Do you or does anyone you know need to consult a cardiologist? Basically, a cardiologist is a doctor who specialises in studying, treating, and preventing diseases that affect the heart, arteries, and veins. He/She is sometimes called a “heart specialist” or simply, a “heart doctor.”
In this article, we have gathered a list of the best cardiologists in Dubai. Most of them are part of multi-specialty hospitals, which are medical facilities that offer a wide range of healthcare services. We have also included a discussion about different types of cardiology doctors.
When to See a Cardiologist in Dubai?
If you are seeking a cardiologist, then most likely you have experienced symptoms like shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, or chest pain. Also, you may have noticed swelling in your legs, ankles, or feet. All of these are factors that could be related to heart disease.
In addition, if you have a medical history of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes, take note that these are major risk factors for heart disease. In any case, seeing a cardiologist regularly is definitely a must!
Types of Cardiology Doctors
Before we proceed to the list of cardiologists in Dubai, let us first talk about the different types of cardiology doctors. As mentioned earlier, a cardiologist is a doctor who specialises in studying and treating heart diseases. But what is the meaning of “interventional cardiologist,” “cardiothoracic surgeon,” “non-invasive cardiologist,” and other terms?
Just like other medical sciences, the field of cardiology is vast, and it branches out into different specialisations. Even after studying cardiology, a doctor may decided to study further and expand his knowledge and skills to become a/an:
1. Interventional Cardiologist
An interventional cardiologist is a cardiologist who has taken up one to two years of additional education regarding the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases. He/She usually undergoes training in specific procedures, like angioplasty and stenting.
2. Cardiothoracic Surgeon
A cardiothoracic surgeon is a doctor who specialises in surgical procedures pertaining to the heart, esophagus, lungs, and other chest organs.
3. Vascular Surgeon
A vascular surgeon is a doctor who specialises in diagnosing and treating conditions related to blood vessels.
4. Non-Invasive Cardiologist
As the term implies, a non-invasive cardiologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats heart conditions using “external” methods of testing. In the evaluation and diagnosis of heart disease, he/she does not insert instruments into the patient’s body.
5. Pediatric Cardiologist
A pediatric cardiologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats heart conditions of children, sometimes even before they are born. Usually, this doctor monitors a child’s condition throughout his/her childhood, teenage years, and even up to adulthood.
