Interventional cardiology uses varying procedures to treat the heart before surgical intervention may become necessary. We use state-of-the-heart techniques that range from Angioplasty to PFO closures so that we can treat heart problems in the best possible way. Our preventative care may help to diagnose heart problems long before they become symptomatic. However, in the event that intervention or surgery is required, you can feel confident in the knowledge that our facilities, physicians and equipment are among the best in the area.
Interventional cardiology procedures are performed in our Cardiac Cath Lab, a specialty area dedicated to performing interventional procedures. One of the most comforting aspects of the Cath Lab is its convenience. When you enter the Lab, you will sign in, undergo and recover from your procedure all in the same area, making your stay as seamless as possible.
The Cardiac Cath Lab includes:
- Five Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories
- Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory
- Peripheral Vascular Laboratory
- 16-bed Cath Lab recovery room
The SVMC Cardiac Cath Lab measures its outcomes using the standards developed by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, The American College of Cardiology (ACC/NCDR), and The National Registry for Acute Myocardial Infarction.
