Services

Diagnostic cardiac catheterization

The process of introducing catheters into veins or arteries, then into either the left or right side of the heart.

Diagnostic peripheral angiography

A test that uses X-rays and dye to find narrowed or blocked areas in the arteries that supply blood to your legs.

Interventional services

This is a branch of cardiology that focuses on catheter-based treatment of structural heart diseases.

Angioplasty/stent

This opens the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart. A stent is a tube that expands inside the coronary artery.

Atherectomy

This surgery treatment uses a catheter with a sharp blade to remove plaques of fatty material from blood vessels.

PFO and ASD closures

A catheter-based closure of the patient foramen ovale (PFO) and atrial septal defect (ASD) heart defects.

Retrievable IVC filters

These are small, cage-like devices inserted into the inferior vena cava in order to capture blood clots.

Electrophysiology services

A specialty branch of physiology concerned with the study, diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders.

Ablation

A procedure used to scar or destroy a small area of tissue in the heart that is causing abnormal rhythm.

Echocardiography

Ultrasound waves are used to examine the functionality of the heart and diagnose heart diseases and disorders.

Stress echocardiography

A procedure measuring heartbeat and blood pressure while exercising to determine the health of the heart and blood vessels.

TEE

Transesophageal echocardiography is a test used to produce ultrasonic imaging of the heart to better diagnose disorders.

Holter Monitor and event recording

A small battery operated device that is used to record the heart’s activity for those who have irregular cardiac symptoms.

Pacemaker programming

Your doctor will determine if demand pacing or rate-responsive pacing is a better fit for your needs.

O2 Treadmill

An exercise test on the treadmill is a way to test the effect of exercise on your heart and your ability to breathe.

Vascular ultrasound

Ultrasound test that examines blood vessel circulation in the body to identify blood clots and artery blockage.

Venous ablations

Treatment using laser energy to close varicose veins in the legs. It leaves no scars and relieves aches and pains.

Nuclear diagnostic imaging

Radioactive tracers are used to detect radiation the body. Digital images are generated and used to make a diagnosis.

Cardiovascular perfusion

Circulation equipment provides support to a patient’s circulatory or respiratory functions in certain heart procedures.

Bone scan

A scan that screens for damage in the bones, the spread of cancer and potential bone infections and trauma.

HIDA scan

A hepatobiliary scan captures images of the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts to help diagnose medical conditions.

Cardiac MRI

A simple imaging procedure using radio waves and magnets to capture detailed pictures of the heart and blood vessels.

CT Coronary Calcium Score

A heart scan that calculates your risk of developing coronary artery disease, a common heart condition.

In-office lab services for cholesterol and anti -coagulation

Lab tests look at the blood’s ability and time it takes to clot, along with lipid levels related to cholesterol.

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring

A non-invasive method of obtaining blood pressure readings while the patient is in their own environment.

Ankle-brachial index testing

This is the ratio of the blood pressure at the ankle to the blood pressure in the upper arm (brachium).

Pacemaker lead extraction

The lead will be extracted either through the femoral or subclavian vein. Scar tissue and leads are then removed.

Peripheral angioplasty

The blocked area of the peripheral artery is removed through an inflated balloon within a catheter.

Pacemaker implantation

A generator is placed on the left side of the chest, attached to a wire guided through a blood vessel to the heart.

ICD-defibrillator implantation

This is a pager-sized device placed into the heart ventricles to help your heart keep beating effectively.

Biventricular pacemaker implantation

This specialized pacemaker is implanted and the lead tip attaches to the heart, helping heart failure patients.

Laser lead extraction

Special catheter-guided lasers are new technology that helps free the lead from the surrounding scar tissue.

Tilt table testing

Patients lie on a table that is slowly tilted upward, used to measure blood pressure, heart rate and gravity’s effects.

Varicose vein surgery

Surgical removal or obliteration of varicose veins to reduce their appearance and minimize pain and aching.

Peripheral ultrasound

A water-based gel is applied to your legs, and an ultrasound probe is used to scan the arteries in your legs.

Emergency inpatient coverage

Admission to the hospital with a doctor’s order based on need of emergent, time-sensitive services.
