The need for Cardiovascular procedures has grown as heart disease is on the rise and has become one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Cardiac procedures are used to treat three types of heart disease: Valvular, Coronary and Cardiomyopathy. Valvular heart disease is characteristic of a damaged or defective heart valve and may not close properly or has been narrowed, restricting the blood flow. Coronary heart disease refers to a build up of plaque within the arteries restricting blood flow. Chest pain and heart attacks are symptoms of this type of heart disease. Cardiomyopathy is the disease of the heart muscle. Patients with this disease may suffer from arrhythmia/death.
International Med Retreat specializes in connecting patients with surgeons who focus on Cardiovascular procedures that either repair or replace and entire heart valve (Valve Replacement) or Coronary Artery Bypass which restores full blood flow throughout the heart. The cost of treatments such as a Coronary Artery Bypass typically ranges between $90,000-$150,000 in the United States, however other leaders in Cardiac care such as Europe that has Cardiac centers that are world renowned, can perform the same procedure for a percentage of the cost in the U.S. This makes these procedures affordable and more accessible as over 500,000 are performed every year.
