The Heart Center performs angioplasty, a life-saving procedure that is the fastest method of opening blocked arteries in patients suffering from a heart attack. We consistently perform this life-saving procedure within 90 minutes or less of when a patient first enters our emergency department--well above the national average.

Types of angioplasty performed 

  • Primary angioplasty
  • Coronary angiography
  • Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (balloon angioplasty/stent)
  • Right and left heart catheterization
  • Intravascular Ultrasound
  • Pericardiocentesis
