We offer state of the art facilities for the diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, and management of a broad spectrum of heart diseases and ailments in both adults as well as children. With personalized treatment plans based on the overall health assessment of the patient, we thrive on giving you an experience that is at par with excellence. From the traditional conventional surgery to the new minimally invasive techniques, we offer all kinds of facilities under the same roof.
Our areas of excellence include
- Coronary Angiography – It is a minimally invasive diagnostic procedure that uses x-ray technology to detect any sort of blockage in the arteries. Coronary angiography is one of the most common types of cardiac catheterization procedures, usually recommended to patients experiencing stable or unstable angina or having acute heart attack. Coronary angiography is considered to be a gold standard technique for tracing coronary blockage and deformities and the images generated during the procedure are referred to as angiograms.
- Angioplasty – Also known as percutaneous intervention or percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, it is a catheter-based procedure that aims at restoring the normal flow of blood in the arteries by clearing any sort of blockage or obstruction. Angioplasty is now the gold standard for revascularization of blocked arteries. In some cases, a drug eluting wired-mesh, known as a stent, may be placed alongside to prevent further blockage. Major indications of angioplasty include unstable angina and Acute STEMI.
- Carotid Stenting – The procedure involves the placement of a wired-mesh, known as a stent, in a clogged carotid artery so as to clear the blockage and restore the normal flow of oxygenated blood to the brain.
- ICD Implantation – It involves the surgical implantation of ICD or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, a tiny device that monitors and regulates heartbeats and gives shocks if required in a patient suffering from arrhythmia. Major indications of ICD implantation include cardiac arrest, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.
- Device Closure of ASD, VSD & PDA – ASD (Atrial septal defect), VSD (Ventricular septal defect) and PDA (Patent ductus arteriosus) are congenital heart defects that allow the blood from the left side of the heart towards the right side, as a result of which the heart has to work harder. Device closure is a catheter-based procedure that helps to close such defects and prevent this unhealthy flow of the blood.
- Balloon Valvuloplasty – Also known as balloon valvotomy, it is a minimally invasive procedure that helps to treat narrowed or obstructed valves, it involves the use of a small catheter fixed with a balloon on one of its ends. The catheter is introduced inside the patient’s body via the groin or a small incision made on the patient’s groin and then directed towards the affected valve using imaging guidance. The balloon is inflated to open the narrowed or blocked valve. Once the blockage has been cleared, the catheter is removed along with the balloon. Balloon valvuloplasty is recommended in case of some selected symptomatic valve stenosis.
- Pacemaker Implantation – It involves the surgical placement of a tiny electrical device, known as a pacemaker, in the chest of the patient so as to regulate normal heart rhythms. Pacemaker implantation is recommended to patients suffering from arrhythmia, a condition marked by irregularity in the heartbeats, which is triggered by the poor electrical conductivity of the heart. The pacemaker consists of a pulse generator and leads. The former generates electrical impulses on detecting any abnormality in the heart rhythm and the latter serves as a medium for carrying these impulses to the heart.
- Paediatric Cardiology – Paediatric cardiology is a subspecialty of cardiology, specifically dedicated to the diagnosis, assessment, evaluation, treatment, management and prevention of a wide range of heart conditions and ailments in small children and infants. These include congenital heart defects as well as acquired diseases and ailments.
- Cardiac Rehabilitation and Preventive Health Screening – Cardiac rehabilitation programs focus on reducing the psychological and physiological stress associated with cardiovascular diseases like heart failure, myocardial infarctions and coronary artery diseases, as well as, to enhance cardiovascular function so as to ensure a better quality of life for the patient. The program involves a multidisciplinary team of specialists that works in close coordination to ensure personalized and comprehensive care for the patient. Preventive health screening, on the other hand, involves various tests and screenings to monitor and assess a person’s cardiovascular health.
