The Na­tional Heart Cen­tre Sin­ga­pore (NHCS) serves as a na­tional and re­gional re­fer­ral cen­tre for car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases. “For women who de­velop IHD, the NHCS as­sesses their risk of heart attack by con­duct­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions like stress testing and eval­u­at­ing heart func­tion. NHCS also gives ad­vice on life­style changes and pro­vides pa­tients with op­ti­mal med­i­cal treat­ment,” Prof Chin shares.

“For higher-risk in­di­vid­u­als, NHCS doc­tors can per­form pro­ce­dures, such as per­cu­ta­neous coro­nary in­ter­ven­tion or coro­nary artery by­pass graft surgery, to re­store blood flow to the heart.”

If you sus­pect you might be suf­fer­ing from heart dis­ease, don’t hes­i­tate to make an ap­point­ment with your doc­tor.
