Among one of OakBend Medical Center’s Signature services, the expanding heart and vascular disease program is dedicated to maintaining a healthy community and offers comprehensive care – from stress echocardiogram, carotid ultrasound and nuclear cardiology to coronary artery (CT) scans, diagnostic heart catheterization and automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD).
Most recently the center became the first in the area to offer Spectranetics’ Excimer Laser Ablation System for patients suffering from peripheral artery disease (PAD). The first of its kind, FDA-approved laser procedure for PAD is one of the newest treatment options now available to prevent the progression and reduce the damaging effects of cardiovascular disease.
Under the leadership of Dr. Uttam Tripathy and Dr. Imran Mohiuddin, whose specialties include Adult Cardiac Surgery, General Thoracic Surgery and Peripheral Vascular Surgery, it is easy to understand the rapid recovery times and exemplary success rate patients experience at the center.
Dr. Tripathy and Dr. Mohiuddin work closely with OakBend Medical Center cardiovascular and internal medicine physicians certified by the American Board of Cardiovascular Disease to distinguish the OakBend cardiovascular program and bring the latest information on heart disease and prevention, along with leading edge treatment to patients of the Fort Bend and surrounding community.
Currently OakBend Medical Center offers a state of the art interventional cardiovascular laboratory, where minimally invasive procedures can be performed quickly and comfortably.
