Dr. Suhas Hardas

Hardas Heart Care

Doctor, teacher, leader and humanitarian, Dr. Suhas Hardas is truly a healer beyond the operating theatre. “Cardiovascular diseases develop long before it’s signs and symptoms do” says Pune’s eminent interventional cardiologist, Dr. Suhas Hardas. With an extensive experience spanning over two decades in numerous aspects of cardiology, he has healed over a hundred thousand patients during his tenure. His contributions to the field of medicine have been recognised not just in India but also across the globe.

“I consider myself a health crusader who is strongly committed to compassionate patient care with a focus on quality of life” says Dr. Hardas.

Dr Hardas has received much fame and recognition for performing and mastering groundbreaking procedures in the field of cardiology. A specialist in coronary angioplasties and interventions, he has successfully performed over ten thousand coronary angioplasties as an independent operator, even in the most complex of cases. In fact, he is extensively trained in not just coronary interventions but also electrophysiology and cardiac resynchronisation. Dr Hardas uses his dedication and God-given talent to take on seemingly impossible operations, which has led to him performing the highest number of post MI VSD closures in the state of Maharashtra amongst other feats.

Having completed his M.B.B.S. and M.D. from the prestigious B.J. Medical College, Dr Hardas went on to complete his D.M from Grant Medical College, Mumbai. To quench his unending thirst for further education, he was thereafter awarded fellowships in Interventional Cardiology as well as Electrophysiology and Pacing in Australia. This was followed by a post-fellowship training in Mitraclip (percutaneous repair of the mitral valve) in the USA. An accomplished international cardiologist, Dr Hardas has been recognised with numerous academic, professional, and patient-driven awards.

Practising at premier medical institutes such as Ruby Hall Clinic and Poona Hospital, it was in early 2010 that Dr Hardas established his flagship cardiac centre - Hardas Heart Care. A holistic centre, this facility caters to a range of cardiac ailments going beyond just medicine. Here, he is backed by a team of experienced specialists in every branch of cardiac care and rehabilitation.

“I’m a strong proponent of preventive medicine. While we aim to raise patients’ awareness about their own wellbeing, this centre treats your heart, calms your mind and heals your soul ”, he says.

In his work, Dr Hardas reaches beyond the scope of medicine and is deemed by many as a dedicated philanthropist. While a number of medical programs facilitate cardiac care for the economically backward communities, Hardas Heart Foundation, established in 2012 adds a futuristic approach to cardiac well being. Enhancing a connected and united foundation while increasing knowledge, Dr Hardas’s immaculate oratory skills come into play during a number of awareness programs undertaken by the foundation. With the vision to empower people to help save lives, he conceived the idea of Vardaan, open to all, voluntary CPR training workshops.

With an all-encompassing global experience in Germany, Australia, USA and India, Dr Hardas leaves no stone unturned when it comes to increasing awareness about preventive techniques of cardiovascular diseases. In addition to his exceptional achievements, he is a widely sought after motivational speaker and live demonstrator, who has addressed a variety of audiences at a number of prestigious national and international medical congresses.

Dr Hardas speaks passionately about the cause he believes so firmly in. “One of my key responsibilities as a cardiologist is to help people understand that heart health and cardiovascular disease risk are measured in decades. I believe a huge part of healthcare is prevention, and I stress the importance of activities such as exercise, that could reduce the risk of heart disease.”
