Interventional Cardiology

Minimally invasive techniques to treat heart disease

In some cases, heart disease can be treated using minimally invasive interventional cardiology techniques that use a catheter (thin, flexible tube) inserted into the arteries. The catheter is guided to the heart to open blocked arteries and improve blood flow. These advanced techniques are performed on an outpatient basis and offer a non-surgical alternative to treat many heart conditions.

Riverview Regional Medical Center’s board-certified interventional cardiologists use a variety of advanced catheter-assisted techniques to treat heart disease, including:

  • Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization
  • Balloon Angioplasty
  • Stent Placement
  • Coronary Athrectomy
  • Pacemaker/Defibrillator Implantation
