Texas Health Plano’s cardiovascular service line offers operating suites dedicated to heart and vascular surgery, cardiac catheterization lab, surgical procedures, and a vascular screening program. The hospital also offers advanced technology such as CV Airstrip, which enables physicians to see an EKG real time on a mobile device.
