Cardiovascular

The Cardiovascular Institute at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center

The team of experts at the Cardiovascular Institute at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center is specially trained in the care and treatment of a full range of heart conditions. From cardiac catheterization and open-heart surgery to cardiac rehabilitation, the staff at the Cardiovascular Institute has more experience helping people with heart problems than any other hospital in Volusia or Flagler counties. For over three decades, our team has been providing the most advanced level of cardiac care in this area. This experience has enabled us to fine-tune our skills and maintain the optimum level of proficiency you deserve. 

Since introducing open-heart surgery to the area in 1980, our surgeons and professional staff have performed over 10,000 coronary artery bypass grafts - with excellent results. Each year, our hospitals perform about 350 open-heart surgeries, 300 balloon angioplasties, 1,500 cardiac catheterizations and 600 coronary artery stent implants.

Heart Health

It’s never too early to learn how to prevent heart disease and heart attacks. In fact, the Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute and the American Heart Association recommend beginning the process at age 20. You can start by knowing your risk factors and getting up to speed on the symptoms and warning signs of a heart attack.

Did you know that the symptoms of heart disease can be different in men and women? Plus, more women than men die each year from heart disease, and 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. The good news is that many of these factors can be mediated by making some lifestyle changes.

Advanced Operating Facilities and Procedures

Our Endovascular/ Hybrid Operating Room allows our team to integrate digital imaging diagnostics, radiological, catheterization and surgical capabilities all within a single operating suite. Patients no longer have to be relocated to various areas throughout the hospital for different treatment needs; they spend less time in surgery, recover with less pain and complications, and return home more quickly. Between our hybrid OR and three other state-of-the-art cardiac operating rooms, cardiovascular surgeons perform a broad range of minimally invasive and open procedures, such as:

  • Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG)
  • Mitral valve repair and replacement
  • Aortic valve replacement and repair
  • Transmyocardial revascularization (TMR) procedure
  • Irregular heart rhythms treatment, including atrial fibrillation
  • Various thoracic and vascular surgical procedures
  • Endovascular procedures

Cardiac Catheterization 

Our advanced facilities and expertise allow us to perform a wide array of life-saving cardiac catheterization procedures, including:

  • Coronary “balloon” angioplasty, artherectomy and stent implantation
  • Electrophysiology studies
  • A-V nodal ablations
  • AFib ablation (Pulmonary vein isolation)
  • Intravascular ultrasound
  • Peripheral vascular disease studies and treatment
  • Pacemakers and Internal Cardiac Defibrillators

Diagnostic Services

Our cardiac team also provides a wide variety of diagnostic evaluations that help determine the exact nature of your heart conditions, including:
EKG
Nuclear, echo and treadmill stress testing
24-hour Holter monitoring
2-D and 3-D echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography with color-flow Doppler
Peripheral arterial evaluations
