The Interventional Cardiology Program at the UF Health Cardiovascular Center in Jacksonville has invested in the most advanced equipment to assist our team in making a diagnosis and determining the best possible treatment plan as quickly as possible for blockages in the main arteries of the heart, called coronary artery disease. Our highly trained physicians, nurses and technical teams provide compassionate cardiac care in a state-of-the-art environment.

Conditions, tests and treatments

UF Health interventional cardiologists offer patients a number of diagnostic and treatment options for coronary artery blockages. After diagnostic procedures have been completed, the best treatment plan is selected to treat the blockages in the arteries of the heart. Often blockages can be treated with less-invasive techniques, such as stents. However, based on the severity and location of the blockages, patients may require coronary artery bypass surgery.

Other diagnostic and interventional procedures

Other diagnostic procedures may be necessary in conjunction with diagnostic angiography to help further determine the severity and importance of the blockages in the arteries of the heart. These diagnostic procedures include advanced imaging modalities such as coronary intravascular ultrasound, or IVUS, and optical coherence tomography, or OCT, as well physiologic assessments such as fractional flow reserved, or FFR.

Other treatment modalities available to assist with opening the arteries of the heart include atherectomy for patients who have very calcified blockages which are more challenging to open with balloons. The use of laser ablation is also used in some patients who have excessive tissue growth inside the stent. We also have access to technologies useful for removing blood clots from arteries in patients who are having a heart attack.

Other conditions treated

Our Interventional Cardiology Program offers treatment options for disease conditions other than coronary artery disease, including valvular heart disease and other structural heart disease conditions, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and peripheral vascular disease.
