Department Of Cardiology

Department Overview:

The cardiology department deals with any condition related to the heart and up to a certain extent to blood vessels.

We provide care to patients with a broad spectrum of heart diseases, whether it is an emergency or a long-standing chronic condition.

The department is headed by a senior, experienced consultant cardiologist with his dynamic and highly motivated professional team that is patient-centric and practice evidence-based medicine.

The cardiology department is equipped with the most advanced diagnostic tools that provide both patients and doctors comfort and confidence in care management.

 

Services:

Almost all kinds of cardiac services are available at the FUH cardiology department.

Outpatient service provides consultation for any heart-related issues and heart check-up.

Inpatient service includes the care of critically ill patients in Cardiac ICU. Non-critical patients are being looked after in our medical ward.

Multidisciplinary team:

At Fakeeh University Hospital, we believe in a multidisciplinary approach for patients with more than one medical condition. Therefore, the cardiology department works closely with other specialties such as endocrinology, neurology, nephrology, and pulmonology for safe and successful outcomes in patients suffering from diabetes, kidney, and lung problems. We also assess patients’ fitness for general anesthesia and major surgery from a heart point of view.

 

Integrated care:

Easy access to health care providers is very crucial. At Fakeeh University Hospital, we do not provide care only on its premises but have home care for chronic illness and mobility issues.

Our teleconsultation service enables people to seek medical advice without visiting the hospital.
