Welcome to Our Multi–Specialist 24/7 Cardiovascular Facility
LECC is a multidisciplinary cardiovascular and cardiac rehabilitation 24/7 facility focused on the treatment and management of cardiovascular diseases and trigger diseases using both invasive and non-invasive procedures, as well as preventive cardiology.
Our skilled and experienced cardiologists, vascular and cardiothoracic surgeons, electrophysiologists, interventional cardiologists and support staff are committed to the treatment and prevention of heart diseases through innovative, state-of-the-art technology.
Furthermore, it is nearly impossible to treat heart conditions and/or trigger factors such as diabetes without screening, treating, and managing other areas of the body that are connected to the heart.
Consequently, our support staff have a wealth of expertise in several branches of related cardiovascular medicine such as stroke care, vascular surgery, obstructive sleep apnea, endocrinology and diabetology, pulmonary and respiratory medicine, in order to provide high quality, individualised care for patients in one place.
We are dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of care we provide while maintaining a high level of quality and compliance with the latest standards.
LECC is Nigeria’s first heart centre to offer 24/7 cardiology coverage. Our trained primary care physicians/GPs are also available 24/7. Our Adult and Interventional Paediatric Cardiologists provide consultation to the hospitalists, perform diagnostic testing and services, perform cardioversions, and place temporary and permanent pacemakers.
LECC was established in 2016 by Dr. Folasade Alli, a consultant cardiologist with over 30 years of experience and Ms. Lola Alli, a health economist; and commenced its operations in 2017 as a provider of integrated cardiovascular healthcare services.
We have a strong network of experienced specialists in the following branches of cardiovascular related medical sciences:
GP and Family Medicine
Our General Practitioners adopt a holistic, integrated approach by addressing all types of patients. They are usually the first point of contact before patients are referred, if required.
Our cardiovascular team specialises in disorders of the heart including the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, heart failure, coronary disease and more.
This team provides medical and surgical treatment to children with congenital and acquired heart disease from birth until adolescence when they are transferred to the Grown Up Heart Unit.
Our Interventional Cardiologist treats damaged vessels, weakened heart valves and narrowed arteries which can be caused by various types of heart disease.
Our Cardiothoraxic Surgeon assists our physicians in optimising patient outcomes when the need arises.
Stroke Specialist Clinic
This comprises the cardiovascular team, nutritional, neurology, neurosurgery and physiotherapy team in providing optimal stroke care.
Our Vascular and Endovascular team are trained to treat diseases of the vascular system. They diagnose and manage such diseases including DVT and Peripheral arterial disease.
As part of our comprehensive cardiac care, LECC provides outpatient therapy and rehabilitation to our cardiology patients. Wellness, Fitness and Cardiac Rehabilitation helps our patients get back on the path to long-term recovery.
Sleep Specialist Clinic
Due to the correlation between hypertention and sleep disorders, LECC’s Canadian Sleep Experts help diagnose & treat a range of sleep disorders. This is also open to non–cardiovascular patients.
Adult & Paediatric Intensive Care Unit
Our Adult and Paediatric ICU team include nurses, medical officers, 2 intensivists, physiotherapists, and other specialists to care for patients that are critically ill and in need of a ventilator.
Our NICU is an intensive care unit specialising in the care of ill or premature newborn infants. Neonatal refers to the first 28 days of life. Some babies are born with heart defects and require special care which we offer.
Asthma & Chest Medicine
Understanding asthma, how it is diagnosed and treated, and how to live with the disease will increase your ability to best manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life; especially if you have cardiac issues.
Endocrinology & Diabetology
The presence of either diabetes or hypertension increases the risk of having the other. Our Endocrinologist runs her clinic twice a week. She evaluates, diagnoses and treats hormone problems and the complications that arise from them to improve and maintain patients health.
Diet & Nutrition
Many of our patients require special dietary programmes to help reach their goal. This is especially the case for both hypertensive and diabetic patients. Our nutritionists are available once a week to help them achieve their overall goal, and live healthier lives.
Drug therapy, Heart Failure Device Therapy, Cardiac and Vascular Programme, Behavioural Stress Relief Medication, and Nutritional Counselling
Majority of older men require both urologists and cardiovascular specialist to manage their comorbidites. Our urologist consults on Fridays and Saturdays.
