Services We Offer
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, also called Coronary Angioplasty, Using Stents or a Catheter With a Balloon at Its Tip.
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) is a non-surgical procedure used to widen coronary arteries that have been blocked or narrowed. The procedure involves the use of a catheter to place a stent in the heart, opening the blood vessels and improving blood flow. PCI may be used for the relief of coronary heart disease symptoms or to reduce damage to the heart before or after a heart attack.
Thrombolytic Medication Given Through the Veins to Dissolve Blood Clots.
Thrombolysis is a treatment used to dissolve clots that develop in the blood vessels and improve blood flow throughout the body. Thrombolytic Medications are sometimes given through an intravenous line (IV) to ensure distribution directly to the affected area.
Aortic Aneurysm Repair
The traditional and most common type of surgery for aortic aneurysms is open chest repair. It involves a major incision in the chest. General anesthesia is needed with this procedure. The aneurysm is removed and the section of aorta is replaced with an artificial graft made of material such as Dacron® or Teflon®. The surgery takes 3 to 6 hours, and the patient remains in the hospital for 5 to 8 days. It often takes a month to recover from open chest surgery and return to full activity.
A specially designed catheter with a tiny balloon is carefully guided through the artery to the blockage, then inflated to widen the opening and increase blood flow to the heart. A stent is often placed during the procedure, to keep the artery open after the balloon is deflated and removed.
A valvuloplasty, also known as balloon valvuloplasty or balloon valvotomy, is a procedure to repair a heart valve that has a narrowed opening. In a narrowed heart valve, the valve flaps (leaflets) may become thick or stiff and fuse together (stenosis). This reduces blood flow through the valve.
Bioprosthetic Valve Replacement
Bioprosthetic heart valves are most commonly either made of bovine (cow) or porcine (pig) tissue. Of course the main advantage of a bioprosthetic valve is that there is not typically the need for life long blood thinning medication and therefore a significantly lower risk of bleeding.
Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
Coronary artery bypass surgery is a treatment for coronary artery disease (blocking or narrowing of the arteries that carry blood an oxygen to the heart). The procedure takes healthy blood vessels from elsewhere in the body, often the leg, and grafts them above and below the blockages to redirect blood around the blockage and restore blood flow to the heart.
Heart Valve Repair or Replacement
Heart valve repair can usually be done on congenital valve defects (defects you are born with) and has a good success record with treating mitral valve defects. Severe valve damage means the valve must be replaced and most often involves the aortic or mitral valve. It is also used to treat any valve disease that is life-threatening. Some patients may need more than one valve repaired or replaced.
Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD)
A left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is a pump that is used for patients who have reached end-stage heart failure. The LVAD, a battery-operated, mechanical pump, is surgically implanted, which then helps the left ventricle) pump blood to the rest of the body.
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery
A significantly less invasive procedure than traditional open-heart surgery, Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery involves one or more small incisions, which are usually made on the right side of the chest between the ribs to access the heart. This procedure often results in less pain and faster recovery for the patient.
Peripheral stents are often implanted in conjunction with balloon angioplasty. Peripheral stent implants help hold open an artery so that blood can flow through the blocked or clogged artery., The stent—a small, lattice-shaped wire mesh tube, props open the artery and remains permanently in place.
Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR)
A minimally invasive procedure for patients with mitral valve regurgitation (a condition where the mitral valve is not functioning properly). Unlike traditional open-heart surgery, TMVR does not require surgical opening of the chest. Instead, a catheter is inserted into a vein in the groin and up to the heart. The catheter is used to implant a small device that tightens the mitral valve to reduce the effects of mitral regurgitation.
The surgical removal of a body part such as a limb, hand, foot, finger, or toe. An amputation can be a life-altering experience, forcing the patient to relearn how to move and interact with their environment without a part of their body. An amputation may be caused by a traumatic accident (known as a traumatic amputation) or by disease, destruction, or infection of bodily tissue (known as surgical amputation).
Cardiopulmonary dysfunction refers to a range of (often serious) conditions that affect the heart and the lungs, such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Treatments may range from lifestyle changes to medication to surgery, depending on the individual case.
Chronic pain is persistent, ongoing pain that lasts for more than six months, such as migraines, back pain, nerve pain, arthritis, and cancer. Chronic pain affects daily life; does not generally have a clear, present underlying cause; and often leads to fatigue, changes in appetite, and mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, and anger.
Injury treatment may include rest, medication, physical therapy, and/or surgery, depending on the severity and location of the injury. While simple sprains can be resolved with the “RICE” treatment (rest, ice, compression, elevation), it's important to receive a full assessment of sports injuries to ensure the treatment plan aligns with the injury and does not miss underlying causes.
Neuromuscular or Other Neurological Disorders
Neuromuscular disorders cause problems with the muscles, the nerves that control them, and communication between the two (e.g., neuropathy, muscular dystrophy). Neurological disorders are issues with the brain, spinal cord, and nerves (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, stroke, migraines, epilepsy).
Performance enhancement physical therapy works toward injury prevention, recovery, and overall fitness. Performance enhancement training starts with a thorough assessment of an individual’s biomechanics and functional/musculoskeletal imbalances and works to improve balance, proprioception, and coordination as well as strength, power, and flexibility.
Post Cerebrovascular Accidents
A cerebrovascular accident (CVA, or stroke) can cause other conditions that require treatment and/or rehabilitation, including the disruption or loss of speech, vision, memory, and motor skills. The severity of the CVA and how quickly it was treated will affect the duration and intensity of necessary rehabilitation, such as with occupational and speech therapists.
Rehabilitation and therapy services include inpatient and outpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology services. These services are provided to people who are recovering from an injury or illness or have a chronic health condition or disability.
Post Orthopedic Surgery
Post orthopedic surgery recovery varies by procedure, but all require rehabilitation. This involves cleaning and care of any incisions, carefully following the doctor’s instructions on introducing and increasing movement (for joint replacements, in particular, this is ASAP), and, often, completing physical therapy.
