Some of the diagnostic procedures commonly performed in cardiac patients include echocardiography, electrocardiography (ECG) to assess heart rhythms, holter recording (a mobile continuous ECG recording system), blood pressure measurement and contrast imaging studies of the heart and associated vessels.

In addition to using the most advanced and current medical treatments for heart disease and associated conditions, we also offer minimally-invasive surgical procedures as well as conventional cardiovascular surgical procedures.
