Cardiac Surgery - Adult/Kolkata

Congenital Heart problems are quite common in our country with 8 out of every 1000 babies being born with it. There are no identifiable risk factors when it comes to this disease. However, if your child has fast breathing, poor weight gain, etc., it is advisable to consult a Paediatric Cardiologist. Healthy eating and regular exercise are two habits that can be taught early in life to prevent such diseases.

Talking further about heart defects in babies is Dr. Debasree Gangopadhyay, Consultant – Paediatric Cardiologist at Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Kolkata.
