Cardiac Surgery in Dubai

Cardiac surgery is a medical speciality that deals with the surgical treatment of heart diseases. It is a complex and delicate procedure that requires highly skilled and experienced surgeons, state-of-the-art equipment, and cutting-edge technology at the German Heart Centre.

Benefits of Cardiac Surgery in Dubai:

Cardiac surgery can provide many benefits to patients suffering from heart disease. Some of the benefits of cardiac surgery include the following:

  • Improved Quality of Life: Cardiac surgery can improve patients’ quality of life suffering from heart diseases. It can relieve symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue, allowing patients to lead more active and fulfilling lives.
  • Prolonged Life Expectancy: Cardiac surgery can prolong the life expectancy of patients with heart diseases, especially those with severe conditions such as heart failure or coronary artery disease.
  • Reduced Risk of Complications: Cardiac surgery can reduce the risk of complications associated with heart diseases, such as heart attacks, strokes, and cardiac arrest.
  • Enhanced Physical Performance: Cardiac surgery can improve the physical performance of patients, enabling them to engage in activities that were previously impossible due to their heart condition.

Common Cardiac Surgeries:

There are several types of cardiac surgery in Dubai. The most common types include:

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG): CABG is a procedure that involves creating a bypass around a blocked or narrowed coronary artery. This is done using a blood vessel from another body part or a synthetic graft. CABG is used to treat patients with severe coronary artery disease, which causes chest pain and raises the risk of a heart attack.

Valve Replacement Surgery: Valve replacement surgery requires the replacement of a damaged or diseased heart valve with a prosthetic valve. This improves blood flow and relieves symptoms like fatigue, shortness of breath, and chest pain. Valve replacement surgery can be performed using minimally invasive techniques, resulting in faster recovery and less pain.

Aortic Aneurysm Repair: An aortic aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of the aorta, the predominant artery that moves blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Aortic aneurysm repair involves replacing the weakened section of the aorta with a synthetic graft. This is done to prevent the aneurysm from rupturing, which can cause life-threatening bleeding.

Heart Transplantation: Heart transplantation is a procedure that involves replacing a diseased or damaged heart with a healthy heart from a donor. This is done to treat patients with end-stage heart failure, in which the heart can no longer pump blood effectively. Heart transplantation is a complex procedure that requires careful matching of donor and recipient and close monitoring after the surgery.

Who needs Cardiac Surgery?

Cardiac surgery is usually recommended for patients with heart diseases that cannot be treated with medication or other non-surgical treatments. It is also recommended for patients with severe heart diseases affecting their daily activities and quality of life. A team usually decides to undergo cardiac surgery of doctors and specialists who evaluate the patient’s condition and determine the best treatment option.

Recovery & life after cardiac surgery

Healing time is determined by the type of surgery and other factors, such as your overall health. The average recovery time from open-heart surgery is six to twelve weeks. However, some people require additional time.

Follow the doctor’s directions regarding when you can drive, return to work, lift heavy things, or engage in other activities. Your medical staff will also advise you on how to care for your incision. It is critical to take things slowly and allow your body to recover.

You may experience the following symptoms while you recover:

  • A clicking sensation in your chest. 
  • Bruising or slight swelling at the site of your incision.
  • Constipated.
  • Difficulties are falling or staying asleep.
  • Reduced appetite. During a few weeks, you may feel queasy around meals. 
  • Shoulder and upper back pain or tightness.
  • Gloomy, unhappy, or irritable.

These are common reactions following surgery. But that doesn’t mean you have to go through it alone. Inform your family or friends of your feelings. 

Whether you need cardiac surgery in Dubai or elsewhere, receiving the best possible care is essential to ensure a successful outcome.
