Interventional cardiology

Adventist Health White Memorial's catheterization labs offer nonsurgical methods to treat heart conditions. Our four state-of-the-art procedure rooms offer diagnostic and interventional services. We can diagnose and treat:

Coronary artery disease

  • Diagnosis of coronary artery disease with angioplasty — the insertion of a small tube into the heart through the arteries in the arm or groin
  • Intravascular ultrasound, a diagnostic imaging procedure that takes place within the arteries of the heart

Coronary artery disease

  • Angioplasty, the dilatation of the artery using a balloon catheter
  • Stent implantation (bare metal and drug eluding)

Heart arrhythmia

  • Electrophysiology studies — the placement of electrodes within the heart to study its electrical function
  • Cardioversion — the stimulation of the heart to beat normally using electrical current
  • Radiofrequency ablation — destruction of areas of the heart that are causing arrhythmias
  • Pacemaker implantation — the insertion of a device to regulate the heartbeat
  • Automatic implantation cardioverter defibrillator (AICD)

Peripheral artery disease

  • Diagnosis and percutaneous treatment of peripheral arteries
