The Heart Centres in Bangkok, Thailand employ comprehensive, holistic approaches to heart health ranging from prevention and early detection to diagnosis, treatment, heart surgery and rehabilitation. 
 

The Heart Centres specialists have studied in such countries as the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and Belgium. They include medicine-based doctors, endovascular specialists, heart surgeons, cardiac rehabilitation professionals, as well as subspecialists such as paediatric cardiologists. With Thailandís international patient base, these doctors have seen complicated heart cases from nearly every country in the world.

Our doctors are paired with expertly trained nurses, plus pharmacists and dieticians. And with 10 years of American-based JCI accreditation, our teams's processes are verified to be at or above international standards for diagnosing and treating cardiac conditions.

With thousands of cardiac cases a month, of which approximately about one third are non-invasive procedures such as echocardiograms. On top of this, hundreds of endovascular procedures are done monthly.

Cardiac Diagnostic Investigations
Over 15 different technologies are used to diagnose heart conditions, not including blood tests. Some examples are:

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Echocardiography & exercise echocardiography
  • Exercise stress testing
    • Dobutamine stress echocardiogram (for patients unable to exercise on a treadmill)
    • Pharmacological stress testing with nuclear imaging
    • Pharmacological stress testing with MRI imaging
  • 24-hour Holter (EKG) monitoring including event monitoring    
    • Nuclear cardiology
    • Tilt table testing
    • TEE - Transesophageal echocardiography (multi-plane)
    • Electrophysiology testing (arrhythmia)
  • Angiography    
    • Diagnostic cardiac catheterization (coronary angiogram)
    • Carotid angiography
    • Peripheral angiography

Cardiac Treatment & Heart Surgery
All our hospitals are dedicated to patient safety and care.
