For more information on the diagnoses, treatments and procedures that our doctors perform using interventional radiology, please visit our Interventional Radiology page.

Our Radiology Department practices interventional radiology (IR), an advanced, minimally-invasive technique that diagnoses and treats abnormalities in blood vessels, ducts and other structures throughout the body. Our interventional radiologists thread very small, delicate catheters and instruments through blood vessels or ducts directly to the sites that need repair. We use these minimally invasive techniques so you can usually go home the same day and with less pain than you would experience from other procedures.

A personalized rehabilitation program is good for your heart and for you

If you have coronary artery disease or are recovering from heart attack, angina, stent placement, heart transplant or coronary bypass surgery, the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center can help you get back on your feet. Our team of rehabilitation medicine specialists will customize a heart-wise diet and exercise plan that promotes your recovery and helps you adopt healthy habits that fit your lifestyle.

One of our registered nurses will monitor you during exercise and provide you with information on nutritious eating, getting and staying fit. Our three-phase approach can aid your recovery and help you return to a full, healthy and active life:

  • Phase One takes place immediately after a cardiac event, when you are recovering in the hospital.
  • Phase Two assigns you to a 12-week cardio-conditioning class with a prescription from your doctor. Depending on your health, you will attend the class three times a week.
  • Phase Three is for health maintenance. You can complete this phase at your local gym, the Phelps Wellness Center or home. Your doctor will help you create a personalized exercise plan, and will probably recommend that you participate three times per week.

Each phase, as well as use of the Phelps Wellness Center, come with certain fees. Most insurers and Medicare cover Phase Two but please consult your insurance company to find out exactly which services it covers. To participate in this program, you will need a doctor’s referral. You will also have to undergo a treadmill stress test no more than six months in advance.
