Dr. Kenji Kawajiri is a world-renowned cardiologist from Japan who has successfully performed thousands of minimally invasive surgeries all over the world to cure CTO.
Dr. Kawajiri visited Athaayu Hospital from the 19th to 23rd June 2017 and made his surgical expertise available to the people in and around Kolhapur. He performed minimally invasive surgeries on typically difficult cardiology patients with multiple blocks or even 100% blocks who had been advised to undergo the bypass or open heart surgery.
Bypass surgery was the only solution till date for cardiac patients who had many arterial blocks, or blocks that are total or 100% in nature.
Minimally invasive procedure offers an easier and economical way to bypass this situation. Hence ‘Bypass the bypass surgery’.
Kolhapur just witnessed the advent of a new era in cardiac care. With Dr. Kenji Kawajiri, the famous and highly successful Japanese cardiologist coming to Athaayu, the cardiac patients in Kolhapur were blessed with a reliable option for bypass surgery.
Dr. Kenji Kawajiri is well known for his ‘Minimally Invasive Procedure’ that provides an effective solution to Chronic Total Occlusion, CTO or 100% arterial blocks. From 19th to 23rd June, 2017 the heart patients in Kolhapur had the opportunity to consult him and get expert guidance and treatment from him. He also operated on many complicated cardiac patients and removed multiple and even 100% arterial blocks with his ‘Minimally Invasive Procedure’, thus eliminating the need for a bypass surgery.

Dr. Kawajiri’s bond with Kolhapur dates back to last year. He had been here on 22nd March, 2016 to deliver a lecture on his ‘Minimally Invasive Procedure’ to the budding surgeons. His knowledge and style of explaining the medical procedure struck a chord with the medical fraternity here. The feeling was mutual and Dr. Kawajiri promised to re-visit Kolhapur, to perform a few complicated cardiac cases. Accordingly, he was here from 19th to 23rd June, 2017.
In the press conference that took place in Athaayu Hospital, Dr. Kawajiri mentioned that he would like to visit Kolhapur next year too and provide his medical expertise to the people of this area.
