Services we offer:
Cardioversion is a medical procedure done to restore a normal heart rhythm for people who have certain types of abnormal heartbeats (arrhythmias).
Cardiac ablation works by scarring or destroying tissue in your heart that triggers an abnormal heart rhythm. Ablation prevents abnormal electrical signals from traveling through your heart and, thus, stops the arrhythmia.
CT coronary angiogram:
A computerized tomography (CT) coronary angiogram is an imaging test that looks at the arteries that supply your heart with blood. Unlike traditional coronary angiograms, CT angiograms don’t use a catheter threaded through your blood vessels to your heart.
Carotid angioplasty & stents:
This is a procedure that opens clogged arteries to treat strokes. The carotids are the main arteries supplying blood to your brain. The procedure involves temporarily inserting and inflating a tiny balloon where your carotid artery is clogged to widen the artery.
During cardiac catheterization, a long thin tube called a catheter is inserted in an artery or vein in your groin, neck or arm and threaded through your blood vessels to your heart.
