Cardiothoracic and vascular (CTVS)

Cardiothoracic and vascular (CTVS) Department

The  CTVS department at our Hospital provides advanced technology for the diagnosis and treatment of heart, thorax  and vascular conditions. Equipped with modular operation theater, Dana Shivam Heart and Superspeciality Hospital has started bypass, valvular, lungs and vascular surgeries.

Our special area of interests are minimally invasive cardiac surgery and total arterial cardiac revascularization. We started cardiac procedures including the “Off Pump CABG, Valve replacement & repairs; Congenital cardiac surgery including ASD, VSD, TOF, PDA ligations, Peripheral vascular surgeries and Thoracic procedures like Lobectomies, Pneumonectomies’, Thoracoplasties and Decortications.

We also performed excision of cervical rib, thymectomies for patient of Myasthenia Gravis and varicose veins surgeries to the professional satisfaction.

We have a cathlab which is equipped with advanced technology, including digital subtraction imaging, intravascular ultrasound, intracardiac echocardiography, and coronary flow wire, all of which enhance accuracy and accessibility of data for physicians caring for our patients. Three of our labs are specifically dedicated to the treatment and diagnosis of vascular disease. Each lab features advanced image quality and radiation-lowering equipment for patient and staff safety.
The department is handled by Dr. Ram Chandra Sherawat  (Head and Consultant, CTVS).

Our  unit is attached to Cath lab, so that in case patient requires hybrid intervention, there will not be any delay. Certain special infusion by items and circulatory support devices (Intra Aortic Balloon Pump-IABP) are kept ready for any kind of emergencies.

We have critical care unit (CTVS ICU) is managed by doctors who are pioneers in their profession. They are ably supported by well trained nursing professionals. The patients are constantly under close monitoring / vigilance round the clock by highly trained clinicians.

Excellent record maintenance, quick laboratory response & fantastic supportive services are a boon for any excellent critical care unit. Our Hospital is proud to have these kind of services.

To provide a human touch to all these services for interaction with patient attendants, each critical care unit is provided with a counseling room. This area provides an opportunity for patient attendants to directly interact with the clinician and express their feelings.

In our emotions to treat the disease, most often people forget that they are treating a human being. Every human being goes through emotional upset, anxiety, pain, when kept in a place like Critical Care Unit. Of late this problem is receiving lot of attention.
