Cardiac_Sciences

Our cardiology department is well equipped to treat the disorders of the heart. With our innovative ways to diagnose and treat congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure and valvular heart disease, we offer exemplary cardiac care, so you can be assured of getting the best care in the world. Cardiology services consist of both invasive and noninvasive services.

OUR CARDIOLOGY SPECIALTIES AND SERVICES INCLUDE

    Outpatient Services
  • Management of cardiac patients, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, lipid (cholesterol) disorders and anticoagulation.
    Inpatient Services
  • Backed by round-the-clock coverage in ICUs by intensivists. A state-of-the-art flat panel cath lab is the heart of the invasive and interventional cardiology services

SCOPE OF CARDIOLOGY SERVICES

  • Cardiology services are consultant lead, consisting of both invasive and noninvasive services
  • Outpatient services include management of cardiac patients, hypertension, heart failure, metabolic syndrome, lipid [cholesterol] disorders and anticoagulation
  • Noninvasive services include transthoracic [2D Echo], transesophageal echo, stress echo, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, 24-hour Holter monitoring, and tilt table testing
  • Inpatient services are backed by round-the-clock coverage in ICUs by intensivists. A state-of-the-art flat panel cath lab is the heart of the invasive and interventional cardiology services
  • Diagnostic angiograms are done through radial artery approach [through the blood vessel in the wrist] for the comfort and safety of the patient. Day care angiogram facilities are available so that the patient can go back home on the same day of angiogram
  • Interventional procedures like angioplasty [PTCA], stent implantation are also done through radial artery approach
  • Primary angioplasty [emergency angioplasty for heart attack] is also performed round-the-clock.
  • Complex angioplasties such as bifurcation lesions, CTOs are also tacked with high precision
  • Supporting circulation in very critically ill patients is also done with the help of intra-aortic balloon pump insertion, and ECMO procedure
  • Other high-end devices for complex angioplasty such as rotablator, imaging and physiology-driven angioplasty [OCT and FFR] are also available. Temporary and permanent pacemaker implantation for rhythm disturbances of the heart is also performed in the centre. Devices for heart failure such as ICDs and CRTs are also implanted in the hospital
  • Valvular heart diseases like rheumatic heart disease, aortic stenosis are also dealt with percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty procedures

SCOPE OF CARDIOTHORACIC SERVICES

Cardiothoracic Surgery

The department of cardiothoracic surgery has highly skilled and experienced professionals including cardiac surgeons, anaesthesiologists, nurses, physician assistants, perfusionists and support staff. The unit has two modular operating rooms and an exclusive well-equipped 10-bedded cardiac surgical ICU for patients who have undergone cardiac surgery. Patients not only from different parts of the country come here for treatment, but many travel from across the globe to avail the specialised heart care services offered at SSNMC in Bengaluru.

Apart from routine cardiothoracic procedures like beating heart bypass surgery and valve surgery, cardiac specialists working at SSNMC have immense experience in valve repair, aortic aneurysm repair, arrhythmia surgeries, surgeries for heart failure and pulmonary embolisms. The team also specialises in heart transplants and implants of artificial heart devices.

  • Beating heart coronary bypass surgery
  • Valve replacement
  • Repair of congenital heart defects (septal defects, patent ductus, blue babies)
  • Cardiac tumour excision
  • Pulmonary resection
  • Pleurectomy and decortication
  • Pericardiectomy
Niche Cardiothoracic Surgeries
