Cardiothoracic Surgery

Department of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery at Apollo is among the largest and the most prestigious in the region. The department staff works with the newest surgical techniques, equipment and devices. Each year, our skilled surgeons care for hundreds of patients, young and old, who require virtually every type of heart surgeries.

 

CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft)

CABG is the shortened more popular name for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting. Coronary artery bypass grafting is the surgical procedure in which the grafts are connected up to the blocked arteries. This surgery aims to supply the starved heart muscle with more blood by passing the blockages.

The surgeon studies the coronary arteries and tailors his plan of revascularization to suit the needs of the individual patient. Once the surgeon joins up the grafts, blood flows through them into the blocked arteries beyond the blocks thus bypassing them. The blocks are not removed but are bypassed, hence the name bypass surgery!

 

Heart Valve Surgery

Specialized surgery which is performed for the treatment of abnormalities like Mitral Regurgitation (MR) (a valvular heart disease which results in the abnormal leaking of blood through the mitral valve, from the left ventricle into the left atrium of the heart), or Aortic Stenosis (a condition where the aortic valve becomes narrower than normal, impeding the flow of blood) are routinely performed.

 

Paediatric Cardiac Surgery

Paediatric Cardiac Surgery deals with heart conditions in babies (including unborn babies), children and adolescents. Structural, functional, and rhythm-related problems of the heart are dealt with a high degree of success.
