation was successful and Dr Chaudri was excellent in follow up visits/ explanations. To date he remains accessible and available for any follow up questions/ guidance. Demonstrated great humanity in his conduct. Overall I rate Dr Chaudri as an exceptional Thoracic and Transplant Surgeon and recommend him very highly.
