The modern, fast-paced lifestyle has resulted in a spurt in the number of heart-related ailments among people. This is mainly because of an inactive and unhealthy lifestyle and relying on junk food rich in calories and sugar to get through the day. Here’s where the Department of Cardiology at NIMS Hospitals comes in. With the help of our experienced cardiac surgeons and cardiologists, we endeavor to provide the best treatment to our patients for lasting relief and good health.
The field of cardiology can be divided into two distinct specializations: invasive and non-invasive. Invasive Cardiology is performed to identify and treat structural and electrical abnormalities in the heart. The notable procedures under the purview of invasive cardiology include angioplasty, cardiac ablation, heart catheterisation, pacemaker and implantable defibrillator insertions, electrophysiology and others. On the other hand, non-invasive cardiology focuses on the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, without the use of any needles, fluids or other instruments, through rigorous tests, diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
The Department of Cardiology at NIMS Hospitals is equipped with the latest facilities as well as experienced cardiologists who are accomplished specialists in their respective sub-specialties which enables us to provide the best healthcare and medical service through prompt, accurate diagnosis and evidence-based treatment adhering to international standards. Our healthcare specialists are experts in various aspects of cardiology including interventional cardiology, non-invasive cardiology, minimally invasive surgery and cardiac bypass surgery.
This includes various catheter-based procedures such as balloon angioplasty and use of various cutting and laser devices to remove the plaque accumulated in the arteries and to repair damaged vessels and other parts of the heart structure.
Electrophysiology studies (EPS) are conducted to test the electrical activity of the heart in order to find the source of cardiac arrhythmia or an abnormal heartbeat. Electrophysiologists diagnose and treat arrhythmia using sophisticated interventional procedures such as by implanting of pacemakers and defibrillators.
This sub-specialty deals with the various heart conditions in unborn babies, infants, children and teenagers. The tean of skilled pediatric cardiologists and cardiac surgeons are proficient in various procedures such as tetralogy of fallot treatment, repairing atrial and ventricular septal defect, coarctation of aorta repair, patent ductus arteriosus closure.
Cardiac Ablation: In this procedure, catheters are inserted through a vein in the groin and moved to the heart to rectify the problems causing an arrhythmia.
Coronary Angiography: This is a procedure that uses a contrast material, which is a special dye and X-rays to examine the blood flow in the veins and heart. This is used to identify the regions where there is a blockage of artery.
Cardioversion: This is used to restore regular rhythm of the heart in case the heart has an irregular beat or is beating too fast.
Aortic Dissection Repair: This treatment is used to rectify a tear, or dissection, in the wall of the aorta.
Minimally Invasive Aortiv Valve Replacement: This surgery replaces a damaged aortic valve with an artificial one. It is referred to as “minimally invasive” because it involves making smaller incisions compared to a traditional open repair.
Coronary Thrombectomy: This involves the removal of a blood clot from the coronary arteries.
Congenital Heart Defect Correction: Various conditions such as atrial and ventricular septal defects are managed by this procedure.
