Making heart health a priority
Heart health is about more than just your heart. Blood pressure, cholesterol, family history and other factors all play important roles in keeping your heart strong. If you have questions about your heart health but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.
Non-Invasive Cardiac Diagnostic Testing
Raleigh's cardiologists often use diagnostic procedures to determine the cardiac condition of our patients. These diagnostic tests may include:
- Treadmill stress testing
- Holter monitoring/event monitoring
- Stress echo
- Nuclear Cardiology
- Peripheral vascular testing
- Cardiac CT
- Cardiac MRI
Following necessary diagnostic testing, our physicians will collaborate with the patient's referring physician to determine the best possible course of treatment. Often, we can help our patients develop a plan to improve their diet and exercise, which may prevent potential cardiac problems in the future. The cardiac treatments performed may include:
- Coronary thrombectomy
- Balloon angioplasty
- Implantable defibrillator (ICD)
- Intra-aortic balloon pump
- Pacemaker and defibrillator implantation & monitoring
- Cardiac catheterization
- Coronary angiogram
- Tilt table test
- Transtelephonic monitoring
Cardiac Care Stepdown
Cardiac Care Stepdown is a 23-bed step-down unit providing post-angioplasty services and critical care services.
Raleigh Cardiology is a department of Raleigh General Hospital. When you see a physician or receive services in a provider-based clinic, you are technically being treated in an outpatient department of the hospital rather than the physician’s office. Please refer to “Understanding your Healthcare Costs” to learn how your bill may be affected when seen by a provider in a provider-based clinic.
