Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the heart as well as parts of the circulatory system. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of the congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, electrophysiology and valvular heart disease. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists. Paediatric cardiologists are paediatricians who specialize in cardiology. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are called cardiac surgeons or cardiothoracic surgeons, a specialty of general surgery. All the cardiologists study the disorders of heart, but the study of child and adult heart disorders are in different  pathways , Cardiology are concerned with the normal functionality of the heart and deviation from an healthy heart. Many disorders involve the heart itself but some are outside of the heart and inside the vascular system.

Cardiac surgery / cardiovascular surgery  is surgery on the heart or great vessels which is performed by cardiac surgeons. It is often used to treat ischemic heart disease (coronary artery bypass grafting); to correct congenital heart disease or to treat valvular heart disease from various causes, including endocarditis, atherosclerosis and rheumatic heart disease. It also includes heart transplantation. Traditional heart surgery, often called as open-heart surgery which is done by opening the chest wall to operate the heart. Another type of heart surgery is known as off-pump or beating heart surgery. The results of heart surgery in adults are excellent. Heart surgery can reduce symptoms and  improve the quality of life.

An interventional cardiologist has a specialty in cardiovascular medicine and manages diseases of the cardiovascular system.

Heart conditions that include diseased vessels, structural problems, and blood clots called as Cardiovascular diseases or Heart disease. Atherosclerosis is a condition which  develops when a substance called plaque builds up in the walls of the arteries. Heart attack occurs when the blood flow to a part of the heart which get blocked by a clot. Cardiothoracic surgeons operate on diseases which occur in the organs inside the chest and in the bony structures.

The branch of medical science concerned with children and their diseases. A paediatric cardiologist is a paediatrician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating children's cardiac problems. Evaluation and treatment may begin with the foetus since heart problems can now be detected before birth.

The division of  the Cardiovascular medicine is committed to the higher levels of  the patient care, development and discovery of better treatments for cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular is related  to the circulatory system, which comprises the heart and blood vessels which carries nutrients and oxygen to the tissues of the body and removes carbon dioxide and other wastes from them. Cardiovascular diseases are conditions which affect the heart and blood vessels.

Thoracic surgery repairs injured or tissues and diseased organs in the thoracic cavity. The thoracic cavity lies between the neck and diaphragm & contains the heart and lungs, trachea, pleura, esophagus,  diaphragm ,mediastinum, and chest wall. Cardiothoracic surgery also includes the disorders of  pericardium and heart. Lung Cancer , reflux esophagitis, esophageal cancer , lung transplantation,  emphysema and  Blunt chest trauma, are just a few of many clinical indications for thoracic surgery.  Lung cancer is the most frequent indication for the thoracic surgery.

Robotic surgery is the type of minimally invasive surgery which means instead of operating on patients through large incisions, miniaturized surgical instruments are used which fit through a series of quarter-inch incisions. Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform many complex procedures with more flexibility, precision and control. Robotic surgery is new and exciting emerging technology which is taking the surgical profession by storm. However, the race to incorporate and acquire this emerging technology has primarily been driven by the market.

Epidemiology is the study of the causes, statistics and health effects of disease conditions in a particular population. Epidemiology shapes policy decisions and proof-based actions through identification of risk factors for disease and targets for preventive health. Epidemiology helps to develop methodology to be used in clinical research studies, and, to a lesser extent, basic research in the biological sciences. Epidemiological studies involve an introduction, entire historical background, surveillance data sources, laboratory diagnosis, the biological characteristics of the organism, mechanisms and routes of transmission, pathogenesis and immunity, host response, and finally prevention, control and treatment. Emerging molecular methods are vast for future efforts. Traditional case control and cohort studies will be needed to define the action of such pathogens in disease causality.
