Local cardiologists are skilled at inserting stents to repair weak or narrowing coronary arteries or clear fatty build-up.
Our cardiologists will assess your medical history and inspect your arteries using X-ray imaging. Based on the results, we may recommend a minimally invasive procedure where we insert a catheter into your groin, thread it through to the blockage and inflate a balloon to squash the fatty deposit. We then will insert a stent, or tube, into your artery to keep it open and to enable blood flow.
