Private Service, Cardiology
8:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
The Cardiology Institute provides comprehensive private cardiology services in three locations on the North Shore, Greenlane and Howick, Auckland. Our highly trained team of North Shore Hospital-based cardiologists cover all aspects of general and preventive cardiology, multi-modality imaging (imaging the heart with different techniques, ultrasound, CT and MRI), electrophysiology (heart rhythm disorders) and cardiovascular intervention (angioplasty and stenting).
Our group is committed to prompt provision of the following services:
- General cardiology consultations including cardiovascular risk assessment
- Assessment and treatment of high blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythms and palpitations, valvular heart disease (abnormal heart valves) and heart failure.
- Rest and exercise ECGs (exercise treadmills)
- Holter and Event monitoring
- Ambulatory blood pressure recording (for the diagnosis and asessement of hypertension)
- Resting and Stress Echocardiography
- Transoesophageal Echocardiography*
- CT Coronary angiography and coronary calcium score testing*
- Cardiac MRI*
- Coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (angioplasty and stenting)*
- Renal angiography and stenting*
- Electrophysiology studies (abnormal heart rhythm investigations) and Radio Frequency Ablations (invasive treatment of abnormal rhythms)*
- Pacemaker implantation*.
All procedures are done in our custom-fitted rooms, except those in asterisks.

What is Cardiology?
Cardiology is the specialty within medicine that looks at the heart and blood vessels. Your heart consists of four chambers, which are responsible for pumping blood to your lungs and then the rest of your body. The study of the heart includes the heart muscle (the myocardium), the valves within the heart between the chambers, the blood vessels that supply blood (and hence oxygen and nutrients) to the heart muscle, and the electrical system of the heart which is what controls the heart rate.
We currently provide same day urgent appointments.
Your GP will refer you to us if they are concerned about your heart and want a specialist opinion.
You may be sent a questionnaire prior to your clinic visit to assist us with making a diagnosis and determining if any tests need to be done prior to you seeing a specialist.
Please bring along copies of previous reports from your doctor, any other specialist or hospital discharge records if you have any, and also a list of your current medications.
Cardiology Institute are Southern Cross Affiliated Providers for the full range of procedures under the Cardiology (Heart disorder diagnosis & treatment) service.

Procedures / Treatments
You may be asked to have blood tests before coming to clinic, often to check your cholesterol level and screen for diabetes. These blood tests are best done "fasting", i.e.… More
Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary artery disease refers to the narrowing of arteries that supply blood to heart muscle.… More
An ECG is a recording of your heart's electrical activity.… More
An ECG whilst at rest may be normal despite significant coronary artery disease. During an exercise ECG, the heart is made to work harder so that if there is any blood vessel narrowing, poor blood supply may be picked up on the heart tracings.… More
Echocardiogram and Stress Echocardiography
Echocardiography is also referred to as cardiac ultrasound. This test is performed by a specially trained technician, and interpreted by expert imaging cardiologists.… More
CT Coronary Angiography and Calcium Scoring
CT coronary angiography uses advanced CT scanner imaging and intravenous contrast material (dye), to obtain reconstituted images of the coronary arteries and the heart.… More
Coronary angiography images the coronary arteries, and is the gold standard test for coronary artery disease.… More
Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting
Coronary angioplasty and stenting, also known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is a procedure designed to treat blockages in the coronary arteries, hence supplying the heart with more blood flow carrying more oxygen.… More
Heart failure refers to the heart failing to pump efficiently.… More
MRI uses large magnets and radio-frequency waves to produce high-definition images of the heart and blood vessels.… More
Heart valves divide our heart into 4 chambers that receive and send blood to the lungs and body.… More
Cardiac Arrhythmias: types, investigations and some treatments
A complex electric system within the heart muscle controls and coordinates your heart rate and heart muscle contraction.… More
Renal Angiography and Stenting
The renal arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood to the kidneys. Renal artery stenosis (renal artery narrowing) is most often caused by atherosclerosis or a specific fibrous disease of the arteries (called fibromuscular dysplasia).… More
