Treatments and procedures for heart disease

Specialists at Lakewood Regional Medical Center are ready to develop a personalized treatment and rehabilitation plan for your heart disease or condition to get you on the road to recovery. Among the most common heart treatments and procedures that we may see:

Angioplasty

An angioplasty is a procedure that uses a balloon to widen narrowed arteries.

Artificial heart valve surgery

Artificial heart valve surgery involves replacing an abnormal or diseased heart valve with an artificial one.

Atherectomy

An atherectomy is a procedure in which excess plaque is cut from an artery using a rotating shaver.

Bypass surgery

Bypass surgery involves creating alternative paths for blood flow to the heart using arteries and veins from other parts of the body.

Minimally invasive heart surgery

Minimally invasive heart surgery is performed through small incisions as an alternative to open heart surgery.

Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure in which an electrode is used to burn small amounts of heart muscle. This treats excessively rapid and irregular beating.

Stent procedure

A stent procedure involves installing a wire mesh tube into a narrowed coronary artery to keep it open. It is often used in conjunction with an angioplasty procedure.
