  • The facility includes Colour doppler echocardiology, multi plane trans-esophageal echocardiography, and dobutamine stress echocardiography.
  • We are also the first to have myocardial contrast echocardiography in India . Added to that, acoustic quantification and colour kinesis help to overcome many limitations and add to the accuracy of diagnosis. Bedside intra operative echo colour Doppler and TEE are also available.
  • We also possess a computerized cardiac stress test machine from Space Labs with advanced touch screen technology which is used to perform accurate and reproducible exercises testing for patients with coronary artery disease.
  • In addition to this, the department is also equipped with the sophisticated Zymed Holter monitoring system which is used for diagnosis of all kinds of cardiac arrhythmias.

Intensive Coronary Care Unit (I.C.C.U.)

  • Did you know that 30% of patients die following a Heart Attack? This can be avoided by having life support systems and other facilities to prevent any emergency following a heart attack.
  • BHIRC now has a 12-bedded Coronary Care Unit equipped with the latest monitoring system networked on the Central Monitoring System and manned round the clock by medical officers and fully trained and dedicated nursing staff.
  • The I.C.C.U. at BHIRC has established a reputation for excellence in cardiac care in the region.

  • A high standard of care is maintained with the help of dedicated cardiac surgeons, cardiac anaesthetists, perfusionists and of course high quality nursing care.
  • This is reflected in excellent surgical results obtained at this centre. The department also has a top of the line cardiac surgery theatre equipped with the latest monitoring system, ventilators, defibrillators, heart lung machine, cold lighting system and electronically controlled operation table.

Pediatric Cardiac Care

  • A total of 150,000 children are born every year with congenital heart disease and yet less than 2000 manage to be treated.
  • The Surgical department of Baroda Heart Institute & Research Centre aims to close down the gap.
  • The pediatric cardiac care department at BHIRC is one of the few centers in the country offering advanced diagnostic and treatment facilities for children with heart diseases.
  • The department is fully geared to perform diagnostic procedures like pediatric echo-colour Doppler studies, TEE, cardiac catheterizations and pediatric interventions like balloon valvuloplasty, balloon angioplasty, closing defects in the heart using a variety of devices and life saving procedures like atrial septostomies.
  • All this is backed by the specialized pediatric cardiac care surgical team who are masters in various congenital heart diseases.

Cardiac Electrophysiology

Cardiac electrophysiology is a procedure which studies the electrical properties of the heart and evaluates the cause of irregular cardiac rhythm. Curative procedures like radiofrequency ablation and implantation of AICD are also available at this premier institute.

Interventional Radiology

The department has high resolution ultrasonography and X-Ray machines, and provides top of the line interventional radiology services starting from duplex vascular Doppler studies, digital substraction angiography to various therapeutic vascular interventions like angioplasty, stenting and implantation of IVC filters.
