Thane district is no longer a rural zone now it is a highly developed urban area; especially Kalyan city and surrounding area has developed rapidly in the last 5 years. Now Kalyan residents no need to travel Thane or Mumbai for heart care treatment which took a lot of time to travel and many times heart patients lost their life as they miss out Golden hour which is most important after Heart attack. The rationale behind to start advanced Cathlab is to bridge this gap and bring the latest in diagnosis and treatment in Kalyan city.“
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) became the leading cause of mortality in India. More and more younger adults are getting symptomatic also. Evidently, people are postponing hospital visits until it is unavoidable. Disruptions in travel and transport have further prevented many people from smaller towns and rural areas from reaching hospitals for Heart treatment. Notably, heart disease is responsible for one in four deaths in India today with ischemic heart disease and stroke responsible for more than 80% of this burden. As many as 2.8 million Indians died due to heart disease in 2016. Evidently, heart disease is a bigger pandemic than coronavirus and medical care for heart patients must not be sidelined at any cost. added by cardiologist Dr Pankaj Kasar.
