Centres of Excellence




              The cardiology department at the A.G.Padmavati’s Hospital provides comprehensive patient-centered services of international standards. It consist of outpatient department, Cardiac emergency services, Coronary Care Unit, Prof. N. Sivarajan Cardiac Catherization Lab and Anreas Gruntzig Cardiac Catherization lab. All these interconnected areas work to best possible care for the patient with varying needs.

               Our state-of-the-art cardiac catherization lab offers  diagnostic catherization of the heart chambers, valves, coronary arteries, aorta and pulmonary vessels. interventional procedures performed include Percutaneous transcatheter Angioplasty (PTCA) of varying complexity, peripheral angioplasties and valvuloplasty. A 24 hours acute myocardial infarction intervention (primary PCI) program supported by onsite interventional cardiologist, cath lab nurse and technologist is available.


              The department consist of a team of highly skilled and experienced competent cardiologists Dr. G. Elangovan MD, DM, (cardio) Dr. Sumathi Elangovan MD, DM, (cardio) and Dr.Anandaraja MD,DM, FECP, and more than 10 visiting cardiologists. They are ably supported by a large multi-disciplinary team comprising of cardiac intensivists, nurses (General and Specialist), radiographers and administrative staff. Consultants in other specialities work in close liaison with the cardiology team.             Dr. G. Elangovan MD, DM, has underwent special training at North Memorial Medical Centre at   Minneapolis Minnessota, USA in interventional cardiology.  

  •               The department is supported by a dedicated multidisciplinary team of  experts- Prof. N. Nachiappan Senior Cardiothoracic Surgeon,  Dr. C. S. Adhiganesh,          Dr. R. Kannan Cardiac Anesthesiologists cum intensivists, Dr.Thiroumourougane Serane. V Consultant Neonatologist & Pediatrician and medical professionals from other related areas.
