Noninvasive procedures that we commonly perform include exams to check the function of your heart and blood vessels. These may include things like stress tests, vascular ultrasound, echocardiography and electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG).
Our team also has expertise in pacemaker checks, which is an important part of your ongoing care if you have a heart rhythm disorder.
Invasive and cardiovascular procedures can also be done in our cath lab. This includes emergency procedures like heart attack treatment, which can be performed within minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Emergencies aren't the only reason for heart surgery or other invasive cardiovascular procedures. We also do planned surgeries to place stents or pacemakers. Our doctors can perform procedures to help treat varicose veins.
