If you need to stay in the hospital, our coordinated, streamlined admissions process means your care moves rapidly and smoothly.

Our cardiac emergency physicians are skilled in performing all types of procedures, including:

Angioplasty and stents

In this minimally invasive procedure, we thread a thin tube (catheter) through a blood vessel into the aorta, your heart’s main artery. The tube has a tiny balloon on the end, which inflates to widen your artery and restore blood flow. We may also implant a permanent stent to prop the artery open and reduce your risk of another blockage.

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)

This procedure improves blood flow to the heart. We take blood vessels from another part of the body and connect them to blood vessels surrounding the blocked artery, creating a channel for blood to flow through.
