Cardiology is a medical specialty and a subspecialty of internal medicine that deals with cardiac problems. It covers problems such congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, electrophysiology, heart failure, and valvular heart disease, as well as its diagnosis and treatment. Our best cardiologist experts are specialized in diagnosing and treating disorders of craiovascular system. Cardiovascular disease affects the heart, blood arteries, or both, whereas heart disease affects only the heart. We have the top cardiologist in Hyderabad who builds the most effective treatment plan for each patient. We are at the forefront of heart care of experience, competence, and excellence, whether it’s minor problems, sophisticated surgical treatments, or even highly critical crises can be cured.
We have best cardiologist in Hyderabad who covers all areas Interventional cardiology, paediatric cardiology, vascular interventions, valvular interventions, pacemaker implantations, and interventional radiology. A patient with a heart condition requires a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. We have a committed staff of qualified nurses, technologists, dieticians, and rehabilitation professionals to help us do this. Cardiac problems are difficult to identify because they are so complex. To assess the patients' conditions and determine treatment outcomes, we use modern and high-precision diagnostic techniques such as cardiac ultrasound, diagnostic angiography, cardiac CT and MRI, stress echocardiography, electrophysiological studies, and cardiac biomarker testing.
Cardiac Insititute at Medicover Hospitals India is one of the best hospitals that an individual can rely on. We acknowledge the importance of keeping your heart in good condition. Medicover Hospitals' Cardiology Department is one of the best in the city, providing superior care, effective treatment, and enhanced quality of life for our patients.
A cardiologist is a doctor who diagnoses, Valves, Vessels, Wall and Conduction System assess and treats the patients with the diseases and defects of the hearts and blood vessels.
The cardiologist may recommend you to perform some specific tests such as Echocardiogram and Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).
Cardiac surgery is recognised to be extremely dangerous and should only be conducted by medical professionals who have undergone extensive training.
After seeing a cardiologist, he may advise you to return for a follow-up visit based on the severity of the problem or for a routine checkup.
The heart specialist may ask you to go through some specific tests if you are having blocked arteries such as:
Chronic total occlusion (CTO) is the complete blockage of one or more coronary arteries. The blockage is typically present for at least three months, is caused by a buildup of plaque within a coronary artery. This prevents the free flow of blood to the part of the heart, which is supplied by that artery. Without enough blood flow, the heart does not receive oxygen and nutrients, which compromises its functionality resulting in chest pain (angina).
A tiny angioplasty catheter is inserted into the damaged coronary arteries during a complicated coronary intervention. One of our experts will carefully direct the angioplasty catheter where the coronary artery is at its narrowest using modern imaging technologies.
PCI stands for percutaneous coronary intervention, which is a group of minimally invasive techniques for clearing congested coronary arteries.
A coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is a surgical procedure for the treatment of coronary artery disease. It helps to enhance blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart by diverting blood around blocked or congested portions of the major arteries.
TAVR (Transcatheter aortic valve replacement) is a procedure that uses a catheter to implant a new valve within your diseased aortic valve. Patients with severe aortic stenosis, or a narrowing of the aortic valve in the heart, may benefit from surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR).
In few studies as well as high-risk patients, TAVR has been shown to be more effective than regular SAVR therapy.
Complex coronary artery disease (CAD) is defined as a condition that does not respond to percutaneous coronary intervention or routine surgical treatment. Reoperative CABG, coronary endarterectomy, calcified aorta, and transmyocardial laser revascularization are all conditions for complicated CAD (TMR).
