The cardiology team is highly experienced and extensively trained to treat all kinds of cardiovascular diseases. During your appointment with our cardiologists, you can expect to be advised of some tests or medical procedures depending on your medical condition.
The three main types of cardiology procedures include invasive, non-invasive or interventional procedures. Invasive procedures in cardiology make use of open or minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat heart complications. Some common types of invasive procedures in cardiology include angioplasty and stenting. Non-invasive procedures are those that are used to treat heart problems without the use of any needles, or instruments. Some of the non-invasive procedures of cardiology include- nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, stress tests, heart monitors and CT scans. Interventional procedure in cardiology is also a non-surgical technique that uses a catheter to repair the damaged muscles, weak muscles, narrowed arteries and other affected regions of the heart. Some heart conditions that can be treated through interventional technique include coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease and heart valve disease.
