Our Expertise:

  • Interventional Cardiology: Our interventional cardiologists are skilled in performing minimally invasive procedures such as angioplasty, stenting, and catheter-based interventions to treat coronary artery disease and structural heart conditions.
  • Cardiac Electrophysiology: Our electrophysiologists specialize in diagnosing and managing heart rhythm disorders, offering treatments such as ablation procedures and implantation of cardiac devices like pacemakers and defibrillators.
  • Heart Failure Management: Our heart failure specialists focus on the comprehensive care of patients with heart failure, providing advanced medical therapies and evaluating candidates for heart transplantation or mechanical circulatory support.
  • Structural Heart Disease: Our experts in structural heart disease perform complex procedures such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), atrial septal defect closure, and mitral valve repair, offering minimally invasive alternatives to open-heart surgery.
  • Cardiac Surgery: Our cardiac surgeons are proficient in a wide range of surgical procedures, including coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), valve replacement and repair, and heart transplantation.

Disease treated by our experts:

  • Coronary Artery Disease: CAD is a cardiovascular condition characterized by the narrowing or blockage of coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. This restricts blood flow, leading to chest pain (angina) or heart attacks.
  • Heart Attack: Myocardial Infarction (MI) occurs when a portion of the heart muscle is deprived of oxygen-rich blood, often due to a blocked coronary artery. This leads to tissue damage and can be life-threatening.
  • Complete Heart Block: Also known as third-degree heart block, is a serious cardiac condition where electrical signals between the heart's upper and lower chambers are completely blocked. This disrupts the natural rhythm, potentially causing dizziness, fatigue, and fainting.
  • Congestive Heart Failure: CHF is a chronic condition where the heart's ability to pump blood is impaired, leading to fluid buildup in the body. This results in symptoms like fatigue, shortness of breath, and swelling in the extremities.
  • Cardiomyopathy: It is a group of diseases that affect the heart muscle, causing it to become enlarged, thickened, or rigid. This impairs the heart's ability to pump blood effectively. There are different types, including dilated, hypertrophic, and restrictive cardiomyopathy. Causes may be genetic, related to infections, or due to other underlying health conditions.

Top procedures performed by our Experts:

We are committed to providing patients with the most advanced and effective treatment options for cardiovascular conditions. These include:

  • Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting: Our interventional cardiologists employ state-of-the-art techniques to open narrowed or blocked coronary arteries, restoring blood flow to the heart.
  • Angiography: It is a medical imaging technique used to visualize blood vessels in the body. It involves injecting a contrast agent into the bloodstream and then capturing X-ray images to highlight the structure and function of arteries and veins. This procedure helps diagnose and assess conditions like blocked or narrowed blood vessels, aneurysms, and other vascular abnormalities. It guides medical interventions such as stent placement or surgical repairs. 
  • Pacemaker Implantation: It is a surgical procedure used to treat abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). During the procedure, a small electronic device called a pacemaker is placed under the skin near the collarbone. It is connected to the heart with one or more insulated wires (leads) that regulate the heartbeat. When the heart's natural electrical system malfunctions, the pacemaker sends electrical signals to regulate the heart rate, ensuring it beats at a steady and healthy pace. Pacemaker implantation is a safe and effective way to manage certain cardiac conditions and improve the quality of life for patients with arrhythmias.
  • An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator:  ICD is a sophisticated medical device used to monitor and regulate heart rhythm. It is implanted under the skin, typically near the collarbone, with leads connected to the heart. The ICD continuously monitors the heart's electrical activity and can deliver electrical shocks if it detects dangerous arrhythmias, such as ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation. These shocks restore normal heart rhythm and prevent sudden cardiac arrest. ICDs are crucial for individuals at risk of life-threatening arrhythmias and provide a vital safeguard against cardiac emergencies.
  • Electrophysiological Study (EPS) and Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): Electrophysiological Study (EPS) is a diagnostic procedure used to assess the electrical activity and conduction pathways of the heart. During EPS, catheters with electrodes are threaded through blood vessels to the heart. By stimulating the heart and recording its electrical signals, cardiologists can pinpoint irregularities causing arrhythmias.
  1. Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a treatment based on EPS findings. It involves using a catheter to deliver controlled, high-frequency electrical energy (radiofrequency) to specific areas of the heart's tissue. This energy creates a localized burn, disrupting abnormal electrical pathways responsible for arrhythmias.
  2. Electrophysiological Study (EPS) helps cardiologists identify the source of arrhythmias, while RFA offers a targeted solution to correct them. Both procedures are crucial in managing various cardiac rhythm disorders.

Frequently Asked Questions

A cardiologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of heart-related conditions and diseases. They undergo extensive training in cardiology, which involves studying the structure, function, and disorders of the heart and blood vessels.

Common risk factors for heart disease include high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, smoking, diabetes, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, family history of heart disease, and excessive alcohol consumption. Managing these risk factors is crucial for heart health.

Angina is chest pain or discomfort that occurs when the heart muscle doesn't receive enough oxygen-rich blood. It's often a symptom of coronary artery disease, which is a condition where the blood vessels supplying the heart become narrowed or blocked.

A heart attack, medically known as a myocardial infarction, occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart muscle is severely reduced or completely blocked. This can cause damage to the heart muscle. Prompt medical attention is crucial in a heart attack to minimize damage.

While both deal with heart-related issues, there's a distinction in their roles. A cardiologist diagnoses and treats heart conditions using medication, lifestyle changes, and non-invasive procedures. A cardiac surgeon, on the other hand, performs surgical procedures, such as bypass surgeries, valve repairs or replacements, and heart transplants.
