About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Vascular Surgery at the Primus Super Speciality Hospital New Delhi offers high-quality services for the diagnostics and treatment of the full range of cardiovascular diseases. In addition to qualified medical personnel, the department has modern diagnostic equipment, operating rooms for interventional procedures and intensive care units equipped with the necessary advanced technologies. All this forms a solid basis for the provision of excellent medical services. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Harsh Wardhan.
The key to successful treatment is a comprehensive diagnostics, and therefore, the department offers patients all the modern diagnostic examinations for the detection of the slightest deviations in the heart work. These include all types of electrocardiography, echocardiography, chest radiography, Holter monitoring, etc.
Whenever possible, the department's cardiologists use optimal non-invasive treatment methods. In addition to the intake of medications, a patient should have a lifestyle modification. He is recommended to eat properly, perform moderate physical exercises, as well as give up bad habits, for example, smoking.
However, it is not always possible to restore normal heart function using conservative therapy methods. In this case, the patient is indicated sparing interventional treatment or surgery. The department's specialists have extensive experience in modern invasive cardiac procedures. The most common are cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, stent implantation, balloon valvuloplasty, coronary angiography, peripheral angiography, atherectomy, temporary pacemaker, implantation of permanent cardiac pacemaker (PCP) and placement of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD).
In addition, the department employs top-class cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons who have a perfect command of all techniques for performing operations on the heart and other thoracic organs. The surgical treatment of cardiovascular diseases in children is performed by a specially trained team of pediatric surgeons. The surgical interventions are carried out in ultramodern operating rooms with innovative equipment and monitoring systems.
