Delhi’s BLK-Max Hospital Extends Medical Expertise in Moradabad with Launch of Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery OPD in the Region
Moradabad : Delhi’s renowned 650-bed BLK-Max Super Speciality Hospital today launched its Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery (CTVS) OPD Services in Moradabad in partnership with the city-based Cosmos Hospital. The OPD launch is yet another patient-centric step taken by the healthcare provider to empower patients with accessibility to quality healthcare services. The facility will provide expert advice and treatment in CTVS for conditions pertaining to the heart. CTVS is useful in treating a number of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) from childhood to adulthood.
The OPD services were launched by Dr Ramji Mehrotra, Principal Director & Chief – CTVS, BLK-Max Heart Centre, BLK-Max Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi.
At the launch, Dr Ramji Mehrotra said, “People often come to us with pain, pressure or heaviness in the chest (that indicates angina), pain in the jaw, the left shoulder, arms, elbows, or back, shortness of breath (dyspnoea), cold sweat, nausea and fatigue, light-headedness or fainting. These symptoms may vary from person to person, some people might experience more than one symptom together. Through proper diagnosis followed by Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery of the heart, lungs, chest, esophagus and vascular system, including blood vessels, arteries, veins and lymphatic circulation, we treat a number of diseases such as congenital heart disease, Aneurysm, Arrhythmias, Heart Failure, Coronary artery disease, Valvular heart disease and Venous disorders. Through the launch of this OPD service, the people from Moradabad will get access the best-in-class services and we will raise awareness about heart and lung-related disorders. There have been tremendous advancements in such surgeries including endovascular surgery, a less invasive alternative to open surgery which offers many benefits such as minimal scarring, less blood loss, quicker recovery time, and a shorter hospital stay.”
According to the World Health Organisation, around 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2016 representing 31% of all global deaths. In the same year, India reported 63% of the total deaths due to NCDs, of which 27% were attributed to CVDs. CVDs also accounted for 45% of deaths in the 40–69-year age group. With the launch of the OPD services, patients across age groups, socio-economic backgrounds, etc. can avail the best consultation and treatment in Moradabad and nearby regions, without the inconvenience of travelling to another city.
Management of Cosmos Hospital, said, “We are really happy to have collaborated with one of the finest Heart Centres in the country. We endeavor to equip the common man with relevant information pertaining to heart related issues and our OPDs will offer consultation and encourage people to lead a healthy lifestyle. India is seeing an alarming rise in number of heart related cases and the global burden of the disease is growing at a disturbing rate. Patients beyond the big metros find it difficult to avail world-class care & services and incur huge costs in long distance travel. This OPD is going to be a valuable addition to the healthcare infrastructure of Moradabad by providing world-class treatment solutions to patients in the city right at their doorsteps. Our services will include all consultations and investigations and provide end to end services for the treatment.”
