Heart Treatment Options
McKee offers several non-invasive treatments for heart disease. For each treatment there are several different approaches. It is best to speak with your doctor to determine what specific treatments you need.
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. McKee offers many cardiac catheterization procedures. The following are frequently performed at this hospital.
- Angioplasty (balloon pump)
- Stent Implantation
