Cardiovascular surgery tackles a wide range of heart and blood vessel conditions, from coronary artery disease to congenital heart defects and aneurysms. Their expert surgeons utilize advanced techniques like bypass grafting, valve repair/replacement, angioplasty, stent placement, and even heart transplantation.

Thanks to continuous progress in technology and surgical methods, patient outcomes have significantly improved, leading to shorter recovery times.

Symptoms & Diagnosis

Symptoms of cardiovascular diseases can manifest in various ways, often presenting as chest pain or discomfort, commonly known as angina. Patients may also experience shortness of breath, fatigue, and feelings of dizziness or lightheadedness. Swelling in the legs, ankles, or abdomen can occur due to fluid retention, while an irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia, may be noticed. Some individuals may experience nausea, vomiting, or cold sweats, particularly during episodes of cardiac distress.

Diagnosis of cardiovascular conditions typically involves a thorough assessment of the patient’s medical history and a comprehensive physical examination. Healthcare providers often employ a range of diagnostic tests to confirm the presence and severity of cardiovascular diseases. These may include electrocardiograms (ECGs or EKGs) to measure the heart’s electrical activity, echocardiograms to create images of the heart’s structure and function using ultrasound, and stress tests to evaluate cardiac performance under exertion.
