Mahdi Mohammed’s Robotic Heart Surgery Journey
  • Patient Name : Mahdi Mohammed
  • From Country : Iraq
  • Destination Country : India
  • Procedure : CABG Robotics
  • Hospital : Manipal Hospital, Dwarka

I am appreciative to Manipal Hospital and Dr. Yugal Kishore Mishra for their pre-operative counseling and consultations. I want to thank MediGence for all of their assistance, which began with helping me choose the best doctor, schedule consultations, and organize hospital stays, hotel stays, and airport transfers

Mahdi Mohammed, a 72-year-old man based in Iraq, faced a daunting challenge with a total blockage in both his left and right arteries, and it was recommended that he undergo Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) through a robotics procedure.

Mr. Mahdi was perplexed after seeing several physicians and receiving conflicting advice, so he instinctively knew he needed to explore surgical options overseas. This prompted him to reach out to MediGence by submitting an inquiry form. He received a response from the Patient Advisory team to talk about his medical history. Based on recommendations and profiles of specialists provided, Mr. Mahdi opted to proceed with his treatment under Dr. Yugal Kishore Mishra at Manipal Hospital, Dwarka.He has been a cardiac specialist for over 41 years. At Manipal Hospitals in Delhi, India, Dr. Yugal Kishore Mishra serves as the chief cardiovascular surgeon, chief of clinical services, and head of cardiac sciences. Dr. Mishra obtained his MBBS in 1980 from S. S. Medical College Rewa, (M.P.) India, followed by his MS in Surgery in 1984 from the same college, and his Ph.D. in Cardiovascular Surgery in 1991 from Bakulev Institute Of Cardio-Vascular Surgery, Moscow, Russia.

Manipal Hospital Dwarka offers care from several reputable experts and is equipped with cutting-edge technologies. It has an emergency center and trauma care available 24/7. The Manipal Dwaraka has 380 beds, including 118 critical care beds, 13 state-of-the-art operation theaters, and cutting-edge equipment such as pneumatic shutter systems. The hospital works hard to give patients the finest care possible. With specialists from all over the world who have been trained by industry pioneers, the hospital provides individualized treatment along with excellent diagnostics.


Mr. Mahdi arrived in India on November 7th accompanied by his son. The Patient Advisory (PA) team greeted him at the airport and ensured his comfortable accommodation at the hotel. His initial appointment was with Dr. Yugal Kishore Mishra at the hospital. After a comprehensive review of his previous angiography report, Dr. Yugal discussed the various methods of performing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) through robotics. (Robotic heart surgery involves the use of robotic arms inserted through small incisions, offering reduced pain and shorter hospital stays.) Mr. Mahdi opted to proceed with the treatment after being satisfied with the doctor’s explanation.

Subsequently, a coronary angiography was conducted, which was completed successfully. Following eight days of medical observation, he was discharged from the hospital under the doctor’s approval. In total, he spent 12 days in the country.

Post Treatment

After his surgery, Mr. Mahdi has made remarkable progress. He is currently doing exceptionally well and can perform everyday tasks that were previously challenging for him. He reports a significant reduction in his chest problems and overall feels much better.

He is relieved that he made the right choice and is quite happy with the care and treatment he received from Dr. Yugal. Additionally, MediGence’s services were greatly valued for their attention, skill, agility, and seamless administration of his entire medical travel itinerary. Mr. Mahdi is wished a long and happy life by MediGence!
