Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases. Top cardiovascular care programs treat patients from diagnosis to treatment, and recovery by providing a continuum of progressive care through a team of cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons, and radiologists, assisted by a staff of committed nurses, technicians, and physician assistants.Lack of insurance, little time to wait for a needed treatment, high deductibles, and the general skyrocketing costs of health care in the US and elsewhere result in more people scrambling to find doctors and facilities they can afford to perform not only coronary bypass surgery but also other cardiology and vascular procedures. Obviously, the cost of cardiac procedures or surgery depends on the type of procedure or surgery that is performed, but within the US, cardiac procedures tend to be among some of the most costly.
Where are the Cardiology/Cardiovascular Facilities?
The global medical marketplace now offers opportunities for patients to travel to other countries to find dramatic cost-savings along with the quality of care and a level of superior service and patient experience. Facilities in India, Thailand, and such Middle East countries as Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Brunei often require long flights for patients to reach them. Some medical travelers, concerned about possible risks regarding traveling great distances such as developing a blood clot( thromboembolism), are considering alternatives closer to their home. Medical tourism has opened up alternative options to find highly skilled medical Cardio/Cardiovascular professional operating in high-tech facilities not only across the ocean but also just across the border.
