Heart Diseases

Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer worldwide?
In the daily humdrum of life, we ignore the signals our body sends. The heart, which is the engine of the body, must be in good condition for us to have a normal healthy life. There are a variety of diseases that afflict the heart, such as:
Coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction (heart attack), ischemic heart disease, arrythmias (heart rhythm disorders), valvular heart disease, rheumatic heart, disease, pulmonary heart disease, hypertension, hypertensive heart disease, congenital heart disease, infective endocarditis, constrictive pericarditis.
Our cardiologists have the necessary expertise and experience for handling all kinds of cardiac emergencies and for the treatment of cardiac diseases at par with international standards.
You will not only receive treatment but also be guided and educated on how to take care of your heart and improve your lifestyle so that you may better benefit from the treatment.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation is the process by which individuals with CVD are restored to, and maintained at, their optimal physiological, psychological, social, vocational, nutritional and emotional status. We believe that a cardiac rehab program assists the cardiac patient in achieving an optimal level of physical and mental health.
The combined educational experience and lifestyle change that each patient takes back into the community after completion of the program, also promotes community health and wellness.

The hospital recently added this service to its prominently known cardiology section, to provide holistic and dedicated treatment to adults with congenital heart problems.  Such adults have spent their lives battling congenital heart problems and need comprehensive care and management from a dedicated specialist in this field.
