A place to breathe.
Cardiologists consult from Monday to Friday (8 am to 2 p.m.) and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.Within the process of consultation, clients may be required to do some laboratory tests, echocardiogram or electrocardiogram. It is from consultation that patients’ treatment is planned, which could involve cardiac surgery, interventional catheterisation or electrophysiology. While some receive medications are return home, others get hospitalised.
Clients requiring greater attention are hospitalised, nursed, treated and monitored. Patients may choose to be hospitalized in general wards (4 beds) or in private wards.
With the long awaited completion of the local team, Dr. Charles Mvondo performs cardiac surgeries regularly. Collaborating with visiting specialists from San Donato Policlinic Milan, Niguarda (Italy), Leuven Catholic University (Belgium), Bambino Gesu (Italy), Maputo (Mozambique), Niguarda Hospital, Milan (Italy), we perform an average of 100 cardiac surgeries annually.
Dr. Tantchou Jacque Cabral and team implant bi-cameral and mono-cameral pace makers, implantable cardioverter defribrillator (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) as needs arise.
Dr. Jean Claude Ambassa and team perform diagnostic and interventional catheterization as an ordinary activity in the Center.
