Cardiology & Vascular Care

Turn to the experienced cardiologists and vascular specialists at Olmsted Medical Center (OMC) for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular conditions.

The OMC cardiology team treats adult patients aged 18 and older.

Heart & Vascular Conditions 

Find expert care and treatment for a wide range of adult heart and vascular conditions, including:

  • Angina, chest pain or discomfort 
  • Aortic stenosis, when the aortic valve does not open fully to carry blood out of your heart to the rest of the body
  • Arrhythmia (irregular or slow heartbeat), including Atrial fibrillation (Afib)
  • Blood clots, abnormal clumping of blood in the body
  • Coronary artery disease, when arteries that supply blood to your heart become narrow and harden
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF), when the heart is not pumping enough blood to the body
  • Cardiomyopathy, enlarged heart muscles 
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Peripheral artery disease or peripheral vascular disease
  • Valve diseases and disorders

Diagnostic Heart Services

Get accurate and comprehensive testing services, including:

  • Echocardiogram (stress test) - Uses sound waves to create detailed pictures of how your heart beats and pumps blood
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) - Places electrodes on your skin to record your heart's electrical activity through an event monitor, such as a Holter monitor

Treatments

Benefit from compassionate expertise and patient-focused services to help get you back to your healthy active life. Depending on your condition, your doctor may recommend:

  • Angioplasty, a procedure to restore blood flow through your artery
  • Bypass surgery, which opens arteries to create a new path for blood to flow to your heart
  • Cardiac ablation to treat heart rhythm problems
  • Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, improves physical function in patients with cardiac disease or recent cardiac surgeries
  • Education on wellness, nutrition counseling, lifestyle choices, and stress management
  • Heart embolization, a minimally invasive surgical technique used to prevent blood flow to an area of the body to shrink a tumor or block an aneurysm
  • Percutaneous coronary intervention (coronary Angioplasty), which uses a balloon to widen blocked or narrowed arteries 
  • Surgical placement and removal of pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs)
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), minimally invasive surgery to replace your aortic valve
