Top 10 Best Cardiology Clinics in Singapore

Cardiology clinics provide treatment for heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular conditions. Cardiology clinics typically have a team of doctors and nurses who are experienced in treating these diseases. The clinic may also have facilities that can test patients for heart disease and other conditions. Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases and conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels. There are a variety of cardiology clinics in Singapore that can provide you with quality care. Here are the top 10 best cardiology clinics in Singapore, based on customer feedback and Google reviews. 


#1 – EH Heart Specialist Clinic

Introduction:

Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in Singapore? Cardiovascular disease accounted for 29.5% of all deaths in 2016. This means that nearly 1 in 3 deaths in Singapore is due to heart disease or stroke! However, if detected early and managed well, you can reduce your risk levels and prevent heart disease successfully. Our heart clinic provides comprehensive cardiovascular care with a personalized and multidisciplinary approach. We treat the full range of heart disease, from congestive heart failure to congenital heart disease, along with dedicated rehabilitation efforts and patient education to help you understand and manage your condition better.

Type of Services:

  • Our Cardiology Services
    • Cardiac PET (Positron Emission Tomography)
      • Patients are evaluated using a PET scanner after intravenoulsy injected with a radioisotope. This test is much faster than traditional myocardial stress test and can be completed within 30 minutes. It is also more accurate with the advantage of assessing individual coronary arteries and coronary flow reserve non invasively. All these make cardiac PET ideal for intermediate risk patients requiring risk stratification. This includes diabetics, stroke patients, renal impaired patients, patients with implants and post revascularisation patients (stents, CABG).
    • What is an Echocardiogram for?
      • An echocardiogram, also known as a cardio echo, is a test that uses ultrasound to capture images of the heart. It is done to assess the heart’s overall condition and detect any problems concerning its function and structure. As a diagnostic tool, an echocardiogram can be performed to find the root cause of symptoms like palpitations, angina or shortness of breath. It can identify the type and progression of heart diseases in all ages, even congenital defects in fetuses. The test may also be ordered post-treatment to evaluate its outcome and effectiveness.
  • Types of Stress Testing
    • There are three main types of stress tests, which are:
    • STANDARD EXERCISE STRESS TEST
      • This involves walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike at increasing levels of intensity as the test progresses. An ECG machine measures and records your heart’s electrical activity (rhythms) through electrode patches (placed on the chest, arms and legs) both while exercising and at rest. At the same time, a cuff is attached to the arm to measure blood pressure. You may also be requested to breathe into a special mouthpiece to better monitor your breathing.
  • Multi-slice CT coronary Angiography & Calcium Scoring
    • Coronary Angiography (CTA) is a non-invasive heart imaging modality that produces high-resolution, 3-dimensional pictures of the heart and great vessels, to determine the presence of fatty or calcium deposits (plaques) in the coronary arteries. Coronary CTA is able to rule out significant narrowing of the major coronary arteries and detect “soft plaque,” in the coronary artery walls that may lead to heart problems in the majority of individuals. The calcium-score screening is a test used to detect calcium deposits found in atherosclerotic plaque in the coronary arteries. It is used to evaluate the risk for future coronary artery disease.
      • Ambulatory ECG Monitoring
      • Treadmill ExerciseTest (TMX)
      • 24-hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABP)
      • Comprehensive Range of Blood / Urine Investigations
  • State-of-the-heart Hybrid PET CT
    • Hybrid PET CT involves the combination of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT) systems. The main advantage of hybrid PET CT is the visualisation of both coronary artery anatomy and understanding physiological significance during the same imaging session. Whereas coronary CT angiography provides information on the presence and extent of the stenosis in the coronary artery that leads to coronary artery disease (CAD), these new PET blood flow tracers provide information on the downstream functional significance of these obstructive lesions. Currently, the clinical applications mainly focus on the identification of coronary artery stenosis, which can be treated by coronary interventions. With advances in technology, CT angiography may allow imaging of the plaque morphology, not only going beyond the assessment of the luminal stenosis but also allowing the new radio-labelled ligands in the application of PET, to assess plaque biology and instability. This is particularly relevant in asymptomatic patients with coronary risk factors.
      • Athlete Screening & Exercise Prescription
      • Specialist Consultation
      • 12-Lead Electrocardiogram (ECG)
      • Carotid Ultrasound for Evaluation of Possible Future Coronary Artery Disease

      • Heart disease in Women
      • Nutrition and Obesity
      • Preventive Cardiology
      • Sports and Exercise

Type of Services:

  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
    • Cardiac resynchronization is a treatment for heart failure patients with left bundle branch block. It is achieved by implanting a pacemaker or defibrillator with three leads, an atrial, right ventricular and left ventricular lead. The procedure to implant a cardiac resynchronization device is similar to a permanent pacemaker or defibrillator implantation.
  • Coronary Artery Stenting
    • Coronary artery stenting is a procedure used to treat coronary artery stenosis.
    • A coronary stent is a tube-like piece of metal scaffolding which is implanted at the site of narrowing in a coronary artery to widen it. It is delivered to the site of narrowing through a coronary catheter which is inserted through an artery in the groin or wrist. In the factory packaging, the stent is wrapped around a tiny balloon catheter which is kept deflated. The balloon catheter is delivered to the site of narrowing and the balloon is inflated, thus expanding the stent. The stent adheres to the inner wall of the blood vessel. Over time, a layer of cells grow over the stent and cover it so that the stent becomes incorporated in to the artery wall. The stent is left permanently in the artery.
    • After the stenting procedure, the catheter is removed and pressure is exerted over the entry site in the groin or wrist until bleeding has stopped. A pressure bandage is applied, the patient is kept on bed rest for 4 to 6 hours, and his vital signs are monitored. If there are no complications, he may be discharged the next day. He may resume activities as advised by his cardiologist. He has to take two types of blood thinning medication to prevent a clot from forming at the site of the stent. He may stop one of the blood thinning medications only when his cardiologist advises him that it is safe to do so. Under no circumstances can he stop both the blood thinners without informing his cardiologist.
  • Defibrillator Implantation
    • An implantable defibrillator is an electronic device which can sense the heartbeat and detect ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, automatically charge up and deliver a high energy shock to revert the heart to a normal rhythm. It is implanted in the same way as a permanent pacemaker. (See TREATMENT: PERMANENT PACEMAKER IMPLANTATION for more information)
    • During the implantation procedure, after the leads have been inserted and connected to the pulse generator, an additional part of the procedure called defibrillation testing may be performed. The purpose of this is to test the system by inducing ventricular fibrillation, waiting for the defibrillator to detect it and automatically charge up and deliver a high energy shock to terminate the arrhythmia. This provides confidence that the system will function when the arrhythmia actually happens. Defibrillation testing is done under deep sedation and with an external defibrillator backup.
    • Two kinds of implantable defibrillators are available
      • Totally subcutaneous ICD – the whole system is under the skin but not inside the heart.
      • Transvenous ICD – the wire component of the system is inside the heart, the battery component is under the skin.
  • Implantable Loop Recorder Insertion
    • An implantable loop recorder is an ECG recorder used for long term ECG monitoring, for as long as three years. Such long term monitoring is necessary for symptoms such as syncope, when other tests have failed to provide an explanation.
    • It is a small device, implanted on the chest wall, underneath the skin, with the ability to record the ECG continuously, detect an arrhythmic event and store it. When interrogated the information can be retrieved and the diagnosis can be made.
  • Permanent Pacemaker Implantation
    • A pacemaker is an electronic device which can sense the heartbeat and put out electrical pulses to stimulate the heart to beat when its rate falls below a certain set rate. It consists of wires (leads) and a battery (pulse generator). Permanent pacemakers are implanted in patients with low heart rates and symptoms of giddiness, loss of consciousness or breathlessness.
    • Permanent pacemaker implantation is a minor operation performed under local anesthesia with or without conscious sedation. The pacemaker is implanted in the upper chest below the collar bone. A small incision is made and the lead is introduced through a vein in the upper chest area. Using X rays, the lead is guided into the heart chamber and fixated in a stable position. One or two leads may be implanted in this way. Single chamber pacemakers have only one lead while dual chamber pacemakers have two leads. The lead/s are connected to the pulse generator at the other end. A small pocket is made under the skin and the lead/s and pulse generator are placed in this pocket. The pocket is closed by stitching up the incision. A sterile dressing is placed over the incision.
    • Pacemaker batteries usually last 5-10 years. When the battery is depleted, the old pulse generator is replaced with a new one. An incision is made over the old one, the lead/s are disconnected from the pulse generator and connected to the new one and the incision is stitched up again.
  • Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation
    • This is a treatment procedure for cardiac arrhythmias such as supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation.
    • An electrophysiological study is first performed to confirm the mechanism and origin of the arrhythmia. (See TESTS: ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY STUDY for more information)
    • An ablation catheter, similar to the catheters used for the EP study, is positioned at the site of origin of the arrhythmia. The ablation catheter is connected externally to a radiofrequency generator. Radiofrequency energy is delivered through the tip of the ablation catheter. This heats up the tissue in contact with the tip and renders the arrhythmia no longer inducible at the end of the procedure.
    • At the end of the procedure, all the catheters are removed and pressure is applied at the entry sites till bleeding has stopped and a bandage is applied. After the procedure, the patient is put on bed rest for 6-8 hours and his vital signs are monitored. The next day, the groin is checked for signs of bleeding and if there are no complications, he is discharged from hospital. After discharge, he may resume normal activities like walking, but strenuous physical exercise is not advised for two weeks in order to allow the heart tissue to heal. He may be required to continue with medication as prescribed by the electrophysiologist.

Feature:

  • OUR SPECIALTIES
    • CHEST PAIN
      • Chest pain should never be taken lightly. Chest pain can manifest in different forms – a sharp pain, dull throbbing, stabbing, burning or squeezing sensations are often some of the most common symptoms that patients report. This is a large cause of concern especially if there is a family history of heart disease.
      • Find out more about how Dr Tan can help you resolve chest pain with modern medicine and technology.
  • Types of Chest Pain:
    • Chest pain can be experienced in different forms, and be described as the following:
      • Dull
      • Burning
      • Spiky
      • Hurting
      • Tight, crushing or squeezing sensation
      • Stabbing
  • It is important to remember that experiencing chest pain does not necessarily mean that it is a heart attack. Even so, there are many potential reasons that blood vessel or heart problems are involved in chest pain.
    • Causes Of Chest Pain:
      • Heart attack
      • Myocardial infarction
      • Sac inflammation
      • Aorta wall tear
      • Lung collapse
      • Blood clotting
      • Swelling of lung lining

Dr Julian Tan believes in combining minimally-invasive heart treatments with lifestyle changes for long-term heart treatment. With a range of procedures that have little to no downtime, Dr Tan can get your heart to its full function as soon as possible.

With a combination of minimally invasive techniques such as coronary stenting, angioplasties and balloon angioplasty, Dr Tan has treated over 1000 blocked arteries in Singapore.

  • BALLOON ANGIOPLASTY
    • Primarily used to relieve narrowing and obstruction of coronary arteries, balloon angioplasty (or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty) uses an empty, collapse balloon to flatten or compress plague in the artery walls.
    • This is usually done via a small incision in the groin, wrist or elbow and carefully guided to the blocked artery.
  • CORONARY STENTING
    • Coronary stents are small, expandable tubes that are used to treat coronary heart disease. They act as a support structure to keep narrowed or weakened arteries open, allowing for uninterrupted blood flow while reducing symptoms of chest pain.
    • Coronary stenting is a minimally invasive method used to keep arteries open and unclogged. In the hands of an experienced specialist, coronary stenting is often used as the procedure is an effective way to ease the symptoms of heart disease and reducing damage to your heart.
  • Coronary stenting is:
    • Minimally invasive with no major incisions
    • Performed with local anaesthesia
    • Usually completed within an hour
    • Lower in discomfort
    • Quicker in recovery
  • Before an angioplasty or stenting can be performed, an angiography is usually performed to allow Dr Tan to visualise the blood vessels and examine any potential blockage on a screen.

Feature:

  • Heart (or cardiac) screening involves detailed history, physical examination and non-invasive tests that help recognise cardiac abnormalities that would otherwise go undetected because there are no obvious symptoms yet. It helps an individual assess his or her risk of developing future cardiac events, and identify risk factors that can be mitigated by early detection and treatment.
  • Capital Heart Centre offers 4 tiers of customised heart screening packages for heart-health assessment. These are:
  • Essential screening — this consists of basic tests for a heart health assessment, from various blood investigations to assess cardiovascular risk factors, to electrocardiography (ECG) and exercise treadmill ECG test.
  • Comprehensive screening — this consists of comprehensive heart health and risk assessments. In addition to ECG and exercise treadmill ECG, a detailed transthoracic echocardiography looks at the structure and function of the heart. It is also suitable for NS pre-enlistment screening and sports programme screening.
  • Executive screening — this package is advised for those aged 40 and above, and/or those who have one or more cardiovascular risk factors. In addition to ECG, exercise treadmill ECG and transthoracic echocardiography, a CT calcium score assesses the individual’s risk of future heart attack.
  • Premium screening is a complete risk assessment recommended for persons aged 50 and above, and/or those who have one or more cardiovascular risk factors and/or a family history of cardiovascular issues. In addition to ECG and transthoracic echocardiography, a CT coronary angiography detects cholesterol plaque deposits causing coronary artery disease and assesses for narrowings and blockages.
  • Each screening package involves a pre-screening clinical assessment with the cardiologist, which involves a detailed walkthrough of your past medical and family history, and a physical examination.

Type of Services:

  • Electrocardiography (ECG)
    • An Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a diagnostic test that measures the electrical activity of the heart. Every heartbeat starts with an electrical wave that travels through the heart, causing the heart muscles to squeeze and pump blood towards the other parts of the body.
  • Ambulatory ECG Monitoring (Holter)
    • Usually referred to simply as a Holter monitor, it is a machine used to continuously monitor your heart’s rate and rhythm over a period of 24 hours or more. Within this time, electrodes are attached to your chest with a small recording monitor. Advancements in technology have produced Holter monitors that are more lightweight, smaller and more comfortable.
  • Ambulatory BP Monitoring (ABP)
    • Ambulatory Blood Pressure (ABP) Monitoring measures your blood pressure (BP) at regular intervals over a 24-hour period, during which you may go about your regular daily activities.
    • To perform ABP monitoring, you will wear a blood pressure cuff around your upper arm that will be attached to a small digital device that can measure your blood pressure automatically. The cuff and monitoring device is worn over 24 hours.
  • Exercise Treadmill ECG Test (TMX)
    • An Exercise Treadmill ECG test is one of the most common stress tests performed to evaluate the heart’s response to physical stress. The test involves walking on a treadmill at gradually increasing speeds and inclines. This makes your heart pump harder and faster, and may uncover problems within your heart that might not be detected otherwise.
  • Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE)
    • An echocardiogram is a painless and non-invasive test used to look at the heart and blood vessels. It is a type of ultrasound scan, which uses high-frequency sound waves to take detailed images of the moving heart to evaluate its structure and function.
    • In transthoracic echocardiography, an ultrasound transducer or probe is placed on the chest. This transducer sends sound waves which enter and travel through the chest cavity. When these waves meet the heart and other surrounding organs, it is reflected back. These reflected waves are known as echoes.
    • The echoes will travel back to the same ultrasound transducer where it is received and converted into images of the moving heart.
    • Transthoracic echocardiography is very safe, and it is one of the most commonly used tests in cardiology.
  • Stress Echocardiography
    • An echocardiogram is a non-invasive test to look at the heart and large blood vessels. Echocardiography uses ultrasound waves to take detailed images of the moving heart.
    • Some heart conditions surface only during physical activity. A stress echocardiogram is used to assess the heart function in response to stress. Ultrasound images of the heart are taken as the heart beats harder and faster during exercise (or simulated with injected medications).
    • The images taken during exercise stress are compared to those taken at rest. If any part of the heart contracts abnormally during exercise stress, this may suggest a lack of blood supply to that area.
  • CT Coronary Angiography (CTCA)
    • CT Coronary Angiography is an advanced imaging technique that uses the (Computed Tomography) scanner to obtain detailed images of the heart and coronary arteries.
  • Coronary Calcium Score
    • A coronary calcium score (or sometimes known as Agatston score) utilises a specialised type of x-ray called a CT scan. It measures how much calcified plaque is in your coronary arteries.
  • Nuclear Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
    • A Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MPI) test, also known as a Myocardial Perfusion Scan or Nuclear Stress Test, is a non-invasive heart imaging test that shows how well blood flows through to your heart muscle and how well your heart muscle pumps blood to the rest of the body.
    • It helps your doctor discern which area of the heart muscle is not getting enough blood flow. The scans are taken when your heart is under exercise stress and when it is at rest to detect any irregularities.
  • Cardiac MRI
    • Also known as Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR), a Cardiac MRI is a type of Cardiac imaging test used to diagnose various heart diseases. It involves the use of a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine. The machine utilises very powerful magnets and radiofrequency pulses to visualise your heart tissues at a high resolution — allowing the cardiologist to evaluate the heart’s anatomy and function and to detect Cardiac diseases.
    • Some Cardiac MRI tests require the use of a gadolinium-based contrast dye injected into the bloodstream. These are used to accurately localise areas in the heart muscle which are damaged.
  • Coronary Angiography
    • A coronary angiogram is a procedure that looks at the coronary arteries in your heart to detect narrowing or blockages. The coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart muscle. During a coronary angiogram, a small tube (catheter) is inserted through a large artery in the wrist or the groin, and is advanced to the heart and placed at the openings of the coronary arteries. To see the coronary arteries, a special contrast dye is injected through the catheter and into the blood vessels. Using live X-ray, pictures are taken to detect the location and severity of the blockages. This will help your doctor plan your treatment.
  • Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting
    • Coronary Angioplasty (Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) is a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting a small balloon catheter into a narrowed or blocked artery to open up the blocked artery. This helps to improve the blood flow to the heart muscles.
    • A small wire mesh tube, known as the stent, is often implanted during an Angioplasty which props the artery open and reduces the chances of the artery narrowing again. Most modern stents are coated with medication which is released gradually to prevent narrowing within the stent and to keep the artery open.
    • Coronary Angioplasty is performed to improve symptoms of narrowed or blocked arteries such as chest pain (angina) and shortness of breath. Coronary Angioplasty is also performed during a heart attack to immediately open an acutely blocked artery and lessen the damage to the heart. Performed emergently during a heart attack, Angioplasty is potentially life-saving.
  • Electrophysiology (EP) Study
    • An Electrophysiological (EP) Study helps assess the heart’s electrical system and to detect any abnormalities in its conduction system that could be causing heart rhythm disorders. It is commonly used to diagnose abnormal heartbeats or arrhythmias and involves the insertion of catheters or wire electrodes to measure the heart’s electrical activity. 
    • An EP study is carried out by cardiologists who specialise in heart rhythm disorders and helps them map the pathways of complex arrhythmias to determine the best course of action when a catheter ablation is done.
  • Pacemakers
    • Pacemakers are a type of Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Device (CIED) used to treat arrhythmias, also known as heart rhythm disorders. This is done by keeping your heart beating steadily using electrical impulses sent directly to the lower chambers of the heart. The electric shock helps correct any irregularities or abnormalities in the heartbeat.

#10 – Sozo Cardiology

Introduction:

We have accurate diagnostic cardiac investigative modalities such as in-house electrocardiography (ECG), treadmill tests, transthoracic echocardiogram to answer your questions on difficult cardiac issues and provide second opinions to your clinical problem. Using evidenced-based treatment options such as coronary angioplasty with stents, pacemaker implantation and other interventional treatments, we aim to restore you back to health again.

Feature:

Sozo (σῴζω) is a Greek word meaning ‘to save one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, preserve, restore to health and to make one whole again’. At Sozo Cardiology, we are deeply committed to providing you with a holistic evaluation of your cardiovascular concerns, coupled with evidence-based cutting-edge treatments in order to achieve the best outcome for your heart and restore you to health.

Since 2015, our clinic is helmed by Senior General Consultant and Interventional Cardiologist Dr Ooi Yau Wei, who has more than 20 years of experience in managing complex cardiovascular diseases. He believes in delivering the highest quality of clinical care to every patient who walks through the door regardless of their socio-economic status. He will guide them along a path that best fits their values, preferences and goals, so that they will make well-informed decisions not out of ignorance or fear.

Together with his warm and friendly team of nurses and cardiac technicians, he aims to work honestly, ethically and with integrity towards all his patients with utmost sincerity so as to provide the highest level of cardiovascular care in a cost-effective manner. He strongly believes in developing a long-lasting relationship with his patients based on mutual trust and respect.

We offer comprehensive evaluation of patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations and fainting spells using the latest state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment (eg ECG, Diagnostic Echocardiography and Stress Echocardiography, Exercise Treadmill Test, 24/48 hour Ambulatory blood pressure and cardiac monitoring devices, High-resolution CT heart scans and Pacemaker/Implantable cardiac defibrillator checks). These equipment provide highly valuable information in the overall diagnostic evaluation of our patients.

We also offer various cardiac-specific screening packages to suit your needs. Rapid-turnaround in-clinic cardiac risk factor biochemical analyses save time for patients with a busy schedule.

We provide specialized treatments for patients with complex coronary artery disease, heart failure, heart rhythm disorders, heart muscle and valve diseases, and difficult-to-manage cholesterol and blood pressure disorders. We also perform specialized procedures such as coronary angiography and stent insertion, pacemaker and cardiac defibrillator device implantation and catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias, using only the latest and most innovative equipment.

Interventional procedures (eg. stenting) for patients, are performed in the state-of-the-art cardiac interventional suite in Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, using the best-in-class stents under the guidance of the latest technology in coronary imaging eg. Intra-Vascular UltraSound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). Advanced interventional techniques such as Rotablation and Shockwave Intravascular Lithotripsy for heavily calcified difficult to treat heart artery blockages are also utilized in achieving optimal stenting results. These procedures can also be done in Mount Elizabeth Orchard Hospital, Gleneagles Hospital or Parkway East Hospital if you prefer

Type of Services:

Heart Investigations
If you are suffering from chest pains, shortness of breath, palpitations or fainting spells, you should consider a proper diagnostic evaluation to better understand what is causing your symptoms. This will allow early reassurance if it is normal and prompt treatment if something abnormal is detected

Heart Treatments

Specialist Treatments For Complex Disorders

We provide specialist treatments for patients with complex coronary artery disease, heart failure, heart rhythm disorders, heart muscle and valve diseases, and difficult-to-manage cholesterol and blood pressure disorders. We also provide specialized procedures such as coronary angiography and stent insertion, pacemaker and cardiac defibrillator device implantation and catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias, using only the latest and most innovative equipment.

Heart Screening

The incidence of coronary artery disease (blocked heart arteries) has increased exponentially with increasing affluence of modern society. It has now become one of the leading causes of death in the developed world. Having no family history of heart disease or being able to perform vigorous exercise does not preclude one from having underlying coronary or structural heart disease.
