About me

Senior Cardiothoracic Surgeon; Head, Adult Cardiothoracic surgery, Sakra World Hospital, Bangalore, India

Dr. Adil Sadiq has the distinction of probably being the only Cardiac surgeon in South India who is trained in Robotic Cardiac surgery. He is one of the very few surgeons in the country, who has extensive experience in minimally invasive cardiac surgery, including endoscopic approaches and is one of the very few surgeons performing Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) in this part of the country. He has considerable experience with Percutaneous Transcatheter Implantation of an Aortic Valve (valve replacement via the groin), being part of the team that had pioneered its clinical use. He has performed over 4500 Cardiac Surgeries, 1600 thoracic procedures and 65 Heart and Lung Transplants which speak volumes about his success in critical surgeries.
