Cardiovascular Conditions We Treat

Our experienced cardiologists and cardiovascular specialists have extensive experience in treating a variety of heart and vascular conditions.

Emergency Chest Pain And Heart Attack Care

Heart attack is the number one cause of death in America, with more than 600,000 people dying each year from heart disease. Our emergency room is equipped to quickly diagnose and treat chest pain in patients suffering from heart disease.

We are an Urgent Care Center, and Our mission is to provide emergency cardiac medicine for our community. Our emergency cardiac team consists of cardiologists, nurses, doctors, and technicians who collaborate to create a comprehensive management plan that addresses chest pain.

Recognizing Heart Attack Symptoms Early

Our cardiac program is dedicated to providing Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC) and promoting it. We want to educate our community about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack. These signs and symptoms may appear days or even weeks before the actual event. To avoid a heart attack, it is important to recognize and treat these early symptoms.

Chest pain is a sign of a heart attack. It can be mild or sporadic at first. These warnings are often ignored and can lead to serious damage to the heart muscle or even death.

Heart Failure Care

Heart failure is usually irreversible. This chronic condition can be managed and treated. Our heart failure patients are treated with medication to manage their symptoms and allow them to live happy healthy lives.

Heart Screenings And Diagnostics

Our new, state-of-the-art biplane suite is home to advanced technology that our cardiologists use. Our cardiovascular specialists can diagnose and treat many disorders, including those of the brain, heart, and blood vessels, thanks to these new capabilities and imaging services.

An echocardiogram gives your doctor information about the health of your heart. These images show clear images of the walls, chambers, and size of your heart. To provide the highest quality imaging, our clinical staff is certified in the specialty.

Transesophageal Echocardiograms

When your doctor wants to have a better look at the inside of your stomach, transesophageal echocardiograms are performed. These images can provide information to your doctor about diagnosing and treating any infections or problems within your heart’s walls or chambers.

Electrocardiography

A 12-lead EKG is available to record your heart’s electrical activity. This record gives your doctor information about any possible issues with your heart’s electric system. Sometimes, a doctor may request more than a 12-lead EKG and may recommend a Holter monitor or event monitor to be worn for longer periods.

Stress Tests

Your doctor can perform stress tests to determine how your heart reacts to exercise. The test could involve using a treadmill or medication to speed up your heart rate. An echocardiogram may be used in conjunction with stress tests.

Minimally Invasive Cardiovascular Procedures

To treat patients suffering from heart or vascular problems, we use the most effective and minimally invasive treatment. Our cardiologists can view extremely detailed images of the anatomy of patients during minimally invasive procedures. The balloon pump is also available to improve the support of your heart.

We offer a variety of minimally invasive or interventional procedures.

Our cardiac laboratory offers the most advanced technology and equipment. A dedicated cardiac nurse navigator is available to assist you in your journey of cardiac care.

Cardiac catheterization allows your doctor to examine your heart and arteries. It also helps determine how efficient your heart pumping is. A blockage in the arteries that supply oxygen to your heart can be caused by coronary artery disease. A blockage of one of these arteries can cause a heart attack. If treated promptly, cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, and stent placing can reduce the risk of permanent muscle damage.

Angiography

Catheter angiography is the process of inserting dye into a narrowed blood vessel by placing a catheter in an artery or vein through your groin. After that, the restricted area can be widened using angioplasty or medication. A stent is placed to keep the vessel open.

Angioplasty and Atherectomy

Atherectomy and angioplasty can both be done simultaneously with cardiac catheterization. A balloon catheter is used to open a blocked coronary artery. A catheter is used to remove plaque from an artery’s wall.

Fractional Flow Reserve

The fractional flow reserve (FFR) is used by doctors to determine if there are any blockages to oxygen flow to the heart muscle.

Intravascular Ultrasound

IVUS is used to provide more information about blockages within the vessel. The physician can view the inside walls of the coronary vessels with an ultrasound probe attached to a catheter.

Device Implantations

Our electrophysiologists can perform pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) using minimally invasive outpatient procedures. We have the following pacemakers and devices:

  • Heart Failure System -A small pressure-sensing unit that is inserted directly into the pulmonary vein. It transmits information wirelessly from your doctor.
  • Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (ICD)–A device implanted in patients at risk for sudden cardiac death. The ICD is slightly bigger than a pacemaker, and it monitors the heart for abnormal beats. If the ICD senses that the heartbeat is irregular, it can send an internal shock directly to the heart muscle.
  • – A small device that is inserted or injected under the skin of the chest. It can record arrhythmias for up to three years.
  • Pacemaker — A device that regulates heartbeat by sending an electrical impulse through electrodes attached to the heart muscle. This allows for quick recovery.

Pericardiocentesis

Pericardiocentesis can be used to examine fluid around the heart. It involves strict sterilization with a needle being inserted into the pericardial sac.

Stent Placements

Stents are tiny tubes of metal that are placed in the coronary vessels. They have been shown to reduce the likelihood of your blockage recurring. To open a blocked coronary artery, stents are placed into a balloon catheter.

We accept all major insurances…
