Cardiothoraxic surgeon

                The department of Cardiothoracic Surgery in Meenakshi Mission Hospital continues to march ahead in providing excellent care to patients for cardiothoracic diseases, with improved efficiency and quality.


              The Operation theatre dedicated to Cardiothoracic surgery is a state-of- the- art facility with a seam-less stainless steel cladding of the walls, Laminar airflow and a separate Air-handling Unit for this theatre only.

  • All these facilities help to reduce the infection rate to zero.

  • There is a ten-bedded ICU with all the latest gadgets available, comparable to  the most developed centres in India.

  • We have 3 Intra-aortic balloon pumps to salvage patients with Myocardial Infarction in Cardiogenic shock.

  • An Endoscopic Tower has been procured for Endoscopic Vein harvesting.

The Future:

             The future looks very encouraging. We, in the Department of Cardiothoracic Sugery, MMHRC, share the dreams of our Founder Chairman to perform Heart Transplantation and key-hole Robotic Cardiac surgery before long, in our Institution.
