Interventional cardiology is a way of treating heart disease with cardiac catheterization. In cardiac catheterization, doctors use catheter (a fine tube) to view structures inside the body and make repairs, often without major surgery.
Aurora Health Care’s cardiac cath labs, equipped with the latest tools and technology, are located throughout eastern Wisconsin. We treat more people facing serious heart problems than anyone in the state. As a result, we have expertise in a wide range of conditions.
Our doctors use the latest medical tools, including 3-D and 4-D imaging and intravascular ultrasound, which creates an image of the inside of blood vessels.
Hybrid catheterization labs, available at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center, take these advances a step further. These cath lab/operating rooms combine the best of interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery in one procedure.
Patients and doctors also choose us because we offer:
We’re available throughout eastern Wisconsin, equipped with the knowledge and tools to evaluate even the most complex heart conditions.
