Invasive Services

  • Pacemaker implantation (temporary and permanent): A device that delivers electric shocks to the heart to keep it beating at a normal rhythm, pacemakers are usually used when the heart beats too slowly.
  • Implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD): Similar to pacemakers, and many ICDs can act as a pacemaker, ICDs are ideal for patients who may suffer life-threatening arrhythmia.
  • Cardiac catheterization: This is a diagnostic test used to find out if you have heart disease or a blockage in any of your valves or arteries.
  • Coronary angiography: This is a diagnostic X-ray test used to find out if your coronary arteries are blocked.
  • Electrophysiology: This procedure helps identify and treat arrhythmia (heart rhythm disorders).
  • Transesophageal echocardiography: This test uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce an image of your heart.
