We also offer a mobile heart program focused on prevention and early detection of heart problems.
Cardiovascular Treatment Procedures
As Orange County’s heart care leader, our cardiovascular specialists perform several cardiac procedures, routinely conducted at the world’s finest medical centers.
Elective angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure where a catheter with a small balloon opens a blocked artery to supply your heart with the necessary blood.
Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a pager-sized device implanted in your chest. It works by detecting and stopping dangerous, abnormal heartbeats.
Intervascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a procedure performed along with cardiac catheterization for purposes of studying a patient’s coronary arteries.
Interventional Cardiac Catheterization
Interventional catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure where treatments, such as angioplasty, are performed to open a blocked artery. Learn more.
Insertable Cardiac Monitor
Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) is the smallest long-term, insertable cardiac monitoring device for patients with recurrent fainting, heart palpitations.
A pacemaker is a small device implanted in a patient’s chest or abdomen that uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. Learn more.
