Heart Health at VVRMC

Heart Health Care at Val Verde Regional Medical Center (VVRMC) is here to serve your interventional cardiology needs. Just about everything, short of open-heart surgery, can now be covered right here at home. You will no longer have to spend money and valuable time traveling out of town for heart care.

Interventional cardiology is a subspecialty of cardiology dealing specifically with catheter-based treatment of heart diseases. Physicians slide these catheters (small tubes) with attached instruments inside blood vessels to repair damaged vessels and other heart structures. It is a nonsurgical method for treating heart and vascular problems. VVRMC has a catheterization lab staffed with highly skilled, trained professionals ready to assist our interventional cardiologists in performing these procedures. Because it is noninvasive, there is less risk involved and a shorter recovery time.

Heart Health Care at VVRMC includes around-the-clock availability of interventional cardiologists, access to our state-of-the-art catheterization lab and an excellent cardiac rehabilitation program. Call 830.778.3696 for more information or to make an appointment.

"This is my first time here with Dr. Roy, and he was so nice! He was very informative and explained his concerns very well. He gave wonderful advice, and you can tell he really cares about his patients and is genuine. I’m very happy that there is a new doctor here at VVRMC.” —MARIA CASTELLANOS, HEART HEALTH CARE PATIENT
