What is the Cost of Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Surgery in India?

Atrial septal defect (ASD), a congenital heart defect, is also known as a "hole in the heart". It is a critical situation and that’s why a patient needs proper assessment. India, being one of the best medical tourism destinations attracts patients from all over the world because of high-end medical services at an affordable price. The cost of ASD closure surgery in India is less than one-sixth of what it costs in Western countries. This cost includes surgeon fees, anaesthesia charges, OT charges, medical consumables and hospital stay for a specified number of days.

For Indian patients, the price ranges from approximately INR 1.5 lakhs to INR 4.0 lakhs, while the same procedure costs USD 4,000 to USD 6,000 for international patients. 

However, the prices may vary depending on various factors, including the type of hospital, the doctor's expertise, the severity of the condition, etc.

About ASD Closure

Every baby is born with a small opening in the wall between the heart's two upper chambers. This hole usually closes a few weeks or months after birth. However, sometimes, a baby is born with a larger hole that does not close properly, so to close the heart hole, a Paediatric cardiac surgeon does a surgical procedure.

ASDs are typically identified in the first year of life, they can also be diagnosed later in childhood and, on occasion, even in adulthood. Regardless of when the condition is discovered, it is important to closely monitor and provide appropriate treatment for ASDs by cardiac surgeons.

What are the Different Types of ASD Closure Surgery?

ASD closure surgery is suggested to repair a medium to large defect to prevent complications. The surgery can be performed in the following two ways:

  • Catheter-based repair: This type of ASD repair is performed to fix the secundum type of atrial septal defects. 
  • Open-heart surgery: This type of ASD repair surgery is the only way to fix sinus venous, primum, and coronary sinus atrial defects. 

Please note: Your surgeon will recommend the most suitable procedure, depending on your condition.

After discovering that our baby had a heart defect, we reached out to Marengo Asia Hospital. The surgery was successful, and our baby is recovering well. My baby was diagnosed with a heart defect when she was just six months old. We came to India and consulted Dr. Rajesh Sharma. He performed a successful surgery. She is recovering well now.
