Department of Cardiology &
Cardiothoracic Surgery

The Indiana Hospital & Heart Institute, Mangaluru is a multi-specialty, state-of-the-art, one-stop centre for all medical disorders. The Department of Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery at Indiana remains committed to providing the highest quality cardiology services with skill and compassion using advanced medical technologies. Its capability in handling all kinds of cardiac-related emergencies is well known throughout south India. The department has a large reservoir of top interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons available 24×7. Committed to excellence and superior service, Indiana has been a regional leader in cardiology that ensures services in Interventional Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, Cardiac Emergencies, Paediatric Cardiology, Preventive Cardiology and Electro-physiology of the heart.

Recently, it became the first hospital in Karnataka to perform Mitral valve replacement percutaneously (valve in, valve intervention). Also, coastal Karnataka witnessed the first TAVI procedure (aortic valve replacement without surgery) at the Indiana Hospital. Dr. Yusuf Kumble and his team have also performed various complicated hybrid procedures to replace the aortic arch for aortic dissection and aneurysm (a combined procedure by the intervention cardiologist and the cardiac surgeon for aortic arch disease), adding to Indiana’s fame.

The department is headed by Dr. Yusuf A. Kumble, who is a pioneer in complex coronary interventions, including image-guided (OCT-guided) LMCA stenting, bifurcation and multi-vessel PCI. His team includes senior cardiologists Dr. Abdul Mansoor, Paediatric Cardiac Surgeon Dr. Siddarth V.T., Senior Cardiac Surgeon Dr. Prashanth Vaijyanath (visiting surgeon) and Cardiac Anaesthetist Dr. Madhan among others.

Indiana – at the heart of health

The hospital’s latest catheterisation laboratory is equipped with a sophisticated Cath lab, diagnostic imaging equipment like OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography),  rotablator, FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve), electro-physiology lab and neuro-interventional equipment.
The tech edge to healthcare
Indiana is the first hospital in south Karnataka to possess the advanced Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system for cardiac imaging that is fully integrated with the hospital’s Cath lab. A perfect guide to coronary angioplasty with high resolution, OCT, the most advanced coronary imaging modality, can be trusted to give accurate results.

The hospital has a comprehensive cardiac care program, which is an amalgamation of the services of eminent cardiologists, the finest technology and evidence-based practices in Non-invasive Cardiology, Interventional Cardiology, Cardiac Electro Physiology and CTVS procedures.

At the hospital, we take complete care of your heart – from diagnosis, prevention, treatment, surgical care to cardiac rehabilitation and wellness services. Our ultra-modern cardiac-related medical facilities, handled by renowned cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and anaesthetists, offer heart care services across the spectrum of congenital heart care, electrophysiology, non-coronary and peripheral vascular diseases and device therapies.

Our heart failure clinic offers various services for chronic heart-failure patients such as monthly heart failure clinic, heart failure device therapies such as CRT-P (to prevent progression of heart failure), CRT-D (to reduce mortality during heart failure) and AICD implantation (to prevent sudden cardiac death), and various other pacemakers.

Our electro-physiology lab under Dr. Manish Rai performs various electro-physiology study of the heart, radio-frequency ablation (RFA) and 3D mapping. We also provide emergency neuro-interventional procedures such as DSA, mechanical thrombectomy, mechanical aspiration, neuro-stent placement and aneurysm coiling for stroke patients. Our neuro-interventional team includes Dr. Z. K. Misri, Dr. Safwan and Dr. Sourab Rai.
