Frequently Asked Questions

The different specialists in the Cardiology department may include the following:

  • Interventional Cardiologists focus mainly on minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat various heart conditions.
  • Cardiac Surgeons deal with coronary artery bypass grafting, heart valve repair or replacement, and surgeries to address structural abnormalities.
  • Cardio Thoracic and Vascular Surgeons deal with the diseases or complications of ischemic heart disease, treat valvular heart disease, or correct congenital heart disease.
  • Non-Invasive Cardiologists measure cardiac output to assess the overall performance of the heart, identify any abnormalities, and develop tailored treatment plans accordingly.
  • Electrophysiologist deals with disorders that can range from harmless irregular heartbeats to life-threatening conditions.

Many times, one doctor has more than one specialty. You can consult with that specialist, depending on your condition.

  • Nuclear stress test or echo stress test reports
  • Echocardiogram
