Testimonials
Spacer
“I found out that I needed an operation for a back problem which was causing severe pain to my left leg from the sciatic nerve. After speaking to my GP and realizing I was getting nowhere I decided to take the matter into my own hands as I could hardly walk. After speaking to private consultants and realizing that without private medical insurance I was not going to be seen to in this country without shelling out around £20,000 I decided to look elsewhere. I decided to look into having the operation privately in India and was fortunate to come across Mediescapes India. From my initial enquiry when I e-mailed my MRI results to Mediescapes India I was amazed ..more.”

Our Medical Consultant’s Panel
Spacer

Cardiac care has become a specialty in India with institutions like the Manipal Heart Foundations, Bangalore, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi becoming names to reckon with. They combine the latest innovations in medical electronics with unmatched expertise in leading cardiologists and cardio-thoracic surgeons as well as specialists for non - invasive ECP Treatment in India. These centers have the distinction of providing comprehensive cardiac care spanning from basic facilities in preventive cardiology to the most sophisticated curative technology. The technology is contemporary and world class and the volumes handled match global benchmarks. They also specialize in offering surgery to high risk patients with the introduction of innovative techniques like minimally invasive and robotic surgery.

Cardiology
is the medical study of the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the heart and blood systems. This includes treating coronary artery disease, or the vessels that provide blood flow to the heart muscle. It also includes treating heart failure, or a weakened state of the heart muscle. It also includes diagnosing and treating valvular heart disease, when one or more of the four valves in the heart become diseased. 

The cardiologists from our institutions have many firsts to their credit including the first coronary artery stenting in Asia, and one of the first laser procedure on the heart in India. Our institutions‘ cardiologists are pioneers in plain balloon and laser angioplasty techniques besides cutting edge technologies like percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation. 

Our institutions have performed more than 200,000 angiograms and 16,000 angioplasties with success rate of 99%. CABG or Heart bypass surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries. Cardiothoracic surgeons have performed more than 49,000 heart surgeries with 98.5% success. The rate for bypass surgeries done over the last one year is 99%. More then 80% of the bypass operation are now done using the beating heart technique. They have also performed more than 3,500 mitral balloon valvuloplasties and 2,500 coronary stents.

Successfully performed a surgery on a 2-day-old baby. There had been more than thousands of such case where the children have undergone this surgery and are living a normal and healthy life.
Representing one of the largest cardiovascular specialty groups in the world - the cardiology department's staff provide patients with the full breadth and depth of cardiovascular care. The conditions operated on include: 
 

  • Heart attacks 

  • Valvular diseases

  • Arrhythmias 

  • Hypercholesterolemia

Interventional cardiology

The department of interventional cardiology provides care for problems as common as a bout of chest pain (angina), as serious as a heart attack (myocardial infarction) and as rare as tricuspid atresia.

The Invasive Cardiology section offers the latest, most technologically advanced diagnostic tests and treatment for Coronary Artery disorders. Artery disorders, using angioplasty, stents, lasers, ultrasound techniques, brachytherapy, Enhanced External Counter pulsation (EECP), angiogenesis, and gene therapy.
Procedures available are: 

  • directional coronary atherectomy 

  • rotablation 

  • coronary artery stenting 

  • intravascular ultrasound 

  • balloon valvuloplasty 

  • non-surgical closure of holes in the heart such as ASD, VSD and PDA. 

Preventive and Rehabilitative Care

Preventive cardiology department of our institutions help both kinds of people- those who already have heart diseases and those who are at high risk of developing it.

In addition to managing cardiac risk using medications, our institutions also prescribe highly individualized lifestyle adjustments that enhance health of an individual.

The prevention program uses new technology in diagnosis and treatment. For example, the department incorporates the use of biochemical and genetic markers of coronary artery disease. our institutions are also currently performing calcium scoring tests ( in collaboration with the department of radiology) on numerous patients.

Other preventive approaches being investigated include the study of newer markers for coronary artery disease, such as homocysteine, CRP and myeloperoxidase (MPO).

Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery

The department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery at our institutions is among the largest and the most prestigious in the world. The department staff works with the latest surgical techniques, equipment and devices.

Each year, our skilled surgeons cater to thousands of patients, young and old, who require virtually every type of heart surgery including,

  • Elective or emergency surgery for aortic aneurysm,

  • Coronary artery disease

  • Valve disease

  • Arrhythmias

  • Heart Failure, Marfan syndrome and other less common conditions.

A large number of patients come with complicated conditions and at end stages. Second and third time bypass surgeries are common at our institutions. The depth and breadth of our experience with all kinds of cases allows our institutions to handle these more complex operations with success rates with International Standards.

DOR's Procedure (Left Ventricular Volume Reduction Operation) and Carotid Enderactectomies :


Our associated team of cardiac surgeons strongly believe that terminal heart failure, mainly due to ischaemic cardiomyopathy, can be corrected by our favourite technic called DOR's Procedure with coronary artery bypass grafting operation. With over 200 Dor's procedures to the team's credit, our team is one of the most experienced in the world in this rare procedure. We also conduct a large series of carotid enderactectomies to improve the blood supply to the brain with bypass grafting operation.

Blue Babies :
India produces the largest number of children in the world. So, going by the incidence of congenital heart disease we produce the largest number of children with heart diseases in the world (approximately 3 lakh children every year). Our team of paediatric cardiac surgeons is one of the most experienced in the world in terms of specializing in operating on children, especially children suffering from this complex heart problem.

Transposition of Great arteries
Heart Surgeries on New Born Babies: India gets referrals from some 21 countries for surgeries in complex heart diseases especially in newborn babies who are barely few hours old. Our associated team of neonatal cardiac surgeons are perhaps few in the world who routinely performs switches and double switches for complex heart problem called Transposition of Great Arteries in newborn babies.

The Ross Procedure
The Ross Procedure, also known as Pulmonary valve translocation, was developed by Donald Ross in 1967.This operation uses the patients own pulmonary valve and part of the main pulmonary artery as a unit to replace the aortic valve and ascending aorta. A homograft valve is harvested from a cadaver, is then placed in the pulmonary position. The pulmonary valve is identical in shape, size, and in fact stronger than the aortic valve and is therefore an ideal replacement for the diseased aortic valve. India has perhaps one of the most experienced surgeons in the World in performing operations like Bental Procedure for Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Arch replacement surgery for dissecting Aneurysm of Aorta.

Ross's Procedure for Aortic Stenosis
Best treatment option for Aortic Stensosis is Ross's Procedure in which the patient's own pulmonary valve is used to replace the aortic valve and in the place of pulmonary valve a homograft taken from a dead body is replaced.

Coronary Artery Neo-Roofing Procedure
There are thousands of patients especially Diabetics, who develop diffuse coronary artery disease, which cannot be grafted surgically. .
