Imaging and Diagnostics
For a comprehensive, detailed picture of a patient’s heart and how it is functioning, doctors frequently recommend noninvasive cardiac testing for both prevention and diagnosis. The Heart Institute offers these noninvasive tests:

  • Echocardiogram
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Holter Monitor
  • Exercise Stress Test
  • Nuclear Stress Test
  • Dobutamine Stress
  • Transcranial Doppler
  • Echocardiogram and Bubble Study Evaluation of PFO
  • Transesophageal Echocardiogram

Interventional Cardiology
At the heart of interventional cardiology services at SJMO is the cardiac catheterization lab. This specialized service plays an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease by allowing cardiologists to assess blockages in coronary arteries and determine the most appropriate treatment options. With state-of the-art technology and highly-skilled cardiovascular specialists, SJMO is leading the way in coronary, peripheral and carotid intervention.

  • Cardiac Catheterization
  • Coronary Angioplasty
  • Carotid Stents
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA)
  • Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO)
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Cardiovascular surgeries are performed in the new Surgical Pavilion in addition to minimally invasive surgeries. Talented cardiovascular specialists perform hundreds of heart surgeries each year with excellent outcomes.

Surgical procedures include:

  • Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG)
  • Repair and replacement of cardiac valves
  • Mini maze treatment for atrial fibrillationAortic root surgery

The Heart Institute treats the following conditions:

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction
  • Coronary Insufficiency
  • Arrythmia (abnormal heart rhythms)
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Peripheral Arterials Disease (PAD)
  • Patent Foramen Ovale Closures (PFO)
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) endografts
  • Carotid Artery Stenosis
