Cardiology

Heart diseases are still the main cause of death among the adult population in the western world.

Cardiology is the medical specialisation which focuses on the identification, diagnosis and treatment of various heart-related diseases.

Each of the doctors of our team has been trained in general cardiology and they will gladly help you with any questions you may have relating to heart disease.

As is the case with each aspect of medicine, cardiologists can also specialise in their discipline. Find out more about the various specialisations in the "What do we do?" section.

You can visit the consulting doctors after making an appointment by calling
