Cardiology

Cardiology looks into the treatment, care, and diagnosis of diseases linked to blood vessels and the heart. The specialty deals with the diagnosis and treatment of such conditions as congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, electrophysiology, heart failure and valvular heart disease.

Our adept specialists employ state-of-the-art technology combined with modern treatment to improve the wellbeing of patients diagnosed with cardiac disorders.

The right treatment stems from an apt diagnosis. Our skilled cardiologists will take your medical history into account before conducting tests for the lungs, blood vessels, blood pressure, and weight. Through precise diagnosis, our doctors will suggest bespoke treatment options for your heart disorder.

When should you visit a cardiologist?

  •  If you are experiencing dizziness or breathing difficulties
  • In case you feel discomfort or pain in your chest
  • Constant fatigue and a lack of energy
  • Change of pace in your heart rate or rhythm, including fast heartbeat

Interventional Cardiology is a subspecialty of this medical stream that diagnoses and treats structural heart, coronary artery, and vascular diseases. Our doctors lay emphasis on catheter-based treatments with minimally invasive options. It is better to visit a cardiologist once a year so you can learn about your risk factors for heart disease and find out what measures you can take for better heart health. The diagnosis of heart or vascular disease often begins with your primary care doctor, who then refers you to a cardiologist. It also deals with the technical procedures and medications to treat abnormalities that impair the function of the cardiovascular system.

If your cardiologist decides that you need surgery, he or she refers you to a cardiovascular surgeon, who specializes in operations on the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. You remain under the care of your cardiologist even when you are referred to other specialists. Burjeel hospital is equipped with the state of the art facilities, renowned cardiologists and a Cathlab to take care of your every cardiac concern.
