We all need a very strong and healthy heart to live a long life. Eating nutritious food, exercising, can help keep your heart strong. But unfortunately, genetics, lifestyle habits, or accidents can lead to sudden heart problems. In India, heart disease is a leading cause of death. Heart disease or problems with the heart can affect anyone, including children. There are many types of heart conditions. The most common heart condition is coronary artery disease, which involves a blockage in the arteries that can lead to a sudden heart attack.
A Cardiologist specializes in using minimally or marginally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease or anomalies of the heart. A good cardiologist must have a thorough understanding of the heart and blood vessels. Seeing a cardiologist can help you diagnose, manage, and treat complex cardiac conditions and diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
What does a Cardiologist Do?
Invasive cardiologists are a subspeciality of cardiology similar to interventional cardiologists. Invasive cardiologists are qualified to diagnose and treat conditions like coronary artery disease, vascular disease, acquired structural heart disease, congestive heart failure, valvular heart disease, and congenital heart disease.

Too Much Arterial Plaque that Can't Be Treated by Medication Alone
If you have atherosclerosis or a buildup of fatty plaques in your blood vessels, you likely are taking medications to reduce your risk of blocked arteries. If arteries become blocked, you're at increased risk of a heart attack. However, medication may not be enough. You may need a minimally invasive treatment to help unclog blocked arteries.
New or Worsening Symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease
If you have coronary artery disease, your arteries become narrower, often due to plaque buildup. This narrowing of the arteries can reduce the flow of blood and oxygen to your heart muscles. Dr. Vijay Bang may advise you on the best treatment based on your symptoms.
Signs or Symptoms of Peripheral Vascular Disease
You can also experience new or worsening symptoms of clogging, narrowing, or hardening of arteries in other parts of your body. Dr. Vijay Bang will diagnose and advise potential treatment. Peripheral vascular disease can also cause problems with your heart's functioning.
Concerns about Heart Valve Disease
The heart's valves help control the blood flow to the chambers of your heart. Problems with your valves' functioning can lead to significant health and heart issues. Dr. Vijay Bang is one of the top heart valve specialists in Mumbai.
There are two major things that happen due to age in the heart
- Heart blockage which requires stent and angioplasty
- Narrowed heart valve which requires catheter valve deployment like TAVI
