With 560 beds and 14 operating theaters, Indraprastha treats more than 12,000 international patients annually. This Apollo hospital was the first in India to receive JCI accreditation. As a result of the ensuing media coverage, American and Canadian patients are now more frequently seen, interspersed with princes, sheiks, and other VIPs in Apollo's Platinum international waiting lounge. Treatment specialties include cardiology and cardiac surgery, pediatrics, orthopedics, neurology, oncology, and transplantation. Apollo is particularly proud of the latter, with more than 800 kidney transplants and 90 liver transplants to its credit. On the cardiac front, Indraprastha has performed thousands of angiograms, angioplasties, and mitral balloon valvoplasties. Cardiac surgeries carry a 98.5 percent success rate across Apollo, higher than most brand-name U.S. hospitals. A recently acquired 64-slice CT (computed tomography) scanner enables instantaneous, noninvasive angiography procedures at about half the cost of a similar procedure in the U.S. In orthopedics, Apollo has pioneered procedures like total hip and knee replacements and the Birmingham hip-resurfacing technique. While the Birmingham procedure was only recently approved in the U.S., Apollo surgeons have performed hundreds over the past decade, with a 98 percent-plus success rate.
