Areas of Specialty

 

 

Advanced Heart Failure

Heart failure denotes a heart that becomes weak and is unable to pump blood as well as it is meant to.  This can cause problems with kidneys and edema, as well as heart congestion.  Late-stage heart failure has advanced symptoms that persist despite treatment.  Treatments can include medication, dietary changes, and sometimes surgery.

 

 

 

Cardiac Catheterization

This is a diagnostic procedure.  This procedure helps doctors diagnose heart conditions such as coronary artery disease, defective heart valves, or congenital heart defects (defects you are born with).  Cardiac Catheterization also provides important information about the heart's pumping function.

 

 

 

Coronary Angioplasty/Stent

This is a non-surgical treatment designed to open clogged arteries.  This procedure is done after the doctor has seen the angiogram (picture) that shows where the arteries are blocked.  Angioplasty, with or without stenting, opens the arteries to restore blood flow.

 

 

 

Echocardiogram

This examination is an ultrasound study of the heart.  This exam is to evaluate the function, size, valvular structures and overall view of the heart.

 

 

 

Pacemaker

Pacemakers are usually implanted just under the skin in the upper chest area and under local anesthetic.  This means you will be awake when the pacemaker is implanted.  You may be given some medicine intravenously to help you relax, but you will be aware of what is going on around you.

 

 

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

Biventricular pacing uses a special kind of pacemaker or defibrillator and is designed to treat the delay in heart ventricle contractions.Like a pacemaker, the implanted device is just below the skin in the upper chest area and under local anestheitic.

 

Nuclear Cardiology

Perfusion study involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials. The level of radioactivity used is extremely low and has essentially no side effects.  You will be positioned next to a special detector called a gamma camera.  The camera does not produce radiation.  This camera will revolve around your chest and obtain images of your heart.

 

 

 

24 Hour Holter Monitor

This study records your heart activity for 24 Hour periods.  You will be required to wear a digital recorder with wires and electrodes attached to your chest.  The monitor records your heart activity for any irregularities.

 

 

 

Stress Testing

This study involves exercising on a treadmill until your heart rate reaches a certain level.  This is in order to assess the function of your heart both at rest and stress using information obtained from an EKG.

 

 

 

Vascular Extremity Evaluation

A detailed physical exam, along with ultrasound, and if needed, either conventional angiogram or CT angiogram of lower extremities to evaluate peripheral arterial disease and venous disease.

 

 

 

Angioplasty / Stenting / Limb Salvage

Placement of stents on the arteries of the heart for arterial obstruction and the arteries of the legs to avoid amputationo.

 

 

 

Carotid Doppler Ultrasound / Angioplasty / Stent

 

Ultrasound evaluation of the arteries of the neck to detect blockage that can lead to stroke.
