Instituto Cardiotecnológico (Institute of Cardiotechnology)

ICTA's main value is their experience as a team, which guarantees the best medical care for each patient. Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of morbility and mortality in the Western world. This is why their prevention, early diagnosis and correct treatment are of such importance.

The primary objective of ICTA is to meet all the needs of people at risk of suffering cardiovascular diseases or people who already suffer from them. The Institute has brought together a team of professionals who are highly qualified in the various specialities that provide care for this kind of disease. The main activities are carried out in Xanit International Hospital (Benalmadena), which provides the excellence in both material and human resources necessary to achieve an outstanding level of health care.

In these times of medical “ultra-specialization”, lack of coordination between the doctors treating a patient is all too common, and can generate doubt and uncertainty. The Heart Area of ICTA has four sections: clinical cardiology, cardiac surgery, electrophysiology and hemodynamics.

Its main value, in addition to the high quality and professional qualifications of the men and women who are its members, is their experience as a team, which guarantees the best medical care for each patient. With a unanimous vocation to care for each patient, the professionals who make up the ICTA team give personalised attention in unison, to offer you the finest service and the best in cardiovascular health.
