Cardiology, a specialised field in medicine, focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects and other heart-related diseases. Cardiologists, often referred to as heart specialists, are physicians who specialise in the field of cardiology.
Dedicated Cardiological Caregiving Team
The dedicated team of the best cardiologists in Johor along with compassionate and highly trained physicians as well as nurses are at Gleneagles Hospital Medini Johor to help provide the most comprehensive rehabilitative care for all our patients, ensuring nothing but a successful outcome to every unique cardiological surgery.
Assessment and Diagnostic Tools at Gleneagles Hospital Medini Johor's Cardiac Centre
Our patients have access to a wide variety of cardiovascular assessment and diagnostic tools at our Cardiac Centre in Johor.
With tools such as the Electrocardiogram (EKG) and various other stress tests, the cardiologists at Gleneagles Hospital Medini Johor can determine a wide range of heart and blood vessel disorders.
Heart size and function are determined by Echocardiograms, while ultrasounds help evaluate the blood flow to parts of the body. If narrowing of the arteries is a concern, cardiac catheterisation helps the heart specialists zero in and determine the problem areas.
We also provide a variety of therapeutic procedures to aid the restoration of blood flow in the arteries via methods such as angioplasty (blood vessel widening), atherectomy (arterial plaque removal), and arterial stent and balloon inflation placements.
We also specialise in pacemaker and defibrillator implantation to help improve heart function as well as normalise heart rhythm depending on the patient's individual needs.
A full range of vascular treatments for various peripheral conditions and diseases such as blocked arteries, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, aneurysms, and strokes can be proposed by our panel of vascular surgeons.
Cardiological Services at Gleneagles Hospital Medini Johor
- Cardiac Electrophysiology: Cardiac Electrophysiology is an advanced treatment for addressing heart rhythm issues. It effectively manages irregular heartbeats and other rhythm disorders by analysing and repairing the heart's electrical system. At Gleneagles Hospital Medini Johor, we specialise in electrophysiology to enhance heart health, treat irregular heartbeats, cardiac syncope (fainting), and other rhythm disorders.
- Echocardiography: Echocardiography is a heart test that utilises sound waves to generate images of the heart and blood flow. The use of echocardiography provides detailed insights into your heart's health, aiding in the effective diagnosis and management of heart conditions.
- Interventional Cardiology: Interventional Cardiology encompasses minimally invasive treatments for structural, coronary, and vascular issues, utilising small catheters, stents, and specialised devices to improve heart health.
- Nuclear Cardiology: Nuclear Cardiology employs small radioactive tracers to capture images of the heart's blood flow and function, assisting in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac conditions, both at rest and during exercise.
Cardiologists work together with a team of dedicated cardiothoracic surgeons who are trained to perform a wide range of procedures on the lungs, chest wall, diaphragm, and heart. This specialty is exclusively for the treatment of diseases, trauma, and congenital or acquired heart and vessel deformities.
Certain diseases benefit greatly from such cardiothoracic procedures and include but are not limited to arterial blockage, valvular disorder, aneurysms, and congenital heart defects such as the prolapse of mitral valves.
The team of cardiologists at Gleneagles Hospital Medini Johor is specialised and trained to the highest calibre and consists of cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, intensivists, and anaesthetists to provide every patient the top-quality care Gleneagles Hospitals strives to offer.
