Center for Cardiac Sciences

Overview

The Center for Cardiac Sciences at Bhailal Amin General Hospital is considered one of the best performing units for a multitude of treatments and procedures in Cardiology and Cardiothoracic surgery. It offers a comprehensive range of cardiac care services from preventive care, screening, advanced diagnostic tests, invasive and non-invasive procedures, postoperative management, cardiac rehabilitation, and a full range of surgical programs. Our team of Cardiologists and Cardiothoracic surgeons are trained at renowned institutes, both in India and abroad and are completely dedicated to the treatment of coronary cardiac diseases. Our pioneering work for the prevention and treatment of cardiac diseases has led to the achievement of better outcomes and improved quality of life for thousands of cardiac patients who visit us each year with complex heart problems. Our comprehensive services under one roof, led by a specialist cardiac care team and advanced infrastructure support the complex nature of the care services provided by BAGH. Our third generation Cath Labs, Cardiac Critical Care and Cardiac Thoracic Units overseen by Intensive Care and post-operative care teams, make us the most sought-after cardiac care hospital of the region.

The Center offers these comprehensive services :
Non-Invasive Cardiology :

Non-Invasive Cardiology pertains to cardiovascular evaluation without exposure to the patient's blood. It involves tests which are generally considered as the basic and essential steps towards a cardiac evaluation.

  •  Transthoracic Echocardiography with color Doppler - 2D, 3D
  •  Transeosophageal ECHO - 2D, 3D
  •  Stress ECHO - Dobutamine Exercise
  •  Pediatric Congenital ECHO
  •  Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  •  Holter Monitoring
  •  Computerized Tread Mill Test (TMT)
  •  Ambulatory BP Monitoring
  •  CPET (Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing) VO2 Max
Interventional Cardiology :

Interventional Cardiology pertains to a patient's evaluation which involves exposure to the patient's blood. These are generally considered advanced forms of diagnostic or therapeutic techniques. The procedures under this section are carried out in our well-equipped and high-tech Cardiac Catheterization laboratories.

Cardiac Thoracic Surgery

The cardiac surgical unit performs a wide range of surgeries ranging from open-heart surgeries to aneurysm surgeries with excellent results. The Center has performed numerous cardiac surgeries making it one of the most experienced cardiac surgery centers not only in Vadodara city but also in the state of Gujarat. We do total arterial revascularization of the heart off-pump with varying configurations of arterial conduits such as left/right internal mammary arteries, radial arteries, and gastro-epiploic arteries individualized to patient's requirements.

Off-pump or Beating Heart Surgery

Coronary Bypass Surgeries are performed using contemporary techniques including the off-pump artery bypass surgery. Over 99% of the surgeries are off-pump or beating heart surgeries. During off-pump or beating heart surgery, the heart-lung machine is not used. The surgeon uses advanced operating equipment to stabilize (hold) portions of the heart and bypass the blocked artery in a highly controlled operative environment. Meanwhile, the rest of the heart keeps pumping and circulating blood to the body. Beating heart coronary artery bypass surgery offers patients faster post-operative recovery and takes less of a toll on their systems than traditional cardiac surgery.

Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Surgery

Conventional CABG or coronary bypass surgery is performed by splitting or cutting through the breastbone or sternum. MICAS or MICS CABG which stands for Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Surgery is a relatively new and advanced technique for performing coronary bypasses, and is a safe and complete operation that has revolutionized the way coronary surgery is performed. In this technique the heart is approached through the side of the left chest via a small 4cm incision.

Thoracic Surgery

The Center performs extensive and challenging thoracic procedures with effective results. These include operations for removal of malignancies from the lung and esophagus. With a team led by some of the best cardiothoracic surgeons, we perform minimally invasive procedures on the lung and esophagus as well as Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS).

Heart Valve Surgery

Heart valve replacement is a specialized surgery which is performed for the treatment of abnormalities like Mitral Regurgitation (MR) or Aortic Stenosis. Mitral Regurgitation is a valvular heart disease which results in the abnormal leaking of blood through the mitral valve, from the left ventricle into the left atrium of the heart. Aortic Stenosis is a condition where the aortic valve becomes narrower than normal, impeding the flow of blood. Different types of heart valve surgeries are routinely performed by the Center for Cardiac Sciences at BAGH.
