Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center is a recognized leader in the treatment of heart attacks. We perform angioplasty in our digital imaging procedure labs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A team of highly experienced nurses and cardiovascular technicians assist our skilled physicians with both elective and emergency procedures.
Angioplasty enables doctors to thread a balloon-type catheter into the artery to improve blood flow to the heart. Angioplasty both reduces the number of patients who undergo bypass surgery and treats people who are not healthy enough for major surgery. Primary angioplasty is a life-saving procedure that opens up disease vessels of a heart attack patient.
