Cardiac Catheterization Lab
If your doctor suspects you have a blocked artery or other heart problem, you may find yourself in our Cardiac Catheterization Lab. Since 1991, we’ve been providing cardiac catheterization services to people at Providence St. Joseph Hospital Eureka. Our caring team makes catheterizations as easy and stress-free as possible.
Cardiac catheterizations allow doctors to diagnose and treat many types of heart and vascular disease using minimally invasive procedures. With special imaging equipment, our team can get a better understanding of how your heart and vascular system are working.
We take care to keep you comfortable before and during your procedure. We answer your questions, tell you how to prepare and guide your recovery so that you can have the best heart and vascular health possible.
We use cardiac catheterization for both diagnosis and treatment of many heart and vascular conditions. Some of the most common procedures we perform include:
- Balloon angioplasty
- Elective Cardioversion
- Implantable cardiac defibrillator placement
- Loop Implants
- Peripheral Angiography and Angioplasty
- Stent placement
- Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)
Our Catheterization Lab team includes skilled interventional cardiologists, registered nurses with extensive intensive care experience and experienced imaging technologists. All have advanced training in cardiovascular procedures.
