hridaya care A non-surgical medical procedure is now available for heart patients with coronary artery disease. After long professional service abroad and in India, Dr. Gopalakrishnan A. Pillai M.D., Ph.D., a super speciality consultant in Cardiac diseases and cardiac surgery has started a Clinic to provide the innovative painless EECP Therapy with the latest medical equipment imported from U.S.A. This is done keeping in tandem with his vision that all heart patients need to be clearly informed of their conditions and given maximum awareness in all available options of treatment. This treatment is extremely beneficial to all heart patients with coronary artery disease or other ailments requiring re-vascularization of other organs like the brain (in case of stroke).

EECP Therapy is also a good for early prevention of coronary artery disease for anyone whose family has a history of heart ailments. Being a completely non-invasive procedure which does not require hospitalization, the patient can continue his daily activities it will appeal to people who give attention to holistic health care and want to have a healthy long life. In fact the heart is not the only organ which benefits from this treatment. All organs including the brain, liver, kidneys & pancreas get an increased blood flow and oxygenation due to this treatment. This improves their function, increases their healthy longevity, improves stamina and improves the overall health of the patient.

Hridaya Care Heart Institute is located at a walk-able distance from the Aluva private bus stand, Aluva Railway station, & National Highway (NH47). The proximity to the International Airport, which is just 6 kms away from the clinic and the cost difference, has already started attracting foreign medical tourists to this modern Clinic.

The inauguration of the institute is on 29th February by Dr. G. Madhavan Nair, former chairman of the ISRO. Hridaya Care’s specialized EECP services will be inaugurated by Resul Pookutty (Oscar winner for best sound mixing for the 2008 blockbuster Slumdog Millionaire) who is also associated with several foundations to help heart patients.

Dr. Gopalakrishnan A. Pillai has announced that for the benefit of poor patients, his consultation between 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm will be free of cost. This will be continued till 29th September 2012 which is the world heart day.  Any patients who do not have the economic means to get a cardiac consultation and want to avail this facility need to come in person to Hridaya Care Heart institute and book an appointment date. Appointments will be scheduled based on availability.
