Diagnostic

Sovah Health - Martinsville’s cardiac specialists are well-trained and equipped to diagnose cardiovascular difficulties. Through the use of such comprehensive tests and procedures such as echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), venous duplex ultrsound, aterial studies, cartoid ultrasound, electrocardiography (EKG), Holter monitoring and Cardiolite Stress Testing, we are able to evaluate the health of your heart and circulatory system.

Interventional

Our experienced cardiac catheterization team performs procedures using balloons, stents, and other devices to open blocked, or repair damaged blood vessels of the heart or body. This often avoids the need for surgery.

Common treatable conditions include coronary artery disease (narrowing of the coronary arteries), heart valve disease, or peripheral vascular disease. These can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke, or loss of limbs.

Interventional procedures are done under a local anesthetic and patient recovery is usually less than 24 hours. Patients are often home within two days of the procedure and back to their normal routine within one week. Interventional services can be performed during a cardiac catheterization if a problem is revealed during this diagnostic procedure.

Rehabilitation

Our Cardiac Rehab department includes team members who will work with you and your cardiologist to:

  • identify your personal risk factors;
  • help you learn to control them through patient education, nutritional counseling, and progressive exercise; and
  • work with you to be well on your way to adopting a healthier lifestyle.
