Interventional Cardiology:

The Interventional Cardiology Center is manned by Senior Cardiologist trained in India and abroad. Coronary Stenting is routine and performed by most of the Interventional Cardiologists. Patients with high risk and multi vessel involvement are also treated.Primary Angioplasty, an approach of opening blocked coronary artery during acute myocardial infarction, in place of thrombolysis is practiced in suitable cases. The cardiologists have performed over 10000 angiographies and over 4000 coronary angioplasties since establishment.Non-coronary intervention deals with a variety of cardiovascular abnormalities. Subclavian, iliac, femoral and carotid artery balloon angioplasty and stenting are being performed. Vascular dissection and aneurysm repair are also conducted with covered stents.


Cardiothoracic Surgery involves the treatment of diseases affecting organs inside the Chest (thorax), including treatment of conditions of the heart (heart disease) and lungs (lung disease). The Center of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Suguna Hospital, is a Center of Excellence, which attracts thousands of patients and performs virtually every type of heart surgery.

The Center has performed substantial no. of surgeries making it one of the most experienced heart care centers in Bangalore. The cardio surgical unit has performed a wide range of surgeries - from neonatal open heart surgeries to aneurysm surgeries to heart transplants, with excellent results.


CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft)

A form of Heart Surgery that redirects blood around clogged arteries to increase blood flow and oxygen to the heart. This offers patients faster post-operative recovery with fewer complications. The Cardiac Surgeons at Suguna Hospital have great expertise and experience with CABG Surgeries. We are versatile and handle critically ill patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction or diffusely diseased vessels. As we avoid the heart - lung machine, we can take on patients for CABG even when there are associated morbidities such as renal disease, compromised lung function or other coexisting diseases. We do total arterial revascularization of the heart off-pump with varying configurations of arterial conduits such as left/right internal mammary arteries, radial arteries, and gastro-epiploic arteries individualized to patient's requirements.

This offers patients faster Post-Operative recovery and extracts less of a toll on their systems.

Thoracic Surgery:

Extensive and challenging thoracic procedures (lung, esophagus, etc.) are undertaken by our Thoracic Surgeons with the best results. These include operations for removal of malignancies from the lung and esophagus. They perform minimally invasive procedures on the lung and esophagus as well as VATS (Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery).

Non-Surgical Closure of Heart Defects

Patients with a hole in their heart, whether an Atrial Septal Defect, a small Ventricular Septal Defect or a Patent Ductus Arteriosus can be closed effectively by Button or Amplatzer’s device or coils.
Beating Heart Surgery:

Coronary Bypass Surgeries are performed using contemporary techniques including the off-pump bypass. Over 98% of the Surgeries are "Off-pump" or "Beating Heart" Surgeries. During off-pump or beating heart surgery, the heart-lung machine is not used. The surgeon uses advanced operating equipment to stabilize (hold) portions of the heart and bypass the blocked artery in a highly controlled operative environment. Meanwhile, the rest of the heart keeps pumping and circulating blood to the body.


Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery

Doctors at Suguna Hospital use Minimally Invasive Techniques to perform multiple graft heart bypass surgery without cutting through a single bone. The new procedure is less painful and leads to faster healing, compared to conventional bypass.Many non-operative procedures are also done to avoid skin incisions ("key-hole"). These include non-surgical closure of atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects and patent ductus arteriosus and balloon valvuloplasty of the pulmonary, aortic and mitral valves.

Cardiac Arrthmia

Cardiac Arrhythmia, or an irregular heartbeat, is a serious but treatable condition. Arrhythmias occur when the electrical impulses, in the heart, which coordinate the heartbeats don't function properly, causing the heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.

Types of Arrhythmias: Paroxysmal Supra-Ventricular Tachycardia [PSVT], Atrial flutter, Atrial Fibrillation, Ventricular Tachycardia, Ventricular Fibrillation.

Causes of Arrhythmias: From Hypertension, Ischemic heart disease, Valvular heart disease,     Cardiomyopathies, Sinus node disease, Tumors, Pericarditis, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease),     Thyroid Disease, Alcohol abuse, Vagal stimulation, Smoking, Modern day life styles etc.

Diagnosis: In order to diagnose an arrhythmia, doctors order specific tests, depending on the type of the arrhythmia that is suspected. In addition to the blood tests, a doctor may order:
   Electrocardiogram / Echocardiogram.
   24 hour electrocardiogram using a device called Holter monitor.
   Electrophysiology Studies (EP Diagnostic Studies) help to locate the origin of the rhythm disorder better and      determine the best treatment.
