At the Charles L. Tice Heart Center for Diagnostic Services Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, peripheral vascular catheterization is used to test for and treat blockages within the arteries of the kidneys, arms and legs. If blockages are found during the diagnostic test, Newton Medical Center’s interventional cardiologists or vascular surgeons may elect to open the blockage. State-of-the-art technology is available at our cardiac catheterization laboratory for treatment of peripheral vascular disease, including balloons, stents, atherectomy and thrombectomy. Opening the artery will allow appropriate blood supply to flow through the artery to the necessary body part.
If additional cardiac services are necessary, patients have full access to Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center or Overlook Medical Center.
