Cardiology hospital in Hebbal, Bangalore


Cardiology is the medical division or speciality that deals with diagnosing and treating ailments and diseases related to heart disorders. The cardiovascular system comprises the heart and blood vessels. It also goes by the name of the circulatory system. A doctor who specialises in problems with the circulatory system is called a cardiovascular specialist. Cardiology is a branch that deals with diseases, defects, and disorders in the heart and cardiovascular system. These disorders could include artery disease, heart failure, electrophysiology and congenital heart defects. A cardiologist is a medical expert trained to diagnose and treat conditions that affect the cardiovascular system. It is done through blood tests, echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging, stress tests or echocardiography. Cardiologists are also trained to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures and treatments like angioplasty, a pacemaker, and heart catheterisations. Cardiac surgeons, on the other hand, are trained in surgical aspects like opening the chest, performing heart surgery, valve replacement, and more. Cardiologists and cardiac surgeons are medical experts and specialists in treating ailments and diseases of the heart. The division of cardiology at Manipal Hospitals, Hebbal, has qualified, skilled and trained professionals who are experts in the field of cardiology to assist patients right from the diagnosis stage to prognosis.

Research shows that only 0.2% of patients have this condition among those with acute myocardial infarction. The chances of survival, even with intervention, is also significantly less. Surgical repair is suggested…

FAQ's

After gathering general information about the patient's health from our cardiologist will review the patient's medical history, and do a complete physical examination. Then the doctor might order the necessary investigations to determine the health of your heart.

Cholesterol, Hypertension, Obesity, Diabetes, Smoking, Family history of heart disease

Mild discomfort or pain in the chest area, it may radiate to the neck, jaw, or arm on the left side of the body and is usually associated with shortness of breath, nausea, and sweating. Diabetics and women may not have chest discomfort but may have only a few of the associated symptoms.

Some illnesses can cause heart disease, but a majority of heart diseases can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Yes, a yearly health check-up that includes a blood pressure check, lipid, and cholesterol test and a discussion with your doctor about other risk factors should not be overlooked.

It is helpful to work out Body Mass Index (BMI) so that risk factors can be assessed for heart disease and an appropriate diagnosis can be made. Weight is also checked to calculate the correct dose of drugs and medications. It is essential to be equally aware of any medication currently being taken and any that have been altered to decide the line of treatment. Current medications must be known to understand if any tablet needs to be changed or stopped before the procedure.

An electrocardiogram is the ECG heart tracing and checks for any inconsistencies in the functioning of the heart. It is a vital part of clinical assessment and allows doctors to diagnose the patient’s situation thoroughly.

Treatment is typically started with non-surgical therapies wherever necessary and possible. However, suppose these methods are insufficient to alleviate the symptoms. In that case, sue treatment plan will be surgery may be considered based on a patient’s symptoms, medical history, age, existing medical conditions, the severity of the condition, and the patient's personal preferences. After the diagnosis, a team of expert doctors and cardiologists will discuss the best treatment for the patient. The treatment options will be explained in detail in a straightforward and caring manner for the patient to make the best decision.

Every operation will be different and will depend on the patient’s condition. The patient will have enough opportunity to discuss their condition with the surgeon. Patients will be given a complete view of the situation in the outpatient and inpatient departments before any procedure.

The patient’s appointment with the surgeon will give ample time to discuss the options available to treat their medical condition. Apart from surgery, several other alternatives will be considered. Options could include the following-

  • Medication alone

  • Stents for coronary artery disease

  • Minimal invasive surgery

  • Repair or replacement of valves

  • Biological tissue versus mechanical valves for replacement

Most patients will be given a follow-up check routine so that the doctor can constantly monitor the patient’s recovery. Usually, the first check-up will occur between 6-8 weeks after the surgery. Check-ups will include x-rays, blood tests, electrocardiograms or an echocardiogram. Once the surgeon is convinced that the patient is on the road to recovery, they will advise them of their medication and ask them to continue visiting regularly. If a valve has been replaced, the cardiologist will ensure that the patient is constantly checked to see if the heart is functioning effectively.

Manipal Hospitals is dedicated to providing high-quality, personalised care and building long-term partnerships with its patients. Our Cardiology department and its patients are a testament to this.
