Complete Cardiac Care Close to Home

Many of our patients may not realize they have heart problems until they arrive in our emergency department. Our cardiac and vascular programs cover the full continuum of cardiac care, starting with diagnostic procedures and including surgery and rehabilitation.  All of them performed right here in Corpus Christi, without having to leave town for advanced treatment. Our services include:

  • Treatment for heart attacks, including coronary artery bypass graft surgery, angioplasty and stent placement
  • Aortic arch repair
  • Valve repair and replacement surgery, including minimally invasive mitral valve procedures
  • Vascular procedures, including blood clots and deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment and stent placement
  • Surgical treatment for atrial fibrillation
  • Carotid endarterectomy (carotid artery surgery)
  • Electrophysiology services, including insertion of biventricular and permanent pacemakers, pacemaker lead extraction and internal cardiac defibrillators and diagnostics
  • Cardiac rehabilitation, with a complete three-phase inpatient and outpatient rehab for our cardiac patients. Care begins inpatient, with supervised diet, exercise and monitoring, and moves to outpatient as our patients resume their lives but still need some care and supervision
