In response to the need for additional cardiac care services to our community, Baptist Beaumont Hospital offers three Cardiac Catheterization Labs. Services offered include a full range of diagnostic and interventional treatment options including heart catheterizations, coronary and peripheral arteriography, coronary and peripheral angioplasty, coronary and peripheral stent placement including drug eluting stents, coronary and peripheral thrombolysis, carotid artery stenting, atherectomy, permanent pacemaker implantation, permanent internal cardiac defibrillator implantation, and temporary pacemaker insertions.
Both labs are equipped with digital technology to aid physicians with the detection of abnormalities within the heart and arteries. Procedures are performed by a certified staff in partnership with specially trained and credentialed cardiologists, interventional radiology and vascular surgeons who have all been approved to perform procedures in the Cardiac Catheterization Labs. For more information, please call (409) 212-7270.
Providing Lifesaving Services for Patients with Aortic Stenosis
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a less invasive procedure used to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis who are at risk for traditional surgical aortic valve replacement. Aortic stenosis causes a narrowing of the aortic valve which makes it more difficult for the heart to pump blood.
The TAVR procedure enables the delivery of an artificial heart valve through a small incision using a catheter-based approach. The new valve functions like a normal heart valve, improving blood flow and reduces symptoms caused by aortic stenosis. Baptist Beaumont Hospital is the only hospital in Southeast Texas that performs this procedure.
Heart and Valve Center
The Heart & Valve Center at Baptist Beaumont Hospital is located at 740 Hospital Drive, in the professional tower across from the Baptist Beaumont Hospital campus. At the Heart & valve Center, patients are able to see any doctor on our certified TAVR team.
From initial consultations, to diagnostic testing and follow-up appointments, this one-stop for cardiovascular care makes it easier for every patient to get the right treatment at the right time.
