Cardiac surgery or commonly known as heart surgery is done to correct heart problems like coronary artery bypass grafting, endocarditis or even heart transplantation. According to a survey in 2016, in India heart diseases alone has contributed to 17.8% of total deaths. It also showed that factors like poverty, access to poor medical facilities, ignorance and smoking are the top causes in India for heart disease.
Indian hospitals are the best for cardiac care. It is not only because India has unmatched well trained and knowledgeable surgeons and specialists but also has a combination of sophisticated curative technology and comparatively low costs.
The best cardiology services are provided in the cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai and Kerala. These cities are known for being home to well equipped cardiac hospitals that treat heart diseases at all levels.
Though India has a hub of well trained and experienced doctors, Dr. Ramakanta Panda (Chief Consultant for Cardiovascular Thoracic Surgery and the Vice Chairman and Managing Director of the Asian Heart Institute) practicing at Mumbai and Dr. Ganesh Shivnani (Sr. Consultant Cardiac Surgeon at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Delhi) are considered to be the best in this field.
India has an edge when it comes to low-cost medical services. One can save up to 70-90% of their medical costs here as compared to the USA, UK or other South Asian Nations. An open-heart surgery that costs $90.000 in the USA, costs $7500 in India.
