Few words in the medical profession evoke as much awe, anxiety, and fear as "open heart surgery". But while it is a serious procedure, recent advances have made it safer than ever, and many patient worries are founded on misconceptions and misunderstandings.

For example, the mere mention of heart transplantation - the most aggressive open heart operation - would fill many with dread. One of the biggest problems with organ transplantation is rejection of the transplant by the patient''s immune system.

In recent years, however, there has been significant advancement in the medicines that are used to prevent rejection. Approximately 85% of patients receiving a heart transplant can now expect to live for at least a year after the surgery. Of the diverse open heart surgeries, the most common are coronary bypass grafting and valve replacement. At Parkway Group Healthcare, we adopt a holistic approach in our cardiac services. We are not only the pioneer of state-of-the-art technology such as heart laser, carotid stenting and cardiomyoplasty, but we also

offer a comprehensive range of cardiac rehabilitation services that can be tailored to meet your post-surgery needs. To add a personal touch to our services, we have even set up a special interest group - the Cardiomyoplasty Club.
