Heart Disease Treatments & Procedures

Trust Adventist Health Simi Valley for effective treatments and procedures

When you have heart disease, getting the right treatment quickly is vitally important to increase your chances of survival and spare your heart muscle. Depending on the severity, heart disease is commonly treated using the following methods:

  • Noninvasive: Usually involves medication and lifestyle modifications, including diet and exercise
  • Minimally invasive: Includes catheterization, during which a cardiologist enters the heart through arteries in the legs or arms using only a small incision
  • Surgical: Requires opening the chest to repair damaged heart tissue, valves, vessels or arteries

Heart Care services at Adventist Health Simi Valley offers many of these types of treatments for heart patients, including:

  • Cardiac catheterization​: Includes angioplasty, stent placement, pacemaker and cardiac defibrillator implantation.
  • Vascular and neurovascular procedures: Includes carotid stenting, aneurysm repair, etc.
