KEM Hospital holds a unique radiology workshop

  • This clinic has been started with the primary aim to register patients for heart transplants.
  • A waiting list will be created for patients in need of a heart transplant.
  • The clinic will help diagnose patients who are facing heart failure.

Heart transplants are a costly affair at private hospitals. They cost around 25-30 lakh rupees. People cannot afford it, KEM hospital had decided to start a heart transplant facility. They had written to the state government regarding it and issued a letter. They have not yet received permission as they do not have a modular operation theatre yet.

But, in the meantime, they are recording the number of heart patients and the ones who are in need of a heart transplant. This clinic has started for them.

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr Balaji Ironi, an assistant professor at KEM Hospital’s cardiac department, said, “The number of heart patients is on the rise. We see 10-12 patients at the OPD on a daily basis. Untimely diagnosis ultimately leads to heart failure, we get to know about this when they come for treatment. And by then, a heart transplant is the only option for them.”

He added, “In order to gauge the number of patients who are facing heart failure, we are soon going to start a heart failure clinic. In this clinic, patients who need a heart transplant will be registered. Patients will also be diagnosed. Patients will be informed about what is heart failure, what are the types of heart disease.”

In conclusion, Dr Ironi said, “Doctors from the cardiology and cardiac surgery department will collectively work together in this clinic.”
