When you’re experiencing a heart attack and EMS rushes you to the Emergency Department, the clock starts ticking. Research shows that it’s important to get you into angioplasty using a balloon to open the clogged arteries. McLeod records a 52-minute average “Door-to-balloon time.” That’s 38 minutes better than the national standard.
Sealing off unattractive varicose veins, clearing blockages in the arms and legs or preventing critical arteries from bursting, Vascular Specialists concentrate on the body’s cardiovascular system beyond the heart.Learn More
