My surgery was a complete success resulting in a “perfectly repaired” valve. The Minimally invasive approach definitely allowed me to recover much more quickly than a traditional approach would have done. After 3 weeks I pretty much felt back to normal and felt frustrated at having to wait to be able to ride again!
In summary Mr Birdi is both an excellent surgeon and an outstanding doctor. Words cannot express how reassured I felt from the moment I first discussed my condition with him, and I am eternally grateful that his skill as a surgeon was available to me.
