What is Cardiology

Cardiology is a branch of internal medicine that specializes in diagnosing and treating heart disorders. Some examples of heart disorders include coronary artery disease, congenital heart defects, valvular heart disease, electrophysiology disorders and heart failure.

Heart Disease

Heart disease is the number one killer in Malaysia and many countries around the world. Heart problems are usually associated with men because women produce certain hormones in their ovaries which have heart-protective properties. After menopause, however, women are at equal risk of heart problems as men. The recent decade has seen tremendous leaps in cardiology, with more emphasis on interventional cardiology through advanced technologies to prevent or delay heart failure or a heart attack. Our dedicated cardiologists go beyond providing timely intervention and treatment for your heart problems, diligently following up with post-procedural care and lifestyle changes necessary to keep your heartbeat healthy for a longer time.
