Coronary artery bypass surgery also termed as coronary artery bypass graft surgery and layman may know it as heart bypass or bypass surgery. It is a surgical procedure to restore normal blood flow to an obstructed or narrowed coronary artery. There are two main approaches to this surgical grafting. In one, the left internal thoracic artery is diverted to the left anterior descending branch of the artery while in the second one the great saphenous vein is taken from the leg and inserted in the heart by attaching one end to the aorta and another end to the obstructed artery. This is the most beneficial treatment method for heart patients as successful grafts typically last long 8 to 15 years.
I suffered an injury to a major artery during a surgery on my tummy. I was asked to find a vascular surgeon as the operating surgeon was unable to control the bleeding. I got in touch with Dr. Rashid and he came at 1AM to see me in emergency. He operated on me and saved my life. I had 12 units of blood transfused. I am very grateful to him. He is a thorough professional and expert in his field. I can easily get in touch with him on phone whenever I need. I strongly recommend if anyone needs vascular surgery opinion. Thank You Dr. Rashid for saving my life.
I developed black toes (gangrene) in my toes and I saw Dr. Rashid in Mid City Hospital in Lahore. He operated and saved my leg. I lost my toes but U can still walk on my foot. I am thankful to him for doing bypass on my leg. He is a humble gentleman and good surgeon. I owe my saved leg to him.
Dr. Rashid is an excellent surgeon and a very good person too. Best is that he is approachable to me and has never denied my calls whenever I needed opinion. I had a mild stroke of my left side and was referred to him by my neurologist as I had a blocked vessel in my neck so I was not getting good blood to my brain. He operated on my major vessels in neck and cleared them. Since then I had no further stroke. Alhamdulillah. I am grateful to God and then to Dr. Rashid. Thank you.
My father has diabetic foot and he developed ulcer. I was told that he may loose his toes. I saw dr rashid and he did treatment of my fathers foot. It was some suction therapy . Although it took 2 months but ulcer finally healed and toes were safe.
