“Good surgeons know how to operate, better surgeons know when to operate, and the best surgeons know when not to operate”.
Over the last few decades, heart and vascular field has seen tremendous growth across the globe. Along with cutting edge technology, there are more confusing changes in the current management guidelines. We at HEALTH ROOTS, bring a holistic approach to provide complete heart and vascular care. Our dedicated multi disciplinary team will help deliver evidence based, tailor made therapy to each and every individual. We believe that a healthy person makes a healthy family, who in turn will be responsible for a healthy society.
Having obtained extensive training in both surgical and medical aspect of cardiovascular diseases, our heart and vascular specialist team provides comprehensive management of adult cardiac patients. Apart from heart care, we also specialize in the management of peripheral artery disease, extra cranial carotid artery disease, venous and lymphatic system.
As a heart specialist, we have expertise in managing acute and chronic presentation of coronary artery disease (blockage of the heart arteries), heart failure, valvular heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, arrhythmias (missed heart beat; irregular heart beats), syncope (passing out episodes). Our team also specializes in congenital and structural heart disease such as ASD (Atrial septal defect), PFO (Patent foramen ovale), PDA (patent ductus arteriosus), coarctation of the aorta, aortic/mitral/pulmonary valvuloplasties.
Vascular system entails entire arterial and venous system diseases apart from coronary artery disease. Even though there is much awareness in the management of heart disease (coronary artery disease), on contrary, peripheral arterial disease management is ignored till the terminal stage such as amputation, sepsis and stroke. Early signs can be as simple as a small foot ulcers or swelling. We at HEALTH ROOTS, would like to provide every patients prone for these risks, a complete and comprehensive care and help avoid life style limiting diseases.
Carotid artery disease is very commonly seen among patients with diabetes, hypertension, smoking and heart disease among others. They can present as a subtle tingling and numbness or as a weakness of our body. With percutaneous intervention, blockage of the neck arteries can be treated to avoid further recurrence of stroke.
Venous thrombosis (DVT-blood clot in the veins) can be acute or chronic and may result in life threatening pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung). Early detection and therapy can avoid long term complications such as pulmonary hypertension or post phlebitic syndrome. Venous claudication is another life style limiting disease resulting from abnormal venous circulation. Most commonly, there are seen among females and professionals who are standing for long hours during their work schedule. Leg swelling and cramping is an early presentation and ulcers with discoloured skin changes are due to long standing chronic situations. With detailed venous study and minimally invasive venous ablation therapy, we can help provide relief to these symptoms and heal venous ulcers.
Along with pulmonary team, we also specialize in the management of pulmonary hypertension (primary and secondary) and offer complete evaluation. Most common symptoms are breathing difficult with routine work and leg swelling.
