The EECP (Enhanced External Counter pulsation therapy) treatment was inaugurated during September 2012 and has helped patients with advanced heart disease, like intractable chest pain, heart failure, etc., and ones who do not respond to conventional medicines and cannot be treated with bypass surgery or angioplasty. This treatment lasting 6 weeks has led to significant improvements in patients with these problems.
