Cardiology, Cardio-Thoracic & Vascular Surgery
Welcome to Our Cardiology, Cardio-Thoracic & Vascular Surgery Department
Surgical specialities in providing an all-inclusive programme for managing all heart-related diseases. Along with
providing treatment for conditions of heart, thorax (chest), lungs, oesophagus, thymus, etc we excel at critical
procedures like Bypass surgery, Heart Attack emergency care and many more.
Modern surgery has developed to such an extent that the body of knowledge and technical skills required have led to
surgeons specialising in particular areas, usually an anatomical area of the body or occasionally in a particular
technique or type of patient.
Cardiothoracic surgery is the specialty involved with the treatment of diseases affecting organs within the thorax
(the chest), principally the heart, lungs and oesophagus. Procedures are often lengthy and complex, requiring
support from advanced forms of technology during surgery and intensive therapy for the patient after surgery. The
major subspecialties of Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery are cardiac, thoracic and congenital, each with its
own characteristics. We have the best cardiac surgeons in Nagpur specialised in each of these areas with our
intention to develop the best cardiology hospital in Central India.
- Cardiac – adult cardiac surgery is dominated by coronary heart disease but in an ageing population, the requirement for valve surgery is rising fast.
- Coronary artery surgery is probably the most studied operation of all time.
- Thoracic is concerned with conditions of the lungs, chest wall, oesophagus and diaphragm, and is generally
dominated by treatment of malignant disease.
- Congenital – the most demanding type of cardiothoracic surgery, practised only by a small group of highly
talented and specialised surgeons.
Laparoscopic, Bariatric and Thoracoscopic Surgery
Welcome to Our Laparoscopic, Bariatric and Thoracoscopic Surgery Department
Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing malabsorption of nutrients, or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. Bariatric procedures also often cause hormonal changes. Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery). Laparoscopic surgery procedures are performed on patients suffering from obesity where weight loss is achieved through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch. Additionally, operations performed in the abdomen and pelvic area using small incisions with the aid of a camera. The laparoscope aids diagnosis or therapeutic interventions with a few small cuts in the abdomen. The operation is usually performed laparoscopically by making five to six small incisions
in the abdomen through which a small scope connected to a video camera and surgical tools are inserted. The Laparoscopic surgeon staples the top portion of the stomach so it is separated from the bottom to create a small stomach pouch. This small pouch restricts food intake. A section of the small intestine called the jejunum is then attached to the small stomach pouch permitting food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum. This bypass
reduces the number of calories and nutrients the body absorbs, called malabsorption. At VIVEKA we have the best team of Laparoscopic surgeons in Nagpur supported by a well trained staff and modern equipment to carry out
complicated Laparoscopic surgery in Nagpur and the whole of Central India.
- Produces significant long-term weight loss.
- Restricts the amount of food that can be consumed.
- May lead to conditions that increase energy expenditure.
- Produces favourable changes in gut hormones that reduce appetite and enhance satiety.
- Typical maintenance of >50% excess weight loss.

Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT)
Patients who are critically ill tend to have a high metabolic rate as their bodies are trying to recover from the disease.
They need vasoactive drugs and continuous waste elimination while also simultaneously receiving large volumes of fluid in the form of nutritional and inotropic agents and drug infusions. Therefore, CRRT or continuous renal
replacement therapy is followed so that wastes and water can be gently removed without causing hypotension.
CRRT is a slow form of haemodialysis, where the blood is removed and pumped through a hemofilter.
Peritoneal Dialysis (CPD)
During peritoneal dialysis, a fluid known as dialysate is put into the peritoneal or abdominal cavity with the help of
a catheter. The dialysate is allowed to sit there for several hours while waste products pass from the capillaries into the liquid. The dialysate is then drained out.
Liver Dialysis (MARS Therapy)
The Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System or MARS therapy is based on the concept of albumin dialysis and
quite effectively eliminates the protein-bound and water-soluble toxins. The treatment procedure could facilitate liver regeneration and stabilisation of vital organ functions.
Patients with kidney failure have to go for dialysis or a kidney transplant. Dialysis takes time, and patients have to
visit a dialysis centre frequently for treatments. But with liver transplantation, they don’t have to depend on a
dialysis machine and can have a chance at leading a better quality of life.
Combined Kidney & Liver Transplant and Kidney Biopsy
Combined kidney and liver transplantation are usually done in patients with cirrhosis and other kidney diseases
associated with it. During a kidney biopsy, the doctor will collect samples of the kidney to check them in great detail under special microscopes. It can be done either through percutaneous biopsy or open biopsy. In a percutaneous biopsy, a needle is advanced through the skin over the kidney and guided to the required place by ultrasound.

Neurology, Neurosurgery, Spine SurgeryWelcome to Our Neurology, Neurosurgery & Spine Surgery Department
Lumbar punctureNeurologists may use a lumbar puncture to test the spinal fluid. They may recommend the procedure if they believe patients’ symptoms are caused by a problem in the nervous system that can be detected in the spinal fluid. The procedure involves inserting a needle into the spine after numbing it and taking a sample of spinal fluid.
Tensilon testThis procedure helps neurologists to diagnose myasthenia gravis. In this test, the doctor injects the patient with a medicine called Tensilon. Then they observe how it affects your muscle movements.
Electromyography (EMG)An EMG measures electrical activity between the patient’s brain or spinal cord to a peripheral nerve. This nerve is found in your arms and legs and is responsible for muscle control during times of movement and rest. EMGs can help the neurologist to diagnose spinal cord disease as well as general muscle or nerve dysfunction.
Electroencephalogram (EEG)With electrodes applied to your scalp, an EEG measures electrical activity in the brain. It’s used to help diagnose conditions of the brain, including inflammation, tumours, and injuries, as well as seizures and psychiatric disorders. Unlike an EMG, an EEG doesn’t usually cause any discomfort. Before the test, a technician places electrodes around the scalp that look like small cups. As small changes in the brain are measured through the electrodes, the technician will create changes in the environment to measure brain signals, such as different lighting or noises.

Interventional RadiologyWelcome to Our Interventional Radiology Department
Radiology and Imaging ServicesWelcome to Our Radiology & Imaging Services
- A Computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan allows doctors to see inside your body. It uses a combination of X-rays and a computer to create pictures of your organs, bones, and other tissues. It shows more detail than a regular X-ray. You can get a CT scan on any part of your body. The procedure doesn’t take very long, and it’s painless
- Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body’s internal organs and to examine a baby in pregnant women and the brain and hips in infants. It’s also used to help guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions, and assess damage after a heart attack. Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive, and does not use ionizing radiation. Ultrasound is a sophisticated, computer-integrated diagnostic tool that provides dynamic and crisp visual insights into the human body. Ultrasound can be useful in high-risk pregnancy, Fetal Imaging, Breast Imaging, Heart Disease, Prostate Cancer, Musculoskeletal, etc.
- An X-ray is a common imaging test that’s been used for decades. It can help your doctor view the inside of your body without having to make an incision. This can help them diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions. Different types of X-rays are used for different purposes. X-ray or radiography uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the body’s internal structures. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.
