The Rockwood Heart and Vascular Center team
identifies, diagnoses and treats heart diseases and cardiovascular
problems. Using diagnostic tools such as EKG's (electrocardiograms)
and exercise treadmill stress tests, our cardiologists are able to
identify disorders of the heart and blood vessels.
Echocardiograms show the heart's size and how well it functions.
Ultrasound studies evaluate the blood flow in the legs, and cardiac
catherization shows whether there is narrowing of the arteries in
the heart. Therapeutic procedures to restore the blood flow in the
arteries include angioplasty (mechanical widening of the blood
vessel), atherectomy (removing plaque from the artery), and placing
a stent or a balloon inflation in the artery.
Other procedures include implanting pacemakers to improve the
heart function and defibrillators to normalize heart rhythms. Our
cardiologists specialize in peripheral vascular issues, congestive
heart failure, interventional cardiology, nuclear cardiology and
