Our Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Services combine the resources and expertise of a large institution with the compassionate, patient- and family-centered approach our patients deserve.

As a pioneer in advanced heart, vascular and thoracic technologies, our multidisciplinary teams of cardiologists, surgeons, pulmonologists, anesthesiologists, radiologists and nurses provide expert diagnosis and treatment. We use comprehensive, evidence-based techniques and therapies to treat the whole patient, and apply noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments whenever possible to minimize disruption to your life and speed healing and recovery.

First in the Region with Noninvasive Cardiac Diagnostic Technology

MMCSC was the first hospital in the region to offer HeartFlow Fractional Flow Reserve Computed Tomography (FFR-CT), an advanced, noninvasive technology that enables physicians to determine whether a patient has heart disease using artificial intelligence. FFR-CT is very low risk and provides accurate information about conditions of the arteries. We also offer other advanced 3D modeling that helps doctors visualize the heart without invasive surgery.

Multidisciplinary Comprehensive Care

The specialists in our Vascular Institute offer expertise in the combined use of endovascular and open surgical techniques, and provide chronic non-healing wound care in collaboration with colleagues at our Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine.

On-Site Imaging

For your convenience, our on-site imaging services include a full array of vascular ultrasound tests by certified vascular sonographers. In addition to FFR-CT, we also offer magnetic resonance angiography for CoW carotid, cardiac nuclear stress testing, and more.
