Assistance with finding a doctor
Heart failure, sometimes known as congestive heart failure, occurs when your heart muscle doesn't pump blood as well as it should. Certain conditions, such as narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) or high blood pressure, gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently.
Not all conditions that lead to heart failure can be reversed, but treatments can improve the signs and symptoms of heart failure and help you live longer. Lifestyle changes — such as exercising, reducing salt in your diet, managing stress and losing weight — can improve your quality of life.
One way to prevent heart failure is to control conditions that cause heart failure, such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity.
You will, of course, have to travel for actual treatment, but we can streamline that by giving you advice and information regardless of your current physical location.
Just give us your medical details, outlining your problem and attaching reports (x-rays, CT/MRI scan, USG, pathological reports etc) or a summary of observations based on them.
Our International Patient Services team will help you with scheduling appointments with your doctors. BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
After reviewing your medical reports our team of doctors will diagnose your ailment and recommend a course of treatment. Based on this, we will then estimate the cost of treatment. The cost estimation service is free for you.
