If you have a family history of coronary artery disease or are suffering symptoms, it is essential to receive regular care. Untreated, it can cause heart-related problems such as arrhythmias and heart failure.
Specialists at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, routinely perform successful heart bypass surgery using minimally invasive and open heart surgery techniques, as well as catheter interventions. Specialists frequently manage patients with multiple and complex blocked arteries even if you are not considered to be a surgical candidate.
We have extensively expanded our catheterization labs. With more space and advanced technology, interventional cardiologists here can achieve greater outcomes in an optimal patient setting.
As a certified Center of Excellence for Endoscopic Vein Harvesting, surgeons are able to make small incisions to remove veins from one part of the body to use during a bypass surgery. We also offer transmyocardial laser revascularization, a procedure used to treat coronary artery disease when it can’t be treated with bypass grafting or angioplasty. We are a leading center on the West Coast to help train other surgeons in this technique.
