Services and Treatment Options
At Weiss, you have access to a variety of cardiovascular treatment options, including coronary angioplasty, stenting, permanent pacemaker and AICD placement and bi-ventricular devices. Approximately 50% of all coronary angiograms are done as outpatient procedures. Weiss interventional cardiologists use closure devices that make it possible to move around two to three hours afterward.

Weiss offers specialized Telemetry Units that complement our 16-bed Intensive Cardiac Care Unit. Telemetry is a sophisticated, noninvasive method to monitor the heart’s rhythm and electrical activity. The Telemetry Unit provides 24-hour monitoring of the heart’s activity to help identify changes and possible cardiac events.
Our Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory facilitates more effective angioplasty methods for heart attacks and provides 24-hour emergency service. Our newly renovated lab provides diagnostic and interventional cardiovascular procedures to assess your heart’s condition and provide the treatment you need to help your heart.
