Interventional Services

Physicians with Bon Secours Heart and Vascular Institute offer many minimally invasive interventions to treat a wide range of cardiovascular conditions. We have advanced catheterization labs at all of our hospitals in Hampton Roads and a state-of-the-art electrophysiology lab at Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center.

Cardiac Interventional Procedures

Interventional cardiovascular procedures use specialized tools and imaging techniques to perform minimally invasive treatments such as catheterizations. Minimally invasive procedures have fewer risks than open surgery, deliver effective results and allow you to recover quickly. We provide:

•  Elective cardioversions
•  Cardiac catheterization, including femoral and radial approaches
•  Placement of cardiac stents
•  Balloon angioplasty
•  Emergency treatment of acute myocardial infarction (heart attack)

Vascular Interventional Services

Our specially trained vascular surgeons perform vascular interventions to restore blood flow through arteries and veins throughout your body. Using minimally invasive techniques, our surgeons can remove blockages and open up blood vessels for these procedures:

•  Peripheral vascular stenting
•  Carotid artery stenting
•  Limb salvage program

Electrophysiology Lab Interventional Services

Our advanced electrophysiology lab at Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center uses minimally invasive techniques to treat cardiac arrhythmias. These procedures restore normal heart rhythm, reducing your risk for stroke or other complications. Our electrophysiology program offers: 

•  Electrophysiology studies
•  Implantation of pacemakers
•  Implantable cardioverter defibrillators
•  Ablations
