Cardiology is the branch of medicine which studies and deals with disorders of the heart and parts of the circulatory system. As the main organ that keeps blood pumping throughout our body, the heart is the engine that keeps our body running. Cardiac conditions are mostly caused by personal lifestyle and genetic disorders. Cardiologists are physicians that are specialized in cardiac surgery and treatment.
At Sri Kota Specialist Medical Centre, we have been providing quality Cardiology services to the community ever since our inception. We are proud to announce the installation of a new Cardiac Catheterisation Lab, a Siemens Artis Q. This state-of-the-art machine will allow rapid and accurate diagnosis and coronary interventional procedures.
