List of Treatments:

Dr. Nandkishore Kapadia being one of the best cardiac surgeons are offering the following treatments:

  • Cardiac OPD Procedures: Cardiac OPD operations are those that are conducted on a regular schedule and do not need a hospital admission. History taking, examination, blood tests, the electrocardiogram, event evaluation, cardiac stress testing, electrophysiological study, and other procedures are conducted in the cardiac OPD.


  • ECG-Treadmill Test TMT: A cardiac stress test or treadmill test is a cardiology test that assesses the heart's capacity to react to external stress in the context of clinical practice. This is the most basic and easy evaluation of functional response of heart to physical strain. It involves the regular monitoring of blood pressure and cardiac rates of the patient by using an exercise protocols or treadmill or a bicycle. 


  • 24 Hour Holter Monitoring: Holter monitoring is a technique used to assess how the heart reacts to regular activities. The monitor can also be utilised following a heart attack. To identify cardiac rhythm issues that may be producing symptoms like irregular heartbeats or hypotension.


  • Ambulatory BP Monitoring (ABPM): Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is a way of continually monitoring your blood pressure for 24 hours. Even when you sleep, your blood pressure is monitored. The continuous data allows your doctor to receive a more precise view of your blood pressure statistics.


  • Heart Transplant: A heart transplant is a procedure that replaces a failing heart with a healthy donor heart. Heart transplantation is often reserved for patients whose health has not improved sufficiently with medicines or other surgical procedures. While a heart transplant is a significant surgery, with proper follow-up treatment, your chances of survival are strong.


  • Minimal invasive cardiac surgery: It is a surgical procedure in which instead than cutting through the breastbone as in open-heart surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery entails making tiny incisions on the right side of the chest to reach the heart between the ribs. A number of cardiac problems can be treated using minimally invasive heart surgery.


  • ECMO: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a sort of mechanical life support that can assist a person whose lungs and heart aren't working properly. ECMO constantly removes blood from your body and routes it through devices that provide oxygen and eliminate carbon dioxide.


  • VAD: A ventricular assist device (VAD) is a device that assists in the pumping of blood from the heart's lower chambers to the rest of the body. It is used to treat a weak heart or heart failure. A VAD may be used to assist the heart while alternative therapies, such as a heart transplant, are being considered.
