Heart Catheterization/Angioplasty and Stenting

Our heart catheterization lab offers diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions with nonoperative techniques, such as angioplasty and stenting. Angioplasty can stop heart attacks as they are happening by immediately restoring blood flow to the heart. This treatment is known to prevent heart damage and permit you to return to your usual activities sooner.

Balloon angioplasty involves the opening of a blocked coronary artery with a tiny balloon. Along with this procedure, cardiologists may insert small wire tubes called stents into the affected arteries to keep them open.
