Welcome to the Department of Cardiac Sciences at MGM Healthcare

Cardiac conditions we treat and procedures we do

Cardiac disease or condition can be congenital and thereby inherited and present at birth, or they can arise over the course of one’s life due to lifestyle factors, during pregnancy or during a medical treatment for another condition, example cancer therapy. At MGM Healthcare, our team of cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons are highly skilled and experienced in diagnosing and treating both common and rare heart diseases and conditions. We are equipped with the latest, advanced technologies that support both the diagnosis and treatment of several cardiac conditions. We provide personalized care to manage your heart conditions and help you stay healthy.

Adult Congenital Heart Disease
  • Congenital heart disease is an abnormality in the structure of the heart of blood vessels that is present at birth. Congenital heart defects repaired in infancy still require lifelong care. We provide treatment, education, and counselling for adults with congenital heart defects, including:
  • Atrial and ventricular septal defects: Holes in the walls of the upper (atria) or lower (ventricles) heart chambers.
  • Congenital valve defects: Defects of the heart valves, which control blood flow through the heart.
  • Ebstein’s anomaly: A defect of the heart’s tricuspid valve, which may keep it from closing tightly.
  • Eisenmenger syndrome: Abnormal blood flow through the heart and lungs due to a hole (shunt) that develops between two chambers of the heart.
  • Marfan syndrome: A condition that causes abnormalities in the body’s connective tissue, which supports multiple organs and systems that include the heart and blood vessels. This can cause leaking heart valves, aortic aneurysms, and dissections.


  • Pulmonary stenosis: A narrowing of the pulmonary value, which, allows blood to flow out of the heart into the pulmonary artery and then to the lungs.
  • Single ventricle defects: Also called single ventricle lesions, these are defects or syndromes that result in a heart only having one ventricle large or strong enough to pump blood. Examples include hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), double outlet left ventricle (DOLV), Tricuspid atresia, and heterotaxy defects.
  • Tetralogy of Fallot: A rare condition caused by four congenital heart defects that affect the structure of the heart and cause oxygen-poor blood flow out of the heart.
  • Transposition of the great arteries: A defect where the aorta is connected to the heart’s right ventricle, and the pulmonary artery is connected to the left ventricle – the opposite of the heart’s normal anatomy.


Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is the narrowing of blood vessels that deliver blood to the heart, and this happens when plaque builds up in the arteries. The arteries become damaged or diseased leading to decrease in blood flow which may cause chest pain, shortness of breath and heart attack.

Peripheral Artery Disease

Also known as peripheral vascular disease, this is a common circulatory disease where plaque builds up in arteries leading to reduced blood flow to the head, organs and limbs.

Heart Disease Among Women
  • The Cardiovascular Program for Women provides state-of-the-art cardiac screening, prevention, and therapy services for women with symptoms and complications of heart disease, including:
  • Cardiovascular complications during pregnancy that result in cardiovascular disease
  • Complications from congenital heart disease during pregnancy
  • Coronary microvascular disease (small vessel disease or cardiac syndrome X)
  • Effects of Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and polycystic on the heart
  • Familial hypercholesterolemia, a genetic disorder that causes early onset heart disease
  • Functional amenorrhea, which accelerates heart disease
  • Impact due to gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, and pregnancy-related hypertension
  • Pulmonary hypertension in women
  • Risk of heart disease due to diabetes or menopause
Heart Failure

If you have high blood pressure or blocked arteries in the heart and the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs, you are at a risk of developing heart failure. We have one of the best team of heart transplant doctors in the country who are highly experienced in performing heart transplant and providing complete heart failure care.
