Jupiter Medical Center’s Expert Team

Jupiter Medical Center brings together a team of experienced, board-certified cardiologists and cardiac surgeons experienced in performing a full spectrum of cardiac services.

Many of our cardiologists have specialty training in interventional techniques, which is the catheter-based treatment of coronary artery disease. Our interventional cardiologists are highly experienced with performing diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedures to test for heart disease. Our interventional cardiologists are also experts at treating heart disease in adults, using procedures including balloon angioplasty, stenting and thrombectomy.

Our team also includes cardiologists who are board-certified in electrophysiology. Electrophysiologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms, such as atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm disorders. Our electrophysiologists also perform pacemaker and defibrillator implants in our Cardiac Catheterization Lab.

While many people with coronary artery disease can be treated using minimally invasive techniques, some heart conditions are very serious or highly complex and must be treated with open heart surgery. Our cardiac surgeons perform open heart surgeries using the latest techniques, including “off-pump” cardiopulmonary bypass surgery, often known as CABG. Off-pump bypass grafting differs from traditional coronary artery bypass surgery because it does not require the use of a heart-lung machine. Instead, the patient’s own heart continues beating and circulating blood and oxygen throughout the body during the surgery.

As new protocols emerge, Jupiter Medical Center physicians and staff receive up-to-the-minute training to ensure clinical practices based on the latest evidence.

Our cardiac care teams work together to offer the highest quality interventional cardiology, advanced heart failure care, electrophysiology, cardiac imaging, preventive cardiology, cardiac surgery, and other heart and vascular services.
