Department of Cardiology

About

Our Department offers the latest innovations in cardiac care both to out-patients and in-patients of all ages. We provide state-of-the-art tests and procedures to help in giving accurate diagnosis and create treatment plan. We see patients with very common heart problems such as angina, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, peripheral arterial disease and heart failure.

Our Cardiologists use a broad range of treatment options to give each patient the best care possible. These include life style modification recommendations, medications and interventional procedures.

We at the Cardiology Department do regular community outreach programmes for giving awareness and treatment to the most rural parts of this region.

Our out patients 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 advance technology and the best practices in non-invasive Cardiology.
