Mr. Birdi performed mitral valve repair, tricuspid valve repair and left atrial appendage closure on me during a 5 hour operation at Basildon hospital in May. The operation had been delayed by 7 days because I was not told in advance to stop taking anti-coagulant medication. Keyhole surgery was considered too risky in my case because 2 valves needed repair. Surgery was completely successful with no complications and very little pain or discomfort. Mr. Birdi and his team treated me with great respect and made me feel that I was getting special treatment. Totally professional and highly recommended.
