Cardiovascular treatments and services we offer

Whether you have clogged arteries or experience a heart attack, our nationally accredited cardiovascular program offers a wide range of diagnostic procedures as well as minimally invasive surgeries.

With our full range of cardiology services and treatments, we ensure your optimal heart health, correct abnormalities and restore blood flow to the heart. We also determine your cardiovascular disease risk factors before any long-term damage is done.

The cardiac health treatments and procedures we offer include:

Heart arrhythmia treatment

A heart arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat, occurs when the heart’s electrical system isn't functioning properly. Our highly skilled electrophysiologists use our electrophysiology (EP) lab to provide EP studies.

Once the source of the irregularity is identified, our heart care team performs procedures to treat, and even cure, these heartbeat abnormalities. Pacemaker insertion, defibrillator implantation, ablation therapy and cardioversion are common procedures we perform to treat arrhythmias.

Comprehensive heart attack care

Our emergency room physicians and support staff are prepared to provide life-saving heart attack care 24/7, with access to some of the most advanced technology and cardiac expertise in the state of Florida.

Our board-certified cardiologists work together with our ER physicians quickly apply stringent, proven standards to produce best possible outcomes. This results in fewer hospital readmissions and less extensive damage to the heart.

Trusted heart disease treatment

Another way we help stop heart attacks is by treating attack-causing heart diseases and lowering risk factors before one occurs.

Heart disease is the nation's top cause of death. The team at Largo Medical is at the forefront of heart disease treatment using cutting-edge technologies and heart screening procedures. We provide comprehensive, specialized treatment of all types of heart disease.

We also offer heart and vascular disease medications, like clot-dissolving medicines, and medical or surgical procedures as treatment.

Heart failure treatment

Heart failure occurs when your heart gets weaker over time and can no longer function at its peak capacity.

Our cardiologists and heart care team at the Largo Advanced Heart Failure Center work with you to determine the best course of heart failure care you need. Our comprehensive health failure treatment includes personalized plans for lifestyle changes, heart failure medications, infusion therapy, implantation of left ventricular assist devices and heart transplants.

Heart and vascular surgery

When other treatment options prove unsuccessful or it is simply the best treatment option, our heart doctors will recommend heart and vascular surgery. With some of the most trained and elite cardiovascular surgeons in the state, we perform a full array of surgical procedures to help you regain your cardiovascular health so you can get back to the life you love.

Some of the minimally invasive and traditional heart and vascular surgeries we perform include:

  • Angioplasty or stents
  • Bypass surgery
  • Heart transplant
  • Heart valve repair or replacement
  • Left ventricular assist device implantation
  • Pacemaker implantation

Heart transplant surgery

When all other options have been exhausted in treating heart failure, a heart transplant may be the solution. The transplant qualifying process and journey can be a challenging one, but our dedicated team of transplant specialists are there to offer support and experienced care every step of the way.

Our Transplant Institute of Florida is the first on the state's west coast to offer heart transplantation surgery to our patients.
