Cardiac Catheterization Lab
Clinch Valley Health's team of cardiologists perform procedures to diagnose and treat coronary artery disease (narrowing or blocked arteries), abnormal heart rhythms and peripheral vascular disease. These common treatable conditions can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke, or loss of limbs. Many non-surgical treatments are also available.
Our cardiologists and cardiac catheterization team use minimally invasive instruments and techniques to get you safely back home as soon as medically possible, many times the same day as the procedure.

- Interventional Services
Our experienced cardiac catheterization team performs procedures using balloons, stents, and other devices to open blocked, or repair damaged blood vessels of the heart or body. This often avoids the need for surgery.
Interventional procedures are done under a local anesthetic and patient recovery is usually less than 24 hours. Patients are often home within two days of the procedure and back to their normal routine within one week. Interventional services can be performed during a cardiac catheterization if a problem is revealed during this diagnostic procedure.
