Helping you have a healthier heart—that's the goal of every single cardiologist, heart surgeon and cardiac nurse at Emanate Health.
One of the hallmarks of our exceptional heart care is our ability to provide world-class heart attack treatment. Our team can open a blocked artery within just 90 minutes of paramedics performing the first electrocardiogram in the field. That makes our heart attack treatment faster than any other hospital in the San Gabriel Valley. It's also earned us special designation as a STEMI (ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction) Receiving Center.
Here are some of the other services and facilities that make Emanate Health the right choice when you have a heart health need.
Cardiac catheterization is an imaging procedure that lets your cardiologist check your heart for any malfunctions or blockages, and plan the appropriate course of treatment. Our team has the experience that comes with performing more than 1,000 of these procedures every year.
The Emanate Health structural heart program helps repair structural problems in your heart. Our skilled cardiology team uses minimally invasive procedures that correct your heart problem without requiring open-heart surgery or temporarily stopping your heart.
Here are the common procedures we perform:
Otherwise known as transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR), MitraClip helps correct a malfunctioning mitral valve that's causing an abnormal backflow of blood in your heart. With MitraClip, a catheter is placed in a vein in your groin and ran up to the vein in your heart. A small clip is delivered through the catheter to the center of your mitral valve, which helps reduce the backflow of blood in your heart.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
This procedure treats aortic stenosis. When a person has aortic stenosis, their heart has to work harder to push blood through an abnormally small valve. TAVR alleviates symptoms by replacing a diseased aortic valve with an artificial one. To do so, a catheter is placed in the femoral artery and the new valve is delivered to the heart via the catheter. Once the valve is placed correctly, the catheter is removed and the insertion site is closed.
