Echocardiogram

Echocardiogram is an imaging system that uses sound waves to take a picture of your heart. Cardiac specialists use echocardiograms to identify heart disease.

Stress Testing

A stress test is used to determine how your heart responds to stress, using either a treadmill or medication to exercise your heart.

Electrofisiología

Electrophysiology studies electrical activity and rhythm of the heart, including heart interventions such as pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators and cardiac ablation.

Peripheral and Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterizations is a procedure used to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease with the goal of improving blood flow to your heart to your heart or extremities.

Rehabilitación cardiaca

Cardiac rehabilitation is an exercise program used to help improve the health of your heart. Cardiac rehab is supervised by medical professionals in the hospital and outpatient setting.

Congestive Heart Failure Program

Our congestive heart failure program is dedicated to managing your heart care after discharge from the hospital through extensive education and medication management together with nursing support.

Open Heart Surgery

Open heart surgery is a type of heart surgery where the chest is cut open to fix damaged muscles, arteries or valves of the heart. Common examples of open heart surgery are coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG) and surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR).

Device Management

The device clinic manages and monitors the way your pacemaker or defibrillator functions, in addition to placing short-term cardiac monitors that look for abnormal heart beats.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) & Valve Clinic

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive procedure that replaces an aortic valve that does not function properly, called aortic stenosis. Traditionally, treating aortic stenosis has required open heart surgery. Significant advancements in cardiovascular medicine allow the TAVR procedure to be performed in a catheterization lab without open heart surgery and shorter recovery times.

We can treat the following heart conditions

  • Aneurisma aórtico abdominal (AAA)
  • Arritmia
  • Fibrilación auricular
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF)
  • Arteriosclerosis and Atherosclerosis—Arteriosclerosis occurs when the blood vessels become thick and stiff, which can restrict blood flow to your organs and tissues. Over time, this can lead to the hardening of the walls of your arteries. Atherosclerosis is a specific type of arteriosclerosis that refers to the buildup of fats, cholesterol and other substances within artery walls—commonly referred to as plaque—that can restrict blood flow. These plaques can burst, leading to a blood clot and heart attack. Both can be diagnosed by a heart catheterization.
  • Enfermedad vascular periférica
  • Enfermedad de la arteria coronaria
  • Ataque al corazón
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Valvular heart disease

  • TAVR procedure

    We are the ONLY hospital in the Brazos Valley that performs the TAVR procedure (transcatheter aortic valve replacement), a minimally invasive alternative to open heart surgery. TAVR is a treatment for heart valve disease that allows the patient to quickly get out of the hospital and back home the next day.
