VCS physicians have the ability and experience to handle all of your heart care needs. They are skilled in general cardiovascular disease diagnosis and treatment and many have additional expertise in cardiovascular subspecialty areas such as cardiovascular intervention, carotid stenting, CT angiography, heart rhythm disorders, peripheral vascular disease & intervention, and preventive cardiology.More >> Carotid angioplasty is a procedure that opens clogged arteries to prevent or treat stroke. The carotid arteries are located on each side of your neck and bring oxygenated blood from the heart to supply blood to your brain. The angioplasty procedure involves temporarily inserting and inflating a tiny balloon where your carotid artery is clogged to widen the artery.
A computerized tomography (CT) coronary angiogram is an imaging test to look at the arteries that supply your heart muscle with blood. CT angiography relies on powerful x-rays to produce images of your heart and heart vessels. CT angiograms don't require the recovery time needed with traditional angiograms and are becoming a common diagnostic tool for a variety of heart conditions.More >> Heart rhythm disorders, or arrhythmias, are problems that affect the electrical system, or "wiring," of the heart muscle. Heart arrhythmias are very common and nearly everyone will experience an abnormal heart rhythm at some point. Most are not serious. For those arrhythmias that are serious, it is important to determine the cause.More >> The CT Heart Scan is recognized and recommended to help identify hidden heart disease in asymptomatic, at-risk adults. It measures the amount of calcium build up in your coronary arteries and determines your risk for developing heart disease. The scan is quick and painless. It does not require any patient preparation, injections or IVs.More >> VascularView is a comprehensive package of three non-invasive vascular screening procedures to assess a person's risk for stroke, peripheral artery disease, and aneurysm of the abdominal aorta. These tests are recommended for men and women over the age of 50 or for individuals with two or more risk factors for vascular disease.More >> Clinical Research Studies help pave the way for new treatments and advancements in the field of Cardiovascular disease. Each Research Study at VCS is led by one of our physicians, who serves as the Principal Investigator (PI) at our study site.More >>
