Your heart is at the center of so much that matters. At the Providence cardiovascular center, healing hearts is our specialty. Our doctors and care teams offer complete cardiovascular services to help keep your heart healthy.

Whether you need early evaluation, urgent intervention, surgical solutions or critical care, your heart is in good hands here.

Surgical services

Surgical leaders at Providence provide all types of care — from interventional or minimally invasive heart and vascular procedures to traditional open surgery for certain complex conditions. Your doctors and care team will talk with you about your unique condition and treatment options.

Interventional procedures

Thanks to smart medical technology and engineering, our doctors can find, examine and treat blocked vessels or injured tissues with great accuracy and efficiency.

Providence heart doctors perform many interventional — or minimally invasive — techniques guided by cameras, special software and finely engineered operating tools. When appropriate, we’ll use these treatment approaches rather than traditional open surgery, which involves more cuts, general anesthesia and a longer recovery time.
