Department of Cardiology

The Department of Cardiology commenced in our Hospital in the year 2007.

The goal of our Department is to offer the latest innovations in cardiac care to out-patients and in-patients of all ages. The Department aims to use a broad range of treatment options to give each patient the best care possible.

The Department provides state-of-the-art tests and procedures to help in accurate diagnosis and creating treatment plans. It sees patients with a variety of heart problems such as angina, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, peripheral arterial disease, aortic aneurysm and heart failure.

The Department aspires to be one of the best premier centres offering quality healthcare of international standards at a reasonable cost, combining efficiency and effectiveness

Ongoing research on:

  • Molecular analysis of periodontal microbes and their association with atherosclerotic plaques in patients with coronary artery disease.
  • Impact of pharmaceutical care on clinical outcomes and quality of life for coronary heart disease patients in tertiary care teaching hospital.
  • Endothelial dysfunction in patient with periodontitis.
  • Association of lipoprotein (a) in patient with Ischaemic Heart Disease.
  • Correlation between myocardial strain pattern and chronic periodontitis.
  • Association of diet and lipid profile among coronary heart disease patients.

Out Patient Department

The Out Patient Department’s primary mission is to deliver high quality cardiovascular care by listening carefully to all our patient’s concerns and trying to devise the very best evaluation with advanced technology and the best practices in non invasive Cardiology.

Non invasive Workup of patients:

  • ECG
  • Treadmill test (TMT)
  • 2D&4D Echocardiography–both Transthoracic and Transoesophageal
  • Stress Echocardiography&strain rate imaging
  • Holter Monitoring
  • Ambulatory BP Monitoring

The Department has 3 full time Echo Technicians and 4 Nursing Assistants who work in both Out patient and Critical Care Units.

The Department also has 2 cardiac secretaries who work behind the scenes and take care of the reporting, discharge summaries, maintaining cardiac data base of all patients treated on OP and IP basis for the smooth running of the department.

Coronary Care Unit

The Department has the best team of doctors and nurses who provide compassionate, skilled and experienced personal care to each patient. The Department not only takes care of the physical heart but also provides good emotional support both to the patient and the bystanders to make their CCU stay comfortable with the best of our abilities.
