Cardiac Surgery

Cardiac Surgery

With our clinic located adjacent to Mediclinic City Hospital and our cooperative partnership with the centre, we can offer our patients admission and treatment for inpatient care at this highly-regarded facility. The majority of our inpatient procedures can be offered on a day-patient-basis, while others can be expected to have a discharge after no more than 24 hours. 

Our outpatient services bring examinations and treatments previously limited to hospital settings into the relaxed and safe environment of our modern clinic. We also offer additional services for our patients following their visits or discharge from hospital to help them not just with their health, but their emotional well-being.

Wherever possible we encourage outpatient management of a condition to avoid undue stress, costs and burdens.
