IN a landmark moment for health care in Pietermaritzburg, Midlands Medical Centre (MMC) Private Hospital recently completed its first heart-related procedures, including open-heart surgery, coronary angiography and stent insertion.

The hospital’s new flagship facility, the Midlands Heart Centre, is now up and running and will bring a new lease on life for locals with cardiac conditions.

The surgery was performed by specialist cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Suren Naidoo and the cardiac procedures were conducted by specialist cardiologist Dr Sanjay Maharaj. Maharaj said that patients now have a 24-hour heart centre which offers the highest quality of care, while Naidoo emphasised that improved follow up and early intervention will assist in addressing the high incidence of adult congenital heart disease in South Africa. — Supplied.
