Interventional Cardiology

Center for Heart Health

Recognized for Excellence 

Depend upon our reputation as a regional leader in state-of-the-art minimally invasive cardiac and endovascular interventions like cardiac catheterizations and cardiac angioplasty.

Rely on our experienced Cardiovascular Interventional Suite team for the highest-quality preventive, medical management, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular conditions, diseases and disorders.

Our professional, caring multi-disciplinary team of experienced physicians, nurses, specialists and technologists are available around-the-clock. They use the latest technology and clinical techniques to bring you the best in cardiac and peripheral procedures.

Diagnostic Cardiology

Cardiac Catheterization

Using X-rays in combination with contrast dye to evaluate your coronary arteries for blockages or narrowing.

Intravascular Ultrasound

A test that uses sound waves to see inside blood vessels.

Fractional Flow Reserve

A technique used in coronary catheterization to accurately measure blood pressure and flow through a specific part of the coronary artery.

Coronary Intervention

Cardiac Angioplasty/Atherectomy

Placing a small balloon on the tip of a catheter inserted into a coronary artery to open up an area of narrowing in a blood vessel.

Cardiac Stent Placement

Delivering a small mesh-like tube to a blockage in a coronary artery to assist in keeping the blockage from re-occurring. Our cardiologists offer options for drug-eluting and bare-metal stents, depending on a patient’s condition.


Inserting a small tube into the protective sac around the heart to remove excess accumulated fluid.

Electrophysiology (EP) Ablations

Helping to correct a heart arrhythmia through a catheter. Ablation cauterizes cells to eliminate heart rhythm abnormalities.

Intracardiac EP Studies

A technique that uses a catheter to assess the electrical activity of the heart.

Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) Ablations

Using ablation to treat heart rhythm disturbances that originate in the upper heart chambers, referred to as supraventricular tachycardia or SVT.

Device Implants

Cardio MEMs

A pulmonary artery pressure monitoring system helps you and your care team stay ahead of heart failure progression by taking readings of your pulmonary artery pressure remotely and sending them to your heart failure medical team through a secure website. The device is small and is inserted into your pulmonary artery. Watch video

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Implanting a special cardiac pacemaker to help synchronize your left and right heart ventricles to restore your heart’s proper mechanical sequence.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs)

Implanting a small electronic device in the upper chest to help manage life-threatening abnormal heart rhythms, like ventricular tachycardia.

Loop Recorder

An implantable loop recorder (ILR) is a single-lead electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring device.

Pacemaker Insertion (PPM)

Implanting a small electronic device in the upper chest to help regulate electrical problems of the heart.

Peripheral Interventions

Inferior Vena Cava Filter Placement/Removal

Implanting a medical device into the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) to prevent fatal pulmonary emboli (PEs). Surgeons can either insert a permanent IVC filter or a removable filter in an endovascular procedure, which means via the blood vessels.


Inserting a small tube into a dialysis fistula using contrast dye and an X-ray.


Inserting a hollow plastic tube, like an IV, into a blood vessel and then a catheter into an artery or vein, while using an X-ray and contrast dye, to visualize any narrowing or disease.


Opening up an area of blockage with the use of a small balloon on the tip of a catheter.

Stent Placement

Using a small, expandable coil to assist in opening up, and then keeping open, an area of a blood vessel that is blocked.

Peripheral Thrombolysis

Infusing clot-busting drugs into a blood vessel to break up and help dissolve blood clots.
