Interventional Cardiology

Interventional cardiology is a branch of medical specialty that deals with catheter-based treatment of structural heart diseases. Different procedures can be performed on the heart by catheterization. This commonly involves the insertion of a sheath into the femoral or radial artery and cannulating the heart under X-ray visualization. The major advantage of using interventional cardiology is the avoidance of scars, pain and long post-operative recovery associated with surgery.

The Department of Interventional Cardiology has the most advanced facilities backed by a team of highly-qualified interventionalists. The catheterization lab of the department features real time fluoroscope, road mapping and recursive filters along with cine-loop, playback mode, multimap systems, and zooming facilities. The hospital ensures complete patient care during and after the procedure with latest monitoring facilities.
