Preventive Master Cardiology Health and Community Health Programs

We, at Kauvery Heart Institute, strongly believe in preserving heart health through the timely detection of problems in their early stages. The contemporary busy lifestyle has made us prone to many health problems like high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, diabetes, obesity, etc., which are major risk factors for the development of cardiac diseases. Hence, we have created a unique preventive cardiology programme that consists of a set of essential tests and specialist consultations to help people evaluate their heart function before any signs of abnormalities appear. The goal of the programme is to advise people on lifestyle management that will help

  • Reduce risk factors for heart disease.
  • Prevent strokes and heart attacks.
  • Reduce the need for future surgery.
  • Improve the quality of life
