Cardiology focuses on the health and functioning of the cardiovascular system. The system refers to the heart and blood vessels of the body and both Cardiologists and Cardiovascular surgeons administer treatment for any damage sustained by the system.
Cardiologists diagnose and treat conditions like Cardiomyopathy, congenital heart disease, coronary artery diseases. Patients under their care are referred to cardiovascular surgeons if there is a requirement for procedures like pacemaker attachment, bypass surgery or valve surgery.
Both roles have become essential due to the growing rate of cardiovascular conditions among the population. With the continued technological advancement in the field of medicine, Cardiology has also seen an improvement in treatment capabilities and providing cutting-edge solutions to resolve or decrease severity of heart conditions.
