Since 1993 Florida Hospital Waterman has been providing heart catheterizations to our community. Most of the same physicians that began that program are still providing services here today. With the growth of the program came growth in expertise.
Today, Florida Hospital Waterman offers the finest catheterization equipment and techniques with long term skill to provide the best procedural experience available. Our recovery areas have highly skilled critical care nurses specially trained in the care of patients after the procedure.
The purpose of cardiac catheterization is to find out if you have disease in your coronary arteries, or atherosclerosis. If you have atherosclerosis, this test can pinpoint the size and location of fat and calcium deposits (plaque) that are narrowing your coronary arteries. Results from cardiac catheterization help determine what specialized treatment will be most effective.
