Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery (CTVS)


Department of CTVS was started in Justice K. S Hegde Charitable Hospital in December 2007 by Dr. M Gopalakrishnan, Cardiac Surgeon with an experience of more than 20 years in CTVS. Dr. Amith Kiran with an experience of more than 10 years in CTVS joined the department in October 2012. We perform all types of complex Cardiothoracic and vascular procedures. We are one of the leading centers of beating heart CABG in India. We have performed with success almost all types of complex aortic and mitral valve surgeries. We have been regularly doing very complex vascular and thoracic surgical procedures with extremely good results. We have maintained a steady success rate of 97-98% in our surgical results.

We are actively involved in the training of MS, general surgery post graduates.

We are fortunate to have a very dedicated Cardiac Anesthesiology Department headed by Prof. Manjunath Kamath, who has got an experience of more than 10 years in Cardiac Anesthesia.

Department of CTVS is well-equiped with state of the art cardiac surgical and anaesthesia equipments as well as Cardiac Perfusion Equipments. We also got the most modern intra-aortic balloon pumps which are useful as Cardiac Assist Devices. We have got six bedded cardiac ICU with 6 latest five channel monitors, central monitor and ventilators.

We have a team of highly dedicated cardiac operation theatre and intensive care unit nurses and technicians who are involved in the cardiac surgical and post-operative care.
