The Cardiologist plays a pivotal role in the long-term treatment of patients with cardiovascular problems.
The DESUN Cardiology team is headed by eminent doctors and highly trained fulltime consultants who blend clinical experience with expertise. Patients can also consult cardiologists at the hospital's Out-Patients' Department (OPD). Where necessary, consultations between doctors / referrals may be made to enable a faster and more accurate diagnosis.
Cardiac treatment is backed by a full range of sophisticated diagnostic equipment. Apart from the routine Treadmill, Echo-cardiography and Colour Doppler studies, DESUN has also performed radial Angioplasty and radial angiography with stenting which is a rare phenomenon in this part of the country.
Here the catheter is guided through the wrist instead of the thigh. It is a relatively new process and DESUN is one of the few hospitals in Kolkata where radial angiography is being performed very successfully. It is relatively less painful than conventional angiography and overnight hospital stay is not required. At DESUN we have the necessary expertise and equipment to perform such a complicated procedure.
We are one of the first hospitals in Kolkata to have performed radial angioplasty successfully. Here the catheter is guided through the wrist and then standard Angioplasty procedures are followed. It lessens chances of infection and haemorrhage.
