Cardiology

Cardiologists are doctors specialized for treating heart and blood vessel diseases. Due to the unhealthy and fast-paced lifestyle of the majority of people, these are among the most common illnesses of the modern era, dominated by hypertension (increased blood pressure).

Our team of cardiologists works not only on treating cardiovascular diseases, but also provides consultation on prevention, and several diagnostic services such as: 

  • Ultrasound of the heart (echocardiography) – uses ultrasound waves to visualize the structure of the heart. This provides significant information on the morphology and function of the muscles of the heart, heart valves, dimensions of the heart cavity, and blood flow speed. 
  • Ergometry – a procedure that tests the impact of physical pressure on the heart, estimates the state of coronary blood vessels, working capability, blood flow movement, and pulse during pressure. The procedure is carried out on an ergo-bike or treadmill. It can determine the decreased circulation of the heart, manifested by pain in the chest and/or changes registered by electrocardiogram (EKG).
  • 24-hour Holter EKG – noninvasive detection of heart activity through the skin of the chest. It uses standardized electrodes over a longer period of time. The patient comes to the clinic to apply the device, and after 24 hours of everyday activity comes back to the clinic to get results.
  • Pharmacological stress echocardiography – one of the best methods for the discovery and monitoring of coronary diseases. It is recommended for people who cannot undergo a classic ergometry test due to bad physical health, severe hypertension, bone-muscle diseases with the elderly, diabetics, and so on. Because of its high sensitivity, this test is especially recommended for people who suffered through myocardial infarction or if they have any form of revascularization of coronary arteries. 

Our team is here for you at all times, especially if you have acute problems that require a swift response.
