Centre operates specialised clinics addressing various heart conditions
including coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, pacemakers, valvular heart
disease, heart failure, pulmonary hypertension and congenital heart disease. These
clinics allow us to provide care and monitor patients in targeted settings. Patients with lung and other chest
area organ diseases requiring surgical treatment are also welcome.
Our patients require demanding treatment and examination of cardiac diseases. A visit to the clinic includes seeing a cardiologist or cardiac surgeon and a nurse specialist and an
individual counselling session. The visit may also include ultrasound examination of the heart or clinical stress tests.
You need a doctor's referral to get an appointment at our clinic.
A clinic fee is collected from your visit.
Our experts customise the diagnostic tests on individual basis. We strive to have the diagnostic test (e.g. heart ultrasound or clinical stress test), the assessment of the need for
treatment and the start of the treatment performed during the same visit.
We want to offer our patients and the referring physicians the treatment and diagnosis of coronary diseases based on a one stop principle, when possible. Other diagnostic examinations such as cardiac MRI or cardiac CT can be performed on a separate visit, if necessary.
The facilities of the cardiac outpatient clinic are modern and spacious. The rooms are wheelchair accessible and the patient beds can be transferred to the examination rooms. Our examination equipment represents the latest technology in the field.
