Dr. Kshitij Dubey, M.B.B.S., M.S., M.Ch., is an established cardiac surgeon working as a senior consultant at Apollo Hospital, Indore. He is one of the few surgeons, who performs the surgery with an extremely small cut. The small cut surgery is technically known as Minimally Invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass (MIDCAB).
Dr. Kshitij Dubey took special training at Leipzig in Germany for this surgery. The small cut is a boon for the patients as it causes less pain and less blood loss while ensures faster recovery. However, since the technique requires high end skills and training it is still not adopted at most places in India.
Dr. Dubey has successfully performed more than 100 surgeries with the smaller cut establishing its merits and advantages over conventional bypass surgeries. Because of this Indore has come on global map as one of the few centres for the same in India. He has been honoured by many institutes in recognition of his contribution and efforts.
Dr Dubey is an advocate of prevention rather than remedy and is involved in various activities for better life style and awareness programme about heart diseases. He delivers lectures on healthy diet patterns, appropriate exercising and gives demonstration of Basic Life Saving, that is, steps to be taken by laymen during a heart attack (cardiac arrest).
