home \ LOURDES HEART INSTITUTE & NEURO CENTER

Lourdes Heart Institute and Neuro Centre were established to cater to tertiary level care for the entire spectrum of cardiovascular and neurological diseases. The institute was set up to meet the long-felt need to provide state-of-the-art cardiac and neurological interventional facilities at a price to suit every facet of the society especially to provide interventional neurological facilities for the precise and targeted treatment of strokes, including selective Thrombolysis and primary angioplasty for stroke which was hitherto unavailable in this part of India.
 
The institute was set up in a new block in Lourdes Hospital, Cochin, Kerala, India and was inaugurated on March 16, 2007 by Mr. A. K. Antony, the Defence Minister of India. Lourdes Heart Institute has the first biplane digital flat panel catheterisation laboratory in South Asia, which is especially suited for the rigorous demands of Neurological and Cardiological intervention work, including Carotid Stenting, Intra-Cerebral Vessel Stenting, Primary Angioplasty, Valvotomy, Electrophysiologic Procedures and Pediatric Cardiology.
