Cardiology

A medical category specialising with disorders of the heart, cardiology is a field that includes diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects and other heart-related diseases. Cardiologists are physicians who specialise in this particular field of medicine.

Cardiological Services

- Cardiac electrophysiology - the study of the heart beat and rhythm

- Echocardiography

- the study of the structure, mechanical and muscular function of the heart via ultrasound technology

- Interventional cardiology

- minimally invasive treatment of structural, coronary and vascular issues via use of small catheters, stents and mechanical devices

- Nuclear cardiology - the study of myocardial blood flow and contractility of the heart during restful and exercised states via small radioactive tracer imagery

Assessment and Diagnostic Tools

Our patients access to a wide variety of cardiovascular assessment and diagnostic tools at their disposal through our cardiological specialist department. With tools such as the Electrocardiogram (EKG) and various other stress tests, our cardiologists can determine a wide range of heart and blood vessel disorders.

Heart size and funcion is also determined by Echocardiograms, while ultrasounds help evaluate the blood flow to parts of the body. If narrowing of the arteries are a concern, cardiac catheterisation helps our specialists zero in and determine the problem areas. We also provide a variety of therapeutic procedures to aid the restoration of blood flow in the arteries via methods such as angioplasty (blood vessel widening), atherectomy (arterial plaque removal), and arterial stent and balloon inflation placements.

Our specialty department also includes pacemaker and defibrillator implantation to help improve heart function as well as normalise heart rhythm depending on the patient's individual needs. A full range of vascular treatments for various peripheral conditions and diseases such as blocked arteries, aneurysms and strokes can be proposed by our panel of vascular surgeons.

Cardiothoracic Surgery

Cardiologists work together with our team of dedicated cardiothoracic surgeons and are trained to perform a wide range of procedures on the lungs, chest wall, diaphragm and heart. This specialty is exclusively for the treatment of diseases, trauma, and congenital or acquired heart and vessel deformities.

Certain diseases benefit greatly from such cardiothoracic procedures and include but are not limited to arterial blockage, valvular disorder, aneurysms and congenital heart defects such as the prolapse of mitral valves.

Our team is specialised and trained to the highest calibre and consists of cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, intensivists and anaesthetists in order to provide every patient the top-quality care Gleneagles strives to offer.

Caregiving team

We also have a dedicated team of compassionate and highly-trained physicians as well as nurses to help provide the most comprehensive rehabilitative care for all our patients, ensuring nothing but a successful outcome to every unique cardiological surgery.
