Nashik, Oct 3 (UNI) Wockhardt Hospital today commenced operations of its state-of-the-art Cardiac Superspeciality services in the district.
''The unit is equipped with the latest facilities to conduct all cardiac programmes, including angioplasty, angiography, bypass surgery, valve surgery and complex cardio-thoracic and vascular surgeries,'' said Suhas Aradhye, an official of the Wockhardt Hospital, here.
The cardiac superspecialist team comprises two full time cardio-thoracic and vascular surgeons, two full-time interventional cardiologists and three part-time interventional cardiologists.

The hospital also offers a unique and distinctive programme, ''Happy Hearts Club'', for patients, who have undergone angiographies, angioplasties, cardiac surgeries or have a family history of cardiac ailments, Mr Aradhye said.
