The Centre of Excellence in Cardiac Sciences at Aster CMI Hospital offers a complete range of cardiac care services – from the delicate needs of an infant, to the complex requirements of a senior citizen - it covers every area. A combination of its state-of-the-art facilities, the latest techniques and highly skilled medical practitioners ensures patients receive the best medical care possible. Aster CMI provides surgical and interventional treatments for a wide range of cardiac diseases like heart attacks (coronary heart disease), heart failure, atrial fibrillation or arrhythmia, and congenital heart diseases, such as atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, AV canal defect and total anomalous drainage of pulmonary veins. Angiograms, coronary angioplasty, Mitral valve repair/replacement, Aortic valve repair/replacement and bypass surgery (CABG) are the standard heart procedures/surgeries performed at Aster CMI with great expertise. However, what makes us one of the best heart hospitals in Bangalore is the expertise to handle the highly complex cases of paediatric cardiac surgeries, aortic aneurysms and heart transplants with equal expertise.
Cardiac surgeries were once about incisions that were made across the chest cavity, leaving ghastly scars. With time and improvement in technology, minimally invasive heart surgeries (MICS) have now become a norm, especially at Aster CMI.
Taking things further, the hospital is the only one in Karnataka that has introduced Robotic cardiac surgeries, particularly for valve repairs. The Cardiac Services Department functions with a core team of cardiovascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists and paediatric cardiologists. They are further supported by a team of the best clinical cardiologists, cardiac anaesthesiologists, interventional radiologists, cardiac intensivists and rehabilitation therapists. The Cardiac Sciences Department at Aster CMI Hospital is among the first in the city to have a Hybrid Cath Lab, which allows for complex procedures incorporating intervention and surgeries required on a patient to be performed in a single space. The patient here has to stay stationary. From dedicated Operation theaters, a low radiation cath lab, facilities such as a Cardiovascular Surgery ICU to a Critically lll Cardiac Care Unit, everything you need is available for a patient’s complete care. Open round-the-clock, all through the year, Aster CMI has Cardiac specialists available at any time, for any form of cardiac emergency. From surgeries to timely interventions or procedures related to the heart, you can be sure that Aster CMI has the expertise and technology to handle it all; living up to the credit of being a leading multi-specialty hospital in Bangalore.
