Your Cardiovascular Health
Your cardiovascular system is a network of blood vessels working in conjunction with your heart to move blood through your body. Your blood carries important nutrients to your muscles, bones and tissues, which is why blockages and other cardiovascular issues are so dangerous to your health.
We understand your need for experts in every aspect of cardiovascular care, which is why MacNeal’s cardiovascular services offers specialists in cardiology and vascular care. Our physicians work both independently and together to meet your needs.
The MacNeal cardiovascular team stands ready to perform the necessary procedures, including therapeutic cardiac catheterizations with stenting, emergency angioplasty, laser atherectomy, peripheral procedures, pacemaker placement, open-heart surgery, internal defibrillator placement, radiofrequency ablation and other cardiology services. We also offer a full spectrum of cardiology testing procedures, such as echocardiograms, electrophysiology, rhythm management and stress testing.
