To treat coronary artery disease, we offer advanced coronary stenting and ballooning. Cardiologists at Harrison Medical Center first determine the appropriate treatment for coronary artery disease, using the latest medical guidelines. If stenting isn’t an option, patients may be referred on to open heart surgery. To treat a heart attack, Harrison has partnered with EMS to open the blocked artery as quickly as possible. Studies show that restoring blood flow to a blocked coronary artery within 90 minutes reduces damage to the heart muscle. Harrison is recognized as one of the most consistent hospitals when adhering to these guidelines. Our cardiologists are able to open the blockage within 90 minutes on almost 100 percent of our patients.
For the treatment of heart arrhythmias, Harrison offers a variety of treatment options from electrical shock cardioversions to ablations or burning of the tissue that is causing the abnormal heart beat. Treatments may be performed in the Electrophysiology Lab or by using surgical MAZE procedures offered by our cardiothoracic surgeons.
Our heart failure specialists will look at the disease process and provide you with the best options for treatment. Harrison has been recognized for providing outstanding care for patients with heart failure.
