Cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath lab)

Our cardiac cath lab offers minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat a wide range of heart conditions. This type of procedure involves a thin, flexible tube (catheter) into the heart. This allows heart doctors to perform:

  • Coronary angiography — a procedure used to diagnose conditions using an injectable dye and X-ray technology
  • Coronary interventions — procedures used to treat blocked or narrowed arteries
  • Biopsies — procedures involving the removal of small pieces of tissue for closer examination with a microscope
  • Other diagnostics — these procedures may include checking the pressure and pumping abilities of the heart's chambers

Nonsurgical heart services

Although surgery may be the best option to treat your cardiovascular condition, when possible, we will do our best to help you manage your condition with noninvasive methods. This includes medication management, nutrition counseling and rehabilitative programs.
