Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Your child will require surgery in most instances because of size and PAH, otherwise he will have worsening health. You can contact Cardio Surgeons at reputed Hospitals in Kolkata or any place in India. For subsidised treatment you can try Sai Baba Hospital in Bangalore but you may have to wait for few months due to high patient load. Drugs will have to be taken throught life and won't help much in long term. Better choice is Surgery as and if the Baby's Doctor advises.
