Expert Diagnosis, Advanced Treatment, Unparalleled Care
Cardiac Catheterization Lab
Diagnostic tests and nonsurgical treatments are available for patients
with all stages of heart disease and problems associated with heart disease—from
chest pain (angina) to heart attacks (myocardial infarctions) and coronary
artery disease, valve disease and congenital conditions. Our team consists
of some of the most experienced cardiologists and interventional cardiologists
in the community. As new protocols emerge, Jupiter Medical Center physicians
and staff receive up-to-the-minute training aligned with recommendations
from Mount Sinai Heart New York to ensure the best clinical practices.
- Procedures performed in the interventional cardiology catheterization lab include:
- Balloon angioplasty
- Stent implantation
- Cardiac biopsy
- Coronary and left ventricular digital angiography
- Diagnostic cardiac catheterization
- Coronary intravascular ultrasound
- Pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) placement
- Right and left heart catheterization
Two state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization labs—staffed by board-certified
cardiologists, nurses, and specialized technicians—employ the most
advanced techniques to detect anomalies and provide catheter-based treatment
for compromised coronary arteries and valves, heart attacks, and vascular
problems. These procedures achieve results with minimal discomfort, faster
healing times and less risk than traditional surgery.
Open Heart Program – Scheduled to open in 2018
The symptoms of a stroke appear suddenly, and because it is a leading cause
of death and disability, stroke should be emphasized as an emergency.
There are treatments that can reduce the risk of damage from a stroke,
but only if you get help quickly. Time is particularly critical because
every second counts! We believe it's fundamentally important to have
a hospital like Jupiter Medical Center nearby with a dedicated staff and
program specifically focused on stroke care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
But we also want you to be aware of stroke warning signs, recognize the
risk factors and think
Face: Smile. Does one side of the face droop?
Arms: Raise both. Does one arm drift downward?
Speech: Talk. Are words slurred? Is a sentence repeated correctly?
Time: Don't wait. If any of these symptoms are present, call 911 immediately.
Our Stroke Team Strikes Back
When someone you know is experiencing a stroke and requires emergency care,
it's reassuring to know expert help is immediately available. Team
members include board-certified emergency medicine physicians, nurses,
interventional radiologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists,
speech therapists, case managers, social workers, dietitians, laboratory
personnel, pharmacists, and a stroke program coordinator.
Stroke Prevention & Education
At Jupiter Medical Center, we are committed to the prevention of strokes.
Early detection is vital to successful recovery. Our stroke team has placed
a huge emphasis on patient and community education and screenings to increase
awareness about stroke prevention. Knowing what to look for—and
what lifestyle changes you must make—will lower the chance of a
stroke, as well as a stroke's potential impact.
Jupiter Medical Center is proud to be recognized by the Joint Commission
as a Certified Primary Stroke Center. Joint Commission accreditation and
