Cardiovascular diseases kill a staggering 18.6 million people a year across the world. What is more frightening is the increase in this number with each passing year. Multiple factors contribute to this alarming trend; lifestyle diseases and unhealthy habits top the list.
 
The Covid-19 pandemic has also shown the susceptibility of people with heart diseases. All this calls for healthy living to keep your heart healthy and strong.
 
As the saying goes, 'Prevention is always better than cure'. Small actions like quitting smoking, having a wholesome diet, and regular exercise can keep heart diseases at bay to a large extent. Regular checkups and early diagnosis also play a crucial role.
 
However, being affected by a cardiovascular disease doesn't mean it is the end of the world for you. In this era of advancing healthcare, most heart ailments are treatable. All you need in your journey to recovery is a reliable and trusted cardio care partner. And VPS Healthcare's Burjeel Medical City can be your true guide.
 
Burjeel Medical City boasts of unparalleled excellence in interventional cardiology and patient safety. Enabled by a formidable team of doctors and cutting-edge technology, the hospital constantly works towards bettering clinical outcomes.
 
The cardiac sciences team at Burjeel Medical City, certified by western medical boards, specialize in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, interventional cardiology, pediatric cardiology, pediatric cardiac surgery, and cardiac electrophysiology. A team specializing in heart and lung transplant will soon be an integral part of the program.
 
The advanced infrastructure and latest technical facilities at Burjeel Medical City reflect the hospital’s commitment to delivering high-quality care. It has a state-of-the-art operating room and floor-mounted image-guided system for cardiovascular and electrophysiology procedures. The hospital takes pride in adopting the latest technology and is a pioneer in this area. It is the first to have the next-generation Philips Azurion 7 biplane cardio-vascular system in the UAE. It is also the first facility in the UAE to have Philips Ingenia Elition 3.0T MRI and the Philips Ingenia Ambition MR-OR intraoperative MRI. The hospital has a Cardiac CT scan — level A and B — equipped with advanced software for 3D imaging of the heart.
 
The VPS’ flagship project, Burjeel Medical City, is one of the largest such facilities in the private sector. In a short time since it opened its door to the public earlier this year, the cardiac sciences department at the hospital has given a new lease of life to hundreds of patients.
