Introducing our state-of-the-art cardiology center, equipped with the latest technology and staffed by a team of highly trained and experienced cardiologists and nurses. Our facility features a dedicated cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) for patients with critical cardiac conditions, as well as a cutting-edge cath lab for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

The CICU is designed to provide the highest level of care for patients with heart attacks, heart failure, arrhythmias, and other cardiac emergencies. The unit is staffed 24/7 by a team of specially trained nurses and cardiologists, and equipped with advanced monitoring and life support technology to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

The cath lab is equipped with the latest imaging technology, including digital angiography and 3D mapping systems, which allow our cardiologists to perform a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, such as angiograms, angioplasties, and stent placements. The lab also features advanced imaging software and specialized equipment to perform complex procedures such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

Our cardiology center also offers a wide range of non-invasive diagnostic tests such as Echocardiography, stress tests, Holter monitor and other specialized tests. Our team of cardiologists and nurses work together to provide comprehensive and coordinated care, from initial diagnosis to post-operative follow-up.

In addition, our facility is equipped with the latest technology, such as telemedicine capabilities and electronic health records, which enable us to provide the most advanced care to our patients. We also offer a cardiac rehabilitation program to help patients recover after a cardiac event or surgery.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality care to our patients in a comfortable and patient-centered environment. We invite you to come visit our center and see for yourself why we are the premier choice for cardiac care in the region.

Common general surgery procedures

This is a therapeutic procedure that is used to open blocked or narrowed coronary arteries and improve blood flow to the heart. During the procedure, a catheter with a small balloon at the end is inserted into a blocked coronary artery, and the balloon is inflated to compress the plaque and widen the artery. A metal mesh tube called a stent is often left in the artery to help keep it open.

This is a procedure in which a small, thin tube called a catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel and guided to the heart. The procedure is used to diagnose and treat a variety of cardiac conditions, such as blocked coronary arteries, heart valve problems, and congenital heart defects.

This is a diagnostic procedure that uses X-ray imaging to create detailed images of the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart. During the procedure, a thin, flexible tube called a catheter is inserted into an artery in the leg or arm, and guided to the heart. A contrast dye is then injected through the catheter, and X-ray images are taken to show the inside of the coronary arteries.

Cardiac bypass surgery, also known as coronary artery bypass surgery or CABG (pronounced “cabbage”), is a procedure used to improve blood flow to the heart. It is typically used to treat coronary artery disease, which is a condition in which the coronary arteries (the blood vessels that supply the heart with oxygen-rich blood) become narrowed or blocked due to the buildup of plaque.

During the surgery, a healthy blood vessel from the patient’s own body, such as the saphenous vein from the leg or the internal mammary artery from the chest, is grafted to bypass the blocked coronary artery. This creates a new pathway for oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart muscle, bypassing the blocked vessel. This improves blood flow and can reduce the symptoms of coronary artery disease such as chest pain and shortness of breath.

It is a major surgery and is usually done under general anesthesia. It typically takes several hours to complete and patients usually stay in the hospital for a week or two to recover.

This is a procedure that is used to diagnose and treat abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias. During the procedure, special catheters are inserted into the heart through a vein in the leg or arm, and used to record electrical signals in the heart. Abnormal signals can then be located and treated by destroying small areas of heart tissue that are causing the arrhythmia.

This device is a small battery-powered device that is placed under the skin of the chest, near the collarbone. it’s designed to monitor the heart’s rhythm continuously and if it detects a dangerous rhythm it delivers a shock to restore the normal rhythm.

A pacemaker is a small device that is implanted in the chest to help regulate the beating of the heart. It uses electrical impulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. Pacemakers are typically used to treat arrhythmias, or abnormal heart rhythms, such as bradycardia (a slow heart rate) or atrial fibrillation (an irregular heart rhythm). The pacemaker is connected to the heart via one or more wires, called leads, that are threaded through a vein and positioned in the heart. The device is powered by a small battery and is controlled by a computer chip that is programmed to deliver the appropriate electrical impulses to the heart.

This is a procedure that uses a catheter to replace a narrowed or diseased aortic valve, which is the main valve that controls blood flow out of the heart. A new valve is mounted on the end of a catheter and guided through a large artery to the heart. Once the new valve is in place, it expands to replace the old valve.
