Awards and Accreditations Texas Health Plano advances the speed and accuracy of diagnosis and treatment for heart attack patients, and is continually at the forefront of interventional advancements. Texas Health Plano is designated as a Cycle III Chest Pain Center from the Society of Chest Pain Centers. What does this accreditation mean to you? It means that when you arrive in our emergency services department (ED) with chest pain, we are able to provide you specialized cardiac care within moments of your arrival. Texas Health Plano received this prestigious designation after meeting stringent evaluation by the Society of Chest Pain Centers, which included clinical performance in rapid assessment and for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with varying degrees of heart disease.
Advanced Care An interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients with heart and peripheral vascular problems distinguishes Texas Health Plano. Physicians on the medical staff across specialty areas — cardiology, cardiovascular surgery, vascular surgery and electrophysiology — collaborate to advance care.
Diagnostic Services Physicians on the Texas Health Plano medical staff use various diagnostic tests and procedures to identify whether cardiovascular disease exists, as well as the type and severity of your condition. Services include:
CT - 64-Slice
Cardiac and vascular angiography
Treating Heart and Peripheral Vascular Conditions Following diagnosis, cardiologists on the medical staff may consider options from non-invasive treatments and interventional procedures to specific electrophysiology studies or complex surgical approaches. Our cardiac catheterization labs serve as a focal point for interventional therapy and procedures, such as minimally invasive techniques that help identify and correct life-threatening blockages of the circulatory system.
At Texas Health Plano, we strive to understand and treat peripheral vascular disease. PVD affects the blood vessels that carry blood to the legs, arms, kidneys, stomach or other organ systems. Innovative vascular approaches include minimally invasive angioplasty procedures for blood vessel repair, as well as medication therapy to help reduce the patient's risk of infection, heart attack, stroke and other potentially serious conditions. Interventional vascular procedures include:
Rotational, extractional and directional atherectomy
Permanent pacemaker implantation
Use of defibrillator and resynchronization devices
