Cardiovascular diseases are a growing concern worldwide, with millions of people affected yearly. Cardiology is a field of medicine that focuses on identifying, managing, and preventing conditions affecting the heart and blood arteries. Cardiology encompasses various conditions, from coronary artery disease and heart failure to heart rhythm disorders and congenital heart defects. Cardiologists focus on treating people with heart disease and collaborate closely with other medical professionals to offer complete cardiac care. With advances in technology and research, cardiology continues evolving and improving outcomes for heart condition patients. At Chord Road Hospital, we understand cardiac issues' impact on your life, which is why our Department of Cardiology is dedicated to providing comprehensive care to patients of all ages.
Our Adult Cardiology Department provides comprehensive care for patients with heart conditions. Our cardiologists use the latest diagnostic and therapeutic methods to treat cardiac disorders, like arrhythmias, heart disease, heart failure, etc. We provide patient-centered care to help our patients improve their cardiovascular health. The following is a list of standard therapies and techniques in adult cardiology:
The heart's electrical activity is examined in cardiac electrophysiology, a subspecialty of cardiology. With few heart rhythm disorders, our heart Electrophysiology department uses cutting-edge technology and experience to diagnose and treat bradycardia, ventricular tachycardia, and atrial fibrillation. Our team includes skilled electrophysiologists who perform complex procedures, such as ablation and device implantation, to restore normal heart rhythm and prevent future complications.
Some common treatments and methods in cardiac electrophysiology include the following:
Diagnosing and treating aberrant heart rhythms are the focus of clinical cardiac electrophysiology, a subfield of cardiac electrophysiology. Patients with complicated cardiac arrhythmias, including those with underlying structural heart disease, are given comprehensive treatment by our Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology department. Our team uses advanced diagnostic tools and cutting-edge treatment strategies to provide patients with the finest care possible.
Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology includes the following treatments and Procedures
Cardio Geriatrics is a specialized field that focuses on the intersection of cardiovascular health and ageing. Our Cardio Geriatrics department provides comprehensive care for older adults with cardiovascular conditions like heart disease, hypertension, and heart failure. Our cardiologists collaborate closely with other medical professionals to create customized treatment programs considering each patient's requirements and objectives. We are dedicated to assisting our patients in preserving their quality of life and cardiovascular health as they age.
The following is a list of common medications and procedures in cardiac geriatrics:
Our Cardiology department provides a range of diagnostic tests, including ECG, echocardiography, stress tests, and cardiac catheterization.
The duration of a cardiac procedure or surgery depends on the specific procedure and the patient's condition. Your cardiologist will provide you with an estimated duration during the consultation.
The recovery period for a cardiac procedure or surgery varies depending on the procedure performed. Your cardiologist will provide you with specific post-procedure instructions and guidance.
