Dr. Vijay Dikshit is an esteemed heart and general surgeon who practices at Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad. He has over 50 years of valuable experience in his field. Dr. Dikshit graduated with honors from King George’s Medical College in Lucknow and went on to pursue advanced training in

Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, making him the first person from Lucknow University to do so. Dr. Dikshit has conducted pioneering work in the medical field, including a thesis on selective Conray Third Ventriculography and an experimental study of segmental venous replacement by Gore-Tex graft. He is a member of the Medical Council of India and the Cardiological Society of India. Dr. Dikshit offers a wide range of procedures, including balloon mitral valvuloplasty and intra-arterial thrombolysis, ensuring comprehensive cardiac care for his patients.

Intra-Arterial Thrombolysis : Delivers clot-busting medication directly into a blocked artery in the brain to treat ischemic stroke. This minimally invasive procedure can minimize brain damage.

Radial Approach Angiography : Uses the radial artery in the wrist for catheter insertion during angiography, a procedure that X-rays blood vessels to diagnose blockages or abnormalities. This approach offers faster recovery and less discomfort compared to the traditional femoral artery access.

Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty : Inserts a balloon catheter through a vein to open a narrowed mitral valve in the heart. This minimally invasive procedure improves blood flow and reduces symptoms of heart valve stenosis.

Invasive Cardiac Procedures : A broad term encompassing various procedures using catheters inserted into the heart and blood vessels for diagnosis and treatment. These can include angiography, angioplasty, and valve procedures.

Cardiac Pacing : Uses a pacemaker, a small implanted device, to regulate the heart's rhythm in patients with bradycardia (slow heart rate) or arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats).

Peripheral Angioplasty : Opens narrowed arteries in the legs or arms using a balloon catheter to improve blood flow and alleviate symptoms like pain, cramping, and numbness.

Pacemaker Implantation : A surgical procedure to place a pacemaker under the skin in the chest to regulate the heart's rhythm.

Mitral/Heart Valve Replacement : Replaces a damaged mitral valve or another malfunctioning heart valve with a prosthetic valve to restore proper blood flow through the heart.

Cardio Thoracic Surgery : Refers to surgical procedures involving the heart, lungs, and surrounding structures in the chest cavity. This can include bypass surgery, valve replacements, and repair of congenital heart defects.

Coronary Angioplasty / Bypass Surgery : Minimally invasive (angioplasty) or surgical (bypass) procedures to open blocked coronary arteries and improve blood flow to the heart muscle, treating angina and reducing the risk of heart attack.
