Cardiac Catheterization Labs
Here, our experienced electrophysiologists and interventional cardiologists
perform advanced diagnostic and therapeutic procedures by threading a
catheter through an artery to the heart. This minimally-invasive approach
allows innovative solutions to some of today’s common cardiac conditions,
such as the placement of a miniaturized, leadless pacemaker to treat atrial
We offer one of the state’s most sophisticated surgical settings,
including a “hybrid” cardiovascular suite. This cutting-edge
suite combines the diagnostic power of 4D imaging with both minimally-invasive
interventional procedures and traditional open-surgery techniques in the
same procedure. The all-in-one, diagnosis-to-treatment suite incorporates
numerous imaging modalities, from dynamic CT imaging to a biplane digital
angiography system, while allowing successful treatment of complex or
formerly inoperable conditions.
This effective multi-phase
cardiac rehabilitation program offers a carefully designed blend of exericse therapy, education and support
to help you recover faster, reduce your future risk, and give you more
energy to do the things you love. Our multidisciplinary rehabilitation
team includes cardiologists, advance-practice cardiac nurses, exercise
