Overview of heart procedures performed at Sharp in San Diego.
Sharp's award-winning cardiac services deliver excellence in patient care, including nonsurgical care, minimally invasive (interventional) treatment and surgical procedures. Only you and your doctor can determine what treatment option is right for you. Your treatment plan will be designed to meet your individual needs and help you live longer and healthier.
Research shows that interventional cardiology and electrophysiology procedures are very effective in eliminating blockages in the coronary arteries, correcting abnormal heart rhythms, placing lifesaving pacemakers and placing automatic defibrillators. Minimally invasive procedures require only a small incision and are often less risky, produce less pain and result in a faster, easier recovery than surgery.
