Hospital Procedures Q & A

What hospital procedures are available?

The providers at Cary Cardiology, P.A., provide comprehensive care for various hospital procedures relating to your cardiovascular care.

They coordinate with local hospitals for procedures like:

Cardiac catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure to diagnose and treat certain cardiovascular conditions. The process involves inserting a long, thin tube into a vein or artery in your neck, groin, or arm to reach your heart.

This test can locate blood vessel blockages, evaluate how well your heart pumps blood, and take a tissue sample from your heart.

Device implants

Device implants like pacemakers and cardiac loop recorders help regulate your heartbeat and rhythm if you have conditions like arrhythmias or heart failure.

Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE)

TEE is a diagnostic test that creates pictures of your heart using high-frequency soundwaves. 

This procedure involves inserting a slim catheter tube with an attached transducer into your mouth and down into your esophagus to take clear and detailed pictures of your heart’s structures.

Why do certain cardiac procedures need to be done in a hospital?

Because there are risk factors with some cardiovascular diagnostic or treatment procedures, the providers at Cary Cardiology, P.A., perform them in a hospital setting. This ensures the physicians have access to needed technology for preventing complications and properly evaluating your heart health.

You might also need anesthesia for some cardiac procedures to keep you comfortable and relaxed, and the physicians can safely provide it in a hospital setting.

Some cardiac procedures also require medical monitoring afterward to ensure you have no complications during recovery. The Cary Cardiology, P.A., cardiologists work closely with the hospital staff to monitor your recovery process.

How do I schedule hospital procedures?

If you need a procedure to diagnose unexplained symptoms related to cardiovascular conditions, the providers at Cary Cardiology, P.A., can discuss hospital procedure options during your appointment.

The cardiologists offer several cardiovascular tests in-office to identify the root cause of symptoms like leg pain, dizziness, and heart palpitations. If these tests don’t confirm a diagnosis, your physician might recommend additional testing in a hospital setting.
