Heart and Vascular Care
Coronary Artery Disease
An expert heart team by your side.
At Sharp, we offer the widest spectrum of heart and vascular treatments in San Diego — setting the standard of care with our highly skilled and compassionate doctors. When it comes to treating coronary artery disease (CAD), our cardiovascular teams are the best in the region.
Treat your condition with the latest technology.
We offer the most advanced — and least invasive — cardiovascular surgical techniques so that you can experience the quickest recovery possible. These procedures are designed to treat narrowed coronary arteries and improve blood flow to the heart.
Under the care of our experienced doctors, our minimally invasive treatments allow for quicker recovery times, smaller scars and reduced risk of infection.
We treat CAD with the following methods:
Angioplasty and bioresorbable stents
At a leader in technology, we offer a new approach to treating CAD. A bioresorbable stent is inserted in the vessel to open narrowed arteries during the critical healing period — and gradually reabsorbs into the body within months, leaving no permanent implant.
Coronary artery bypass surgery
Our doctors are seasoned in the traditional approach of coronary artery bypass surgery, in which blood flow is diverted around an obstructed artery in your heart. By creating a new pathway to the heart, normal blood flow is restored.
Off-pump bypass surgery
In this procedure, our doctors perform the traditional bypass surgery without the use of a heart-lung machine, or without having to stop your heart. This method can greatly reduce the risk of stroke and other complications.
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
