Problem In India

India has a large population. With a perceived incidence of congenital heart disease in 8 per 1000 live births in children, nearly 180,000 kids are born yearly with this problem. Of these 60,000 to 90,000 are critical and need early treatment. Nearly 10% of the infant mortality seen is due to congenital heart defects. As the number of centers capable of handling this is very few, a huge number of children are added to this pool each year with many of them, who might have lived a near normal life, dying, due to unavailability of treatment to them. This, coupled with economic constraints, leaves only a small fraction that has access for appropriate treatment.

Heart Care In Bangalore

Bangalore has been a leader in many fields of medical care and has some of the finest centers of medical excellence. However, in the field of congenital heart care it is leading when compared to North India or Central India. Congenital heart disease treatment needs a full time and dedicated team of professionals with full time Paediatric Cardiac Surgeons, Paediatric Cardiologists, Anaesthesiologists, Intensive Care Specialists, Perfusionists, Nurses and other paramedical staff. In essence, it needs a dedicated institutional practice which has been seen in this part of the country.
Suguna Hospital is aiming to usher in a new pattern of medical care - that of a full time institute of excellence to treat congenital heart disease.
