Specialized Cardiology Care

Val Verde Regional Medical Center's Cardiology Clinic staff can help you manage various heart conditions and the associated diseases including lipids and hypertension. Non-invasive testing is available to diagnose many conditions and problems. For example, VVRMC's radiology department conducts echocardiograms. This non-invasive, ultrasound technology is used to create pictures of your heart which tell the cardiologist how well your heart is functioning.

The Cardiology Center is also equipped to handle cardiac emergencies. There is on site equipment and trained staff to assist in rapid diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening conditions such as heart attacks. These services include both non-invasive diagnosis and treatment and interventional treatment such as the placement of stents to open closed arteries.
