Heart Treatment Options


Find a heart doctor near you

There are three main types of treatment for heart disease: non-invasive, minimally invasive and surgical.

  • Non-invasive treatments typically include medication, diet and exercise.
  • Minimally-invasive procedures can require catheterization, during which a physician enters the heart through arteries in the legs or arms. Once in the heart, they use special tools to inject dye, clear blocked arteries or insert a stent (small stainless steel tube) when needed.
  • 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.
