    What Our London Heart Clinic Does:

    We are experts in keyhole heart surgery London, a breakthrough technology offering a new approach to heart surgery. Keyhole heart surgery London is minimally invasive as opposed to more classic heart surgery techniques, which usually involve breaking and opening the breastbone. Keyhole heart surgery London leaves a scar of only about 3 inches (comparative to 12 inches normally), is much less painful, and means your recovery is far quicker. Keyhole surgery is an excellent option in many cases, as you’ll be back on your feet, doing the activities you love within just a few days, compared to the months it can take to recover from traditional heart surgery.

    What Other Services Does This London Cardiovascular Clinic Offer?

    Our London heart clinic also offers other heart related services, such as our screening programme. Should your family have a history of heart disease, or if you are experiencing symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath or palpitations, a cardiovascular screening can really give you that peace of mind you need, and will help your doctor diagnose and treat any issues you have been having. Additionally, we offer second opinions. You may be wondering whether you are suitable for keyhole heart surgery London, want answers to your questions from the best cardiologists in London, or want some reassurance about your treatment options – whatever the query, we are here to help. This can either be in person at our London heart clinic, or online, depending on your location. We would always remember an in-person consultation or second opinion, but our remote service allows you to utilise our expertise, even if you are not local to our clinic.

    Where Is The Keyhole Heart Clinic Based?

    The Keyhole Heart Clinic is a London cardiovascular clinic, Mr Inderpaul Birdi works in the NHS, and practices at The Harley Street Clinic and The Wellington Hospital, London. Most of the best cardiologist London consultation work takes place in London, however, we understand not everyone who needs our services live in this area. Therefore, if you live a very long way away, we also offer a remote (online) consultation service, where we will discuss your symptoms and health history, and asses your needs on a video call with yourself. We would always recommend an in-person consultation, but this offering means those that need help and cannot travel for a consultation can also utilise our London cardiovascular clinic consultation services – from the comfort of their own home. If you can travel for a consultation, we would always recommend to. If you decide to proceed with the surgery after consultation, cardiovascular surgery will either take place in London or Essex.

    • ‘I have nothing but praise for the opportunity to benefit from this latest surgical technique. The rapid recovery has enabled me to carry on with my personal plans with little interruption.’
    • ‘I felt confident that he would fix me. He was so passionate about what he could do. As upsetting as it was to learn about the danger I was in, I felt I could trust him. He didn’t sugar coat anything. He simply told me the facts and what he would do to solve the problem. I left feeling confident that I was in excellent hands.’

His main concern all along is your needs. When I considered that the most important organ in the human body was being entrusted to this very honest and unassuming person with such an excellent knowledge, I was imparted with confidence at every step.

    What Are the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Keyhole Heart Surgery London?

    Minimally invasive keyhole heart surgery is what we specialise in. Keyhole heart surgery London must be carried out by a specialist cardiologist London – such as Mr Inderpaul Birdi – as it is a relatively new technique and requires a different skillset to traditional heart surgery. Not every candidate for heart surgery is applicable for minimally invasive keyhole heart surgery (this will be determined at your consultation), but where possible we would recommend this type of surgery for every patient for whom it is safe and possible. At your consultation, our experts will determine whether it is suitable for you and your health. If it is, the benefits of minimally invasive surgery are incredible. Here are a few of the benefits of keyhole heart surgery from a private cardiologist London:

    • No breastbone division: keyhole heart surgery London is completed through small incisions to the chest or groin by a skilled cardiologist London, rather than necessitating a full breastbone division.
    • Lesser recovery time: because traditional heart surgery included breastbone division (and, on top of heart surgery, you are essentially dealing with a broken bone), it is a major surgery, and requires a long time to heal. With keyhole surgery, it is much more minimally invasive, and as such does not take months to recover from – instead, you should completely be back to ‘normal life’ within a few weeks.
    • Smaller & more subtle scarring: because keyhole heart surgery only requires a few small incisions (and sometimes none at all), the cosmetic result is much more superior. Scarring is minimal and is coverable, meaning you can wear your normal clothes with no alterations necessary. With breastbone division, you will usually be left with a 12-inch scar, whereas with keyhole surgery, it will only be around 3 inches long.
    • No risk of bone infection: because keyhole heart surgery London does not require bones to be broken, there is no risk of bone infection.
    • Heal within 7 days: due to the minimally invasive nature of keyhole surgery, the wound should heal within a week.
    • Less pain: keyhole heart surgery by a private cardiologist London means you will experience less pain than after traditional heart surgery. The fact no bones are broken during the surgery means you will experience less discomfort during recovery.
