Welcome to the Heart and Vein Centre at Mater Private Network.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, chronic tiredness or palpitations, you may be referred to one of our cardiovascular team as these symptoms could indicate that you have a heart- or vascular-related condition.
Conditions of the heart and veins range from high blood pressure, arrhythmias
, and varicose veins, to heart attacks and heart failure. While worrying, there are a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical treatments available to help manage these conditions.
We use the most advanced technology to diagnose heart and vascular disease in people who may be at risk, such as those with high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels, those with heart disease in their family, and those whose lifestyle may have had an impact on their heart health.
Mater Private Network’s Heart & Vascular Centres in our Dublin and Cork hospitals are considered among the best in the country. We offer a complete range of heart and vein-related services, from testing and minimally invasive procedures to complex open heart surgery, all provided by some of the most respected specialist cardiologists and vascular consultants in the world, using the most advanced equipment and technology available.
