Because the cardiovascular system’s functions are vitally important for our physical health and our life in general, we should turn to highly skilled medical professionals for diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
The Cardiology Department has an excellent team of world-class medical professionals, enjoying well-deserved recognition among their international peers. The latest technologies and innovations in the fields of cardiology and cardiosurgery are promptly and expertly implemented here.
Our skilled medical experts use the most sophisticated equipment to establish an accurate diagnosis and provide the most efficient medical care to patients with cardiovascular disorders such as angina, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmia, heart valve disorders, chronic heart failure, aneurysm of thoracic aorta, congenital heart defects, etc. Our dedicated team of medical professionals will do everything they can to help you stay healthy for many years to come.
At our Cardiology Department , cardiovascular system disorders are diagnosed and treated using advanced diagnostic procedures and 21st century technologies, such as intravascular ultrasound evaluation of coronary vessels, echocardiography, virtual coronarography (heart CT scan), diagnostic angiography of coronary arteries, electrophysiological evaluation, magnetic resonance tomography, etc., allowing us to obtain a clear clinical picture and begin treatment as soon as possible.
Interventional cardiologists at our medical center are considered the most prominent specialists in their field. They use innovative endovascular diagnostic and treatment techniques for cardiovascular disorders, such as placement of stents with antithrombotic coating, implanting of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, transcatheter aortic calve replacement (TAVI), etc. These techniques enable them to manage cardiovascular disorders with minimal damage to vessels and a significantly lower risk of side effects and complications.
Our cardiac surgeons successfully perform the most complex surgical procedures, including total coronary artery bypass grafting with or without heart and lung machine, minimally invasive endovascular surgeries, valve replacement or valvuloplasty, ventricular septal defect surgery, and many other procedures.
Our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons focus additional efforts on the rehabilitation process. Individualized rehabilitation programs are developed to address each patient’s specific needs.
