The HCA Healthcare UK Cardiac Care hub

Our consultants treat patients from all over the world in three London hospitals: The Harley Street Clinic, London Bridge Hospital and The Wellington Hospital. Patients can also access The Lister Hospital's cardiology department for consultations and investigations and the Chiswick Medical Centre for outpatient clinics. 

Vasilli's heart surgery

Vasilli’s GP had been concerned about his shortness of breath. He was suitable for a new keyhole procedure, a transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), which took just over an hour and - within 24 hours, Vasilli was able to return home.

Looking inside your coronary arteries

Your consultant might recommend you have an angiography, a test that uses contrast dye to highlight any narrowed areas of your arteries.

Angioplasty and stenting

An angioplasty involves threading a catheter into your narrowed artery, before inflating a balloon to widen it to its usual width. A mesh stent, attached to the balloon, acts as a scaffold to hold the artery open, restoring blood flow.

Coronary artery

There are ways to manage coronary artery issues, from taking medicine to having bypass surgery. Our consultants can help you find the best option.

Heart rhythm

You may feel dizzy and tired, or you have no symptoms at all. Our specialists will discuss whether mediciation is the way forward or some kind of surgery.

Heart valve

You have four heart valves making sure your blood flows in one direction, in and out of the heart. We can help you find the correct diagnosis, and treatment, to determine whether you may require medicine or a valve replacement procedure. 

Heart muscle

Your heart is the hardest working muscle in your body. Heart muscle disease, or cardiomyopathy, can cause it to change shape. If heart muscle disease is untreated, there is a small risk of cardiac arrest.

Congenital heart disease

When heart defects develop before birth, it’s called congenital heart disease. Most require lifelong care. We have set up a unit which cares for patients throughout their lives.

Cardiac diagnostics

We create images of a person's heart so our experts have the best information to decide what to do next. We use the latest and most accurate equipment to give you the best results possible.
