With dozens of specialists in various fields of cardiovascular disease, cardiology services at the Pilla Heart Center are of the highest quality, making us a cardiac care leader throughout the region. That expertise combines with our leading-edge diagnostic and treatment equipment, collaborative programs for disease management, innovative cardiovascular interventions, and clinical research to keep us on the cutting-edge of therapy advancement.
Our cardiologists excel at interventional procedures such as angioplasty, cardiac catheterization, and other interventional cardiology techniques. They are highly skilled in the diagnostic and treatment uses of electrophysiology, and in conducting echocardiography and other studies.
Cardiology services at the Pilla Heart Center also include cardiac event and 24-hour Holter monitors with EKG (electrocardiogram) technology and implantable loop recorders. Patients wear these monitors at home, pushing a button to record the times they experience symptoms such as dizziness or irregular heartbeat. Our cardiologists evaluate the findings to determine if those episodes are due to heart rhythm disorders.
Through Pilla Heart Center cardiology services, patients may have their heart functioning assessed by exercise and non-exercise stress tests. Our cardiologists conduct these exams to evaluate conditions such as coronary artery disease. The Pilla Heart Center conducts about 3,000 nuclear (type of imaging agent) and non-nuclear stress tests each year.
