Cardiovascular Catheterization Lab
The cardiovascular catheterization lab offers cutting edge technology delivered with compassion. Our committed physicians and staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a years for the emergent cardiovascular patient.
In our nine bed Cardiovascular Special Procedure Area (CSPA), patients are prepared for procedures in a comfortable setting. Families are able to wait in our beautifully inviting waiting room. Most of our patients are able to arrive, receive treatment, and safely return home the same day. We provide the highest quality rhythm management devices and defibrillators, along with minimally invasive implantable cardiac loop recorders. In addition, we utilize the Impella device, the world’s smallest heart pump. The Impella helps support the patient during high risk coronary stenting, when the heart is too weak to do the work itself.
We are a leader in treating peripheral arterial disease and limb salvage. Our physicians have a single minded commitment to treating PAD and helping patients return to their everyday lives.
Cardiothoracic surgery is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the chest - generally treatment of conditions of the heart and lungs. Our cardiothoracic surgeon is available 24 hours a day.
We are able to provide:
- Coronary Artery Bypass
- Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Bypass
- Valve Repair and Replacement
- Minimally Invasive Atrial Fibrillation Ablation
- Atrial Fibrillation Ablation with CABG/Valve Surgery
- Minimally Invasive Thoracotomy for Lobectomy or Wedge Resectionas of Lung Masses
- Pacemaker Placement
- Vascular Surgeries for Peripheral Vascular Disease
- Carotid Endarterectomy
- Endovascular Aneurysm Repair - Abdominal and Thoracic
We are often able to perform bypass surgery “off pump” where the heart is not stopped and the patient is not put on a cardiopulmonary bypass machine (heart-lung machine). This technique, under the skilled hands of our surgeon, decreases the patient’s time under anesthesia and their hospital stay. Additionally, it reduces the risk of stroke, renal failure, and bleeding. We also offer a surgical treatment for atrial fibrillation.
Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation can be an integral part in management and maintenance of patients suffering from chronic respiratory disease.
Our AACVPR accredited Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program helps heart procedure and chronic respiratory disease patients thrive. Working with specialized staff in a beautiful setting, cardiac patients are able to obtain exercise training, education, and counseling to help reduce the risk of recurrent visits to the hospital.
The Cardiopulmonary Rehab Unit offers cardiopulmonary stress tests and pulmonary function tests to help your physician make treatment decisions. For patients that have exhausted the standard treatment options for revascularization, we also offer EECP (enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) to reduce persistent stable angina.
In national rankings recently released, Consumer Reports ranked Hutchinson Regional Medical Center (HRMC) number 8 in patient safety out of 128 hospitals in Kansas.
