Q: Am I a candidate for heart surgery?
A: At the Department of Cardiology, our experts provide medical management, treatments or lifestyle modification guidelines to help treat your condition. If these treatments have not worked for you, or can’t be used to treat your cardiac condition, heart surgery might be an option. In such instances, our specialists will work with you to decide whether heart surgery is the best treatment option for you.
Q: What are the risks of heart surgery?
A: While our hospital offers stellar results for heart surgery, it is important to understand that as with any other surgery, this too, comes with risks. Some of these include bleeding, inflammation or infection, a reaction to anaesthesia, damage to other organs or in rare cases, death. However, these risks are higher if surgery is performed in emergency situations, or if the patient has underlying conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, lung disease, or peripheral arterial disease. Before finalising on surgery, our specialists go over the potential risks with you and help determine the course of treatment that’s best for you.
Q: How soon should someone be treated if they suffer from a heart attack?
A: Heart attacks refer to the death of heart muscle and are caused by a block in the artery. Current technology allows for the re-opening of blocked arteries to preserve heart muscle and thereby heart function. For this purpose, we highly recommend that medical help be sought as soon as chest pain and associated symptoms occur. Most often, heart attacks treated in the earliest possible time frame have the best chances for a smooth, swift recovery.
