Our Areas Of Expertise
Interventional cardiology uses catheters to treat certain heart conditions. Catheterization is minimally invasive and can be used for a broad range of treatments, from diagnosing a heart issue to repairing a congenital defect. This includes precision angioplasty that uses 3D intravascular imaging to allow for precise placement of stents.
Cardiothoracic surgery includes various types of heart surgery, from conventional open-heart surgery to the newest, minimally invasive procedures.
Electrophysiology procedures help treat arrhythmias, or problems with the rhythm of the heartbeat. We’re a leader in accurately diagnosing your arrhythmia, and then recommending and performing the best treatment for your condition.
Our heart valve centers provide comprehensive care for screening, evaluating and treating heart valve disease. Our procedures include:
- Transcatheter Aortic-Valve Replacement (TAVR)
- Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR)
We offer a wide range of surgical and catheter-based options for treating vascular disease, including treatments for aortic abdominal aneurysm and carotid artery blockage.
We specialize in acquired and congenital heart conditions, as well as electrical disorders of the heart, in infants, children and adolescents. Our pediatric surgeons are experts in minimally invasive cardiac procedures.
Cardiovascular imaging refers to noninvasive imaging of the heart. We use the most advanced technology to quickly obtain detailed images of the heart, allowing us to detect and diagnose conditions earlier and more accurately.
Our services include:
- Cardiac CT—provides numerous detailed images of the heart and its blood vessels
- Cardiac MRI—provides high-resolution, high-definition images of the heart without using radiation
- Echocardiography—uses ultrasound, or sound waves, to produce images of the heart
- Nuclear Imaging—uses small amounts of radioactive substances to create images of the heart
