Interventional Services

 

When it comes to a heart attack, a quick response and the use of proven treatment methods can result in better outcomes for patients. Maury Regional Medical Center is an accredited chest pain center and has demonstrated its expertise and commitment to quality patient care by meeting or exceeding stringent treatment criteria of the American College of Cardiology.

The cardiac catheterization laboratory allows the experienced cardiologists on our medical staff to investigate heart conditions with amazing accuracy.  The physicians have the expertise to treat heart conditions and perform interventional procedures—such as angioplasty and stenting—to prevent heart attacks and are assisted by our highly trained nursing and radiologic staff.

Internal cardiac defibrillator and pacemaker procedures are performed when patients need assistance controlling their heart rate or rhythm. Performing these procedures in the catheterization laboratory eliminates the need for an operating room and expedites recovery time.

In addition, numerous peripheral vascular procedures can be performed to treat blockages in blood vessels outside of the heart.
