The department of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery and cardiology at Dr L H Hiranandani hospital, Powai, Mumbai functions with a core team of best cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists in Mumbai. They are further supported by a team of the best clinical cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists, interventional radiologists, cardiac intensivists and rehabilitation therapists.The centre of excellence (COE) in cardiac sciences at Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital, Powai, Mumbai has been one of the Best Cardiology hospital in Mumbai according to the Times of India Critical Care Survey since many years. The department of CVTS in our hospital is also equipped with dedicated Cardiothoracic ICUs with up to 1:1 nursing ratio round the clock, 24 x 7.

The ICU is equipped with the following facilities

  • Ventilators
  • Infusion pumps
  • Defibrillators
  • Atrial fibrillation surgery - Maze procedure
  • Bedside ECHO and ECG system
  • Bedside USG and Doppler system
  • Continuous oxygen supply, Noninvasive ventilation and High flow nasal cannula.
  • Pressure monitoring systems
  • Intra-aortic balloon pump and ECMOs
  • ABG (Blood Gas machine), and Electrolytes analysis machines
  • Nitric oxide supply
  • Cell saver systems

Our cardiac anesthesia team has highly qualified and trained cardiac anesthesiologists who are adept with the latest techniques in cardiac anesthesia and Analgesia for painless post-operative care. We have state of the art anesthesia equipment, BIS monitoring systems, swan ganz systems, FloTrac hemodynamic and continuous cardiac output monitoring systems and a 3D TEE machine, ABG and TEG monitoring in the operation theatre itself.

We have internationally comparable success rates for various cardiothoracic and cardiovascular surgeries. Our doctors have successfully managed even the most complicated cardiac conditions. Additionally, the support staff has ample experience and handling skills to assist in the recovery of cardiac patients post-surgery.
