The Cardiology department in CMC Ludhiana was started in the year 1984 with a four bedded ICCU. Over the last 34 years, the department has made tremendous progress and prides itself with many firsts to its credit. It was the first department in Punjab to have a Cath Lab and start invasive cardiac procedures. First cardiac catheterization, coronary angiography, coronary stenting, pacemaker implantation, ICD implantation, electrophysiological study and radiofrequency ablation procedure was performed at our cardiac catheterization lab.
The department presently performs all invasive, non-invasive and interventional procedures. The inpatient services along with invasive, interventional, pacing and electrophysiology work are taken care of sincere and efficient super specialists, technical and nursing staff. Besides patient service, we are also actively engaged in furthering medical education. Our department was the first to start the DM Cardiology training program in the state of Punjab in 2001. Till date, 14 postgraduates have finished their DM training at the department. The department is actively involved in research with many postgraduate thesis and multinational research projects going on.
The department presently admits over 2000 patients a year, along with performing over 10000 non-invasive and over a 1000 invasive procedures in a year.
With the Almighty’s guidance and grace, we are confident of continuing our work to provide affordable and standardized care to the people of this region.
