Cardiovascular diseases are one of Turkey’s most serious life threatening-disease categories. Turkey also has the highest rate of cardiovascular diseases amongst European countries. It’s for this crucial reason that we aim to place ourselves at the forefront of fighting heart diseases; in order to reach this vital target, we will continue to keep our service approach at an optimal level. The American Hospital’s Cardiology Department, that consists of experienced and skillful doctors, devotes itself to providing the best possible healthcare service. In order to keep our quality at the highest level, we never compromise when it comes to using the very best up-to-date medical technology. We are always meticulous when it comes to following developments in the world of medicine and implementing learned innovations at the highest level through internal and external training programs. We strive to take a patient-oriented service approach one step further by cooperating fully with the cardiovascular surgery and congenital heart disease departments, and the coronary care units. Our Cardiology Department provides dynamic services with its clinic, interventional laboratory and non-invasive tests.
