Vision & Mission

  • WARIS Community Intervention Services Program, the program is for healthy people to assess their risk factors for heart-disease for future because the world`s largest number of Heart Disease Patients are in India. Those future patients are currently in latency. We want to detect Risk so that we can Intervene and prevent it. To nip the evil in the bud. WARIS is charitable by intent and its mission statement is to STOP HEART ATTACK .   WARIS is doing this as part of social service. Doctors from Interventional Cardiology Consultants Inc and World`s Best Cardiology Team and various hospitals are involved in this mission.

    This is entirely voluntary and charitable contribution by the doctors and other workers attached with it. WARIS has run charitable Clinics and done Free Heart Check camps, Public Awareness Programs and Continuing Medical Education(CME) Programs for Physicians, Cardiologists and General Practitioners in Rewari, Bhiwadi, Agra, Alwar, Chomu, Gurgaon, Hisar, Kota, Jhansi, Jaipur, Sri Ganganagar, Jodhpur ,Lucknow, Bikaner, and even Kolkata.

    As you are well aware, India will have the largest number of patients of Heart disease. This is indeed a disaster and much needs to be done to create awareness about the `Dos and Don’ts ` to prevent heart attack. Awareness also needs to be created about the symptoms of a heart attack and what can be done at the grass root level as 1st Aid to optimize chances of survival for the patient and reduce his heart muscle loss.

    By spreading our message of `Do`s and Don’ts`, the campaign will not only save millions of lives , it will also save millions of homes and also prevent millions of children from becoming destitute because of loss of breadwinner in the family as a result of heart disease.

    WARIS also promotes Transradial Intervention, and conducts workshops called India Radial Blitz, since 2007. It is supported and aided by its International patrons in Netherlands, North America. USA, the UK, Macedonia and France, in this endeavor. The 1st workshop was held at Escorts Heart Institute, New Delhi in 2007. At the India Radial Blitz 2008, at Apollo Hospital, New Delhi the theme was `Size matters`. In 2009-2011, the meeting was held at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, New Delhi and at Fortis Escorts Kalyani heart Institute, Gurgaon. A special consensus issue on transradials was published in JIMA in 2009. Stalwarts like Dr David Hilton, Dr Tift Mann, Dr Yves Louvard have contributed significantly to the cause for which a lifetime achievement award was given to Dr Hilton in 2009. Thereafter the Radial conference came to be known as RADIAL LIVE and has been held every year. In 2013, for the first time in the world outside Japan, transradial angioplasty was done using 4F guiding catheters in the workshops of Radial Live.  9 live cases were done including transradial left main angioplasty and transradial rotablation.
