Department of Cardiology at Magnum Group of Hospitals

The Department of Cardiology is well known for its cardiac care in Nasik and all of North Maharashtra. The mission of the department is to deliver high-quality and compassionate care to patients and make new discoveries to benefit them while offering the best results in the field.

Right from the inception of Chopda Hospital in 1995 , we have been a pioneer in the field and continue to be one of the best private hospitals in Nasik for high-quality cardiac care. Through the various facilities for the heart, ranging from preventive to diagnostic, paediatric to adult, and research projects to innovation, it ensures the highest quality of cardiac care while maintaining ethical and patient-centric practices.

Chopda Hospital is known for being the 1st hospital in Nasik to introduce 4D echocardiography. It is also the 1st to perform an electrophysiology study (EPS), use an Impella left ventricular assist device, implant the 1st drug-eluting stent, and successfully perform complex coronary angioplasty using specialised techniques like rotablation, intravascular ultrasounds, intravascular lithotripsy, optical coherence tomography, ECMOs, IABPs and IFR / FFR studies and pioneer the 1st Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) – both valve-in-valve and native valve replacement and implantation.

Device closures in adults and paediatrics, ASD, VSD, PDA & coarctation stenting are some more specialities of the Cardiology Department at the hospital.

Project PAMI: Primary Angioplasty in Acute Myocardial Infarction

The Department of Cardiology at Magnum is a leader in angioplasty in North Maharastra . It has pioneered  PAMI , which has been specifically designed for patients who have had major heart attacks and for whom timely medical intervention is critical. The cardiac team is available round-the-clock, which includes a senior and a junior cardiologist, a cardiac anaesthetist, a technician and a nurse, in addition to the emergency services staff.

Heart Failure and Cardiac Rehabilitation

At Magnum Group of Hospitals, we have specialised in heart failure treatment  where patients are evaluated by the best cardiologists in Maharashtra. Integrated care is provided to patients with a focus on optimising medical management and rehabilitation.

Comprehensive advice is provided regarding the treatment options available, such as revascularization by angioplasty or heart surgery, cardiac resynchronisation therapy, an intra-aortic balloon pump and left ventricular assist devices.

Valvular Heart Disease and Cardiomyopathy

Quality care is provided for a wide spectrum of cardiac diseases at the Department of Cardiology. Ailments such as rheumatic, mitral and aortic valve disease, nonrheumatic valvular regurgitation or stenosis, dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, etc., are evaluated, and a long-term treatment plan is provided.

Patients with mitral valve stenosis are treated with balloon mitral valvuloplasty where the valve can be opened non-surgically using a balloon. Valve replacement surgeries are performed by the best cardiothoracic surgeons with excellent results.

Magnum Heart Institute is proud to be one of the 1st few centres in North Maharashtra to have performed transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) for patients suffering from aortic stenosis using only the groyne arteries. This technology has provided a comfortable and convenient way to cure a valve disease without any surgical incisions.

Paediatric Cardiology

With ultramodern echocardiography equipment for evaluating heart disease in children, the Department of Cardiology offers correction of defects such as a hole in the heart and narrowing of valves from birth. Advanced treatment is provided for many other congenital heart defects, including atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus device closure.
