Treatments & Procedures

Receiving proper heart treatment is vital to prevent heart disease symptoms and conditions from worsening. You can rely on the vascular specialists at The Cardiovascular Center at Nacogdoches Medical Center to create a treatment plan that addresses your particular health needs. Our heart and vascular specialists are trained in a variety of treatment options from noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures to more conventional surgical approaches.

Heart Procedures

Artificial Heart Valve Surgery

Artificial heart valve surgery involves replacing an abnormal or diseased heart valve with an artificial one.

Atherectomy

An atherectomy is a procedure in which excess plaque is cut from an artery using a rotating shaver.

Vascular Treatments and Procedures

Amputation

Used in more severe cases, this procedure involves removing a limb or part of a limb that is dangerous to your health. This procedure is always considered a last resort.

Angioplasty Stenting

This procedure involves inflating a small balloon to widen narrowed blood vessels and improve blood flow. A stent may be used to support artery walls.

Exercise

For some vascular conditions, your doctor may recommend a walking program, which can help improve blood flow and decrease pain in the legs.

Surgical Aneurysm Repair

In this procedure, your vascular surgeon repairs or removes aneurysms through an incision in your skin. Aneurysms carry risks for blood clots and rupturing which can be very dangerous.

Surgical Bypass

This surgical procedure creates an alternate route for blood flow to bypass arteries that are blocked.
