Heart Health Care
Heart Health Care at VVRMC is open and ready 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 use these catheters (small tubes) to get inside blood vessels in order to repair damaged vessels and other heart structures. It is a non-surgical method used to treat heart and vascular problems. VVRMC has a catheter lab staffed with highly skilled, trained professionals ready to assist our interventional cardiologists in performing these procedures. Because it is a non-invasive modality, 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 catherization lab, and an excellent Cardiac Rehabilitation program.
Dr. Debanshu Roy, MD will be joining VVRMC’s team of highly qualified healthcare professionals to as the Medical Director of Health Health Care at VVRMC. Dr. Roy has been working as an interventional cardiologist in San Antonio for nearly ten years. He is American Board Certified in both Internal Medicine Cardiovascular Disease and in Internal Medicine. He has several certifications including Echocardiography.
As an Interventional Cardiologist, Dr. Roy will be one of several physicians providing around-the-clock interventional cardiology services at VVRMC. Pretty much anything short of open heart surgery is now available for you closer to home.
“One of the service lines we have been sorely missing in Val Verde County is interventional cardiac care,” said VVRMC CEO Linda Walker, “Now, you no longer need to leave the community to receive interventional cardiac care.”
Dr. Roy will be working closely with our catheterization lab and with cardiac rehabilitation in order to provide all around heart care. For more information or to schedule an appointment for Heart Health Care call, 830-778-3696.
