About

A percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a procedure used to treat coronary artery disease where the arteries to the heart are blocked. As a patient at the Cardiovascular Center, when you receive this procedure you are treated by cardiothoracic surgeons who are experienced in both cutting edge surgical techniques and research into the newest treatment possibilities.

Our surgeons also work closely with a collaborative team of care-givers and nurses to provide the best continuum of care from the first visit where the patient is diagnosed to their checkout from a hospital stay.
