Kauvery Hospital unveils Heart Institute

The Kauvery Heart Institute, launched on August 1 at Kauvery Hospital, Radial Road, Chennai, is a comprehensive cardiovascular health care destination offering international standards of care to its patients. The institute, a Centre of Excellence of national eminence, is designed to provide holistic care to all its patients, with a team of highly qualified interventional cardiologists and specialists. The institute's global presence is further strengthened through its collaboration with renowned heart centers in the USA, Canada, Japan, and Australia.


Kauvery Heart Institute performs advanced diagnostic and treatment procedures, including Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Rotablation, Intra-vascular Ultrasound (IVUS), and High Risk Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (CHIP PCI). It is one of the first centers in South India to offer OCT imaging technology for early diagnosis of heart attacks and timely intervention. The institute also specializes in minimally invasive cardiac procedures for children and neonates.


Prof. Dr. Ajith Pillai, Chief Cardiologist and Head of the Department, Cardiology, said that the institute is a center of excellence in interventional cardiology, performing some of the most complex procedures in the country like retrograde CTO, transcatheter valve replacement, and advanced complex cardiac arrhythmia operations. The hospital has established the Centre for CHIP PCI and Mechanical Circulatory Support System (Impella, ECMO) for treating advanced coronary artery disease with heart failure/shock.


The institute's unique hub and spoke model facilitates referrals for critically ill patients, further enhancing patient outcomes. The institute's minimally invasive cardiac and thoracic surgery program delivers successful patient outcomes with reduced recovery time and minimal scarring. The launch of Kauvery Heart Institute at Radial Road marks a significant milestone for Kauvery Hospital, as it continues to redefine cardiac care in Chennai and beyond.
