Overview & Features
The Department of Cardiology at Lisie Heart Institute is one of the largest cardiac centers in Kerala providing exceptional care for patients with a team of highly qualified, skilled and dedicated professionals from various cardiac sub-specialties. Clinical services for congenital heart defects by the department, dates way back to 1964 when Dr. T Thomas surgically closed an atrial septal defect under inflow occlusion. This was the first of its kind to be done in the state of Kerala. The department continued to cater to pediatric and congenital heart diseases in the coming years too, under Dr.Moosa Kunju who joined the department in 2002. But the team’s penchant to provide a more comprehensive care, led to the conceptualization and materialization of a state of the art pediatric cardiac department comprising a dedicated team including an exclusive pediatric cardiac surgeon, anesthetist and interventionist.
