Paediatric Interventional Cardiology

In the past few decades, treating a child with a congenital heart defect has drastically changed. Thirty years ago, repairing a congenital heart defect meant only one thing – open-heart surgery. Today, we have moved to interventional procedures. However, it is essential to note that doctors do not treat all heart defects with interventional procedures.
Treating a paediatric congenital heart disease is no easy feat. Our doctors at Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Madurai, provide excellent interventional cardiological care for your child. We use the most technologically advanced and sophisticated procedures that enable our team of experts to perform interventions that can prevent the need for surgery and ensure the patient has minimum scarring.
Your child is in good hands with us as they receive world-class customised treatments for most paediatric heart conditions. We are here to provide seamless care to treat your child’s heart issues.

When the heart’s electrical system fails to function correctly, it causes concerns for the patient and the doctor. But when you are at Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Madurai, our experts will put your issues to rest with our finest doctors. The abnormal heart rhythm is called arrhythmias.
When a patient suffers from arrhythmias, the heart either beats too slowly, too quickly or erratically. It is during this time an electrophysiology examination is conducted. Our highly skilled surgeons use electrodes to guide through blood vessels to the heart and check the function of the heart’s electrical system to identify whether the patient currently has or may develop heart rhythm problems. Some of these irregular heart rhythms can be treated with a special process called Ablation.
Our doctors are here for you and your heart.
