Get your heart concerns thoroughly assessed
In seeking medical attention, you’ll want to be seen by specialists in the cardiovascular field. Our consultant cardiologists at BMI Hendon Hospital have extensive experience diagnosing and treating the full extent of heart conditions, and are available for private appointments at your earliest convenience.
You should consider seeing one of our cardiologists if you have had any of the following symptoms:
Even if you haven’t been experiencing symptoms, it can be reassuring to see a specialist, especially if you have a family history of heart disease.
Symptoms related to cardiovascular concerns can be an indicator of several heart conditions, including:
Providing reassurance and rapid diagnosis for patients based in North London and the surrounding areas, our cardiologists at BMI Hendon Hospital can offer you quick assessment, detailed investigations and a personalised treatment plan to address your symptoms and bring you relief.
Lifestyle adjustments are sometimes recommended as this can be an effective way of reducing some of your symptoms. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a good diet, while reducing intake of alcohol and nicotine, as well as lowering stress where possible, often gives you a better chance of recovery and has been known to help with certain symptoms.
Some patients may require surgical intervention, and your consultant will be able to advise if this is something that can be done on-site or at a specialist cardiac facility elsewhere. Surgery can be for a number of reasons, such as fitting a pacemaker to ensure your heartbeat stays at the correct rate, the fitting of a stent, or an angioplasty procedure to keep your arteries open.
These procedures can be considered for the right candidates, with your consultant leading you through all the necessary preparations for surgery at another site.
Treatment at BMI Hendon Hospital is evidence-based and personalised to your specific needs, ensuring you always get the most appropriate form of treatment for your condition.
They will also ask about certain risk factors, such as whether or not you smoke or drink heavily, or if you are diabetic. This will be followed by a physical examination, where your consultant will listen to your heart and lungs, alongside checking your blood pressure.
Very often, patients need no further investigations, and your consultant can reassure you that nothing concerning has been found. For patients with high cholesterol or high blood pressure, your consultant can advise you on whether or not you should take medication as a precaution in order to prevent any future concerns.
Diagnostic scans will be required if you have mentioned having chest pain, shortness of breath, or palpitations, as they can be notable symptoms of a serious heart condition. These scans will take advantage of the extensive imaging facilities we have on-site, with further investigations available nearby if appropriate.
Those with palpitations may require a heart rhythm monitor, which records your heart rhythm over a period of 24-48 hours. These are usually sent out to your home address, allowing you to carry on with your normal day-to-day activities while the equipment records your heartbeat. This is especially useful for patients where their symptoms only come on sporadically, allowing your consultant to assess the results of the monitoring at a later date.
