She adds that this includes teams from India, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.

“As the year progressed, the complexity of the cases also increased, and much has been achieved. The hospital reached a milestone when the youngest child to have been operated on was a two-week-old baby with a TAPVR operated on just two weeks ago.”

Dr. Tappoo adds that their team has also performed over 16,000 free echocardiograms.
