Cardiothoracic Surgery

A cardiothoracic surgeon is a medical doctor who specializes in surgical procedures of the heart, lungs, esophagus, and other organs in the chest. This includes surgeons who can be called cardiac surgeons, cardiovascular surgeons, general thoracic surgeons, and congenital heart surgeons.

Cardiothoracic surgeons operate on diseases that occur in the organs inside the chest and in the bony structures and tissues that form the chest cavity.

Coronary artery disease is one of the most common diseases treated by cardiothoracic surgeons.

General thoracic surgeons treat primarily lung cancer and diseases of the esophagus and chest wall.

Congenital heart surgeons care for babies and children with holes between the heart chambers or abnormal connections within the heart.

A cardiac or cardiovascular surgeon could treat:

  • Coronary artery disease or blockages of the arteries in the heart
  • Blockages in the heart valve(s)
  • Leaking heart valve(s)
  • Abnormal enlargement or aneurysms of the large arteries in the chest
  • Heart failure
  • Atrial fibrillation

A general thoracic surgeon could treat:

  • Lung Cancer
  • Severe emphysema
  • Esophageal cancer 
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Hiatal hernias
  • Swallowing disorders such as achalasia

A congenital heart surgeon could treat:

  • Atrial septal defects
  • Ventricular septal defects
  • Coarctation of the aorta
  • Hypoplastic left or right heart syndrome
  • Transposition of the great arteries

A general thoracic surgeon could treat:

  • Lung Cancer
  • Severe emphysema
  • Esophageal cancer 
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Hiatal hernias
  • Swallowing disorders such as achalasia

Non-Surgical Closure Of Heart Defects

Patients with a hole in their heart, whether an Atrial Septal Defect, a small Ventricular Septal Defect or a Patent Ductus Arteriosus can be closed effectively by Button or Amplatzer’s device or coils.

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery

Doctors at Rainbow Hospitals use minimally invasive techniques to perform multiple graft heart bypass surgery without cutting through a single bone. The new procedure is less painful and leads to faster healing, compared to conventional bypass. It is the first time in India that multiple grafts have been put at the back side of the heart through minimally invasive coronary surgery. Many non-operative procedures are also done to avoid skin incisions (“key-hole”). These include interventional cardiology treatments like non-surgical closure of atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects and patent ductus arteriosus and balloon valvuloplasty of the pulmonary, aortic and mitral valves

CrossBoss Catheter

A decade ago, most of the patients with 100% blocked arteries were either managed medically or sent for surgery with long recovery times before they got back to their work. Today all these blocks can be cleared with latest advancements in angioplasty using advanced technologies that can be performed successfully in a few hours.

The CrossBoss Catheter is the latest technology introduced in India for the treatment of 100% blocked arteries. This catheter is made of a stainless steel braid and has a rounded tip that can be rotated in any direction. This facilitates the crossing of the 100% block, either through the tough lesions or can travel behind the blocked segment and exit beyond the lesion. At this point the next novel device called StingRay Balloon is used to get back into the actual passage of the blood vessel, using specialised wires.

Highlights of CrossBoss Catheter:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Faster recovery
  • Reduced hospital stay
  • Minimal blood loss

Along with minimal scarring and quicker recovery time, these newly introduced devices will add a new dimension to the treatment of chronic total occlusions (100% blocked arteries). This technology enhances the methods used by Cardiologists to open these blocked arteries and improves the clinical outcomes. For Cardiologists who are specialists in Chronic Total Occlusion (100% blocked arteries), this device is a great tool to have and will improve outcomes significantly. More such devices are expected in the future to treat such complex problems.

Such Interventional cardiology services in India require highly skilled Clinicians with expertise along with excellent critical care staff in a tertiary care hospital set up like Rainbow Super Speciality hospitals

Pediatric Cardiology 

Pediatric Cardiology is a speciality that addresses heart conditions in babies [including unborn babies], children and teenagers. Best Pediatric Cardiology Hospital in India has greatly evolved in the past few years and has helped thousands of children to lead normal lives today.

At Rainbow Super Speciality Hospital, pediatric cardiac care treatment is provided for structural, functional, and rhythm-related problems of the heart and a high degree of success is achieved. With adept Clinicians who are trained at the top centres in the world, Rainbow Super Speciality  Hospitals is considered to be the best pediatric cardiology hospital in India.

With a team comprising of the best paediatric Cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, our centre provides the following treatments:

  • Atrial Septal Defect repair – A defect between the heart’s two upper chambers called the atria.
  • Ventricular Septal Defect repair – A defect between the heart’s two lower chambers called the ventricles.
  • Coarctation of Aorta repair – a birth defect that results in the narrowing of part of the aorta (the major artery leading out of the heart).
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus closure – an abnormal circulation of blood between two of the major arteries of the heart – the aorta and the pulmonary artery.
  • Tetralogy of Fallot treatment – a common cause of “blue babies”.
