Cardiac Catheterization Lab

Your Partners in Care

Let our team of skilled physicians improve your quality of life by providing you with stellar interventions for coronary artery disease and heart failure.

Treatments

Diagnostic heart catheterization

A diagnostic test where a long thin tube called a catheter is inserted in an artery, usually arm or groin, to diagnose and/or treat heart conditions such as coronary artery blockages, measure pumping function, diagnose heart defects, and look for valve problems.

Percutaneous coronary intervention

Using cardiac catheterization, the interventional cardiologist opens up a blocked coronary artery to allow blood to flow through. This is also known as coronary angioplasty.

Robotic percutaneous coronary intervention

A new tool using the CorPath platform. It is a system designed to improve the quality and accuracy of coronary angioplasty.

Intra-aortic balloon pump

A thin inflatable tube that is connected to a balloon used to control blood flow going through a large blood vessel called the aorta. The balloon deflates when your heart pumps and allows blood flow to your body. It then inflates when your heart relaxes allowing the heart to keep more blood in it.

Percutaneous left ventricular assist device (Impella)

This device is implanted to mimic the job of a heart, meaning it will help the heart pump efficiently for oxygenated blood to circulate throughout the body. It is usually used by patients that are recovering from a heart attack or cardiac surgery, for a small period of time, and for patients that have been diagnosed with advanced heart failure for a longer period of time.
