We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Interventional cardiologists have one to two years of additional education and training in diagnosing and treating heart disease. At Brookwood Baptist Health, our interventional cardiologists combine their clinical excellence along with advanced, state-of-the-art
technology to treat heart conditions in a safe and effective way. In particular, they are skilled in performing nonsurgical, minimally-invasive procedures to correct a variety of cardiovascular issues which can include reducing reduce blocked arteries
or stopping heart attacks. This kind of revolutionary procedure gives new hope to patients who are too ill to undergo open heart surgery.
How Do I Benefit?
Typically, patients are allowed to go home the same day of the procedure or are only hospitalized for one night, instead of a longer stay required by open heart surgery. Other benefits to interventional cardiology procedures can include:
Less excessive scarring
Shorter recovery time
Faster symptom relief
Less blood loss
Absence of general anesthesia
Less risk of complications
Less trauma to the body and heart
If you are concerned about your or a loved one’s heart problems, it is important to talk to a doctor about interventional cardiology. Search our physician directory for an interventional cardiologist at the location most convenient to you.
