Tests & Treatments

  • Balloon Angioplasty with Stenting
    A nonsurgical procedure that is used to "open up" or dilate an obstructed artery that leads to the heart.

  • Carotid Endarterectomy
    Our surgeons perform carotid endarterectomy to open blockages and remove plaque from the carotid arteries to treat and prevent stroke.

  • ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation)
    Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation provides prolonged respiratory and cardiac support to patients whose lungs and heart are so severely diseased or damaged that they cannot normally function on their own.

  • Pacemaker Insertion
    If your heart is beating too slowly or if you have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, you may need to have a pacemaker implanted.

  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
    Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment of tumors of the liver, kidney, bone and lung; Barrett's esophagus; varicose veins; various pain conditions; and a wide variety of disorders where the heart beats too fast or sometimes irregularly, called cardiac arrhythmia.

  • Robotic Mitral Valve Repair
    If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with stenosis or regurgitation of the mitral valve, you will require surgery to repair the problem.
