An angioplasty is a procedure in which a small balloon is inserted to open
a blocked artery and restore blood flow to the heart. A heart attack can
occur if that blood flow becomes completely blocked.
Highly-experienced interventional cardiologists on staff at Community Medical
Center are available to perform elective angioplasties. These are the
same trusted physicians who have performed hundreds of life-saving angioplasty
procedures on an emergency basis.
For further information about the angioplasty procedure, please speak with
your physician. To read more about our cardiac services, visit our
Heart Centers website.
