Institute of
Cardiac Sciences

Lack of facilities to properly manage cardiac emergencies has been a long-standing curse of Palakkad and neighbouring areas. Patients with chest pain had to be taken to hospitals at Thrissur and/or Coimbatore. Many lives were lost in transit. Understanding this as one of the major health concerns of the region, Avitis decided to encompass Cardiology and allied specialities under the umbrella of Avitis Institute of Cardiac Sciences. A cohesive team of Interventional Cardiologists, Cardiothoracic Surgeons, Cardiac Anaesthesiologists and well-trained support staff offer comprehensive services.
