Banner Estrella offers several surgical and non-invasive treatments for heart disease. Please speak with your doctor to determine what specific treatments are needed.

Catheterization Procedures
A catheterization procedure is a minimally-invasive way to treat some forms of heart disease. Doctors do not surgically open the patient’s chest. They enter the heart through arteries in the legs or arms. Then they use special tools to inject dye, clear blocked arteries, or insert a stent (small stainless steel tube) when needed.

Banner Estrella Medical Center offers a specialized Interventional Cardiology suite in its Surgical unit. The following cardiac procedures are frequently performed at this hospital.

Surgical procedures require the patient to stay in the hospital for a few days. A surgeon opens the patient’s chest to repair damage to the heart tissue, valves, arteries or vessels. Some times the patient’s heart is temporarily stopped from beating on its own. In that case a mechanical pump or heart-lung machine keeps the heart functioning while the doctor performs surgery.

Banner Estrella medical staff performs several cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgeries including: .
