Hobbs Hospital's doctors use cardiac catheterization to both diagnose
and treat heart disease. This minimally invasive, interventional cardiology
technique uses a catheter (thin, flexible tube) that is inserted into
the arteries to examine the heart, arteries and veins with real-time images
(fluoroscopy). These procedures only require a tiny incision where the
catheter is inserted into an artery, so it results in less blood loss,
less pain and a quicker recovery for patients.
The cath lab at Hobbs Hospital features interventional cardiologists and
currently provides elective diagnostic and interventional procedures.
We will expand our services to include 24/7 emergent medical coverage
and peripheral vascular disease care and management of pacemakers/defibrillators.
