Cath Lab Services

Our cardiac catheterization laboratory, commonly known as a Cath lab was operationalized in July 2022. This is a specialized area in the cardiology unit of the Hospital where doctors perform minimally invasive tests and procedures to diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases. The procedures performed in a cardiac cathlab almost always involve tiny, flexible tubes, called catheters, which can be used to access the heart and blood vessels without surgery.  Special imaging equipment is used to see the arteries and check how well blood is flowing to and from the heart; helping the care team to diagnose and treat blockages and other problems in the arteries.
