Whether you need a cardiologist to evaluate your heart health or to perform an advanced cardiac procedure, you can place your trust in the specialists at Southeast Georgia Health System. Our cardiologists have many years of experience diagnosing and treating heart conditions. If you have a heart problem, the expert, personalized care our team provides may add both quality and years to your life.
We offer a variety of outpatient cardiology consultation services at our Brunswick Campus physician practice, including:
Heart disease risk assessments. Do you have a family history of heart disease or other reasons to be concerned about your heart health? Our team can determine your heart disease risk and help you work to lower it.
Heart evaluations. You can see our cardiologists if you experience signs and symptoms of a new heart condition or worsening symptoms of an existing one.
Help managing heart disease or its risk factors. Many heart problems can be mitigated with medications and healthy lifestyle changes. Our cardiologists can assist you with medication management and empower you with the knowledge and encouragement necessary for you to live your best life. Coronary heart disease, heart rhythm problems, heart failure, high blood pressure and high cholesterol are just a few of the conditions our experts can help you with.
Pre-surgery evaluations. If you need surgery, our cardiologists can help determine if your heart is healthy enough for an operation.
Comprehensive heart testing
If your primary care provider or cardiologist think you need a test to determine if you have a heart problem, we can provide that test for you. Our testing capabilities include:
Diagnostic tests, such as stress and tilt table tests, echocardiography, electrocardiogram (EKG/ECG), and Holter monitoring.
Coronary artery calcium testing, which helps assess your risk for heart disease before you have symptoms so that you and your cardiologist can develop a preventive treatment plan.
Our team performs the latest cardiac procedures in our cardiac catheterization laboratories (cath labs). In these facilities, our specialists treat heart disease with catheters instead of surgery, and patients often go home the same day as their procedure. The treatments we provide include:
- Balloon angioplasty and heart stent placement procedures, which are performed to open blocked arteries.
- Intravascular lithotripsy (IVL). This innovation procedure allows our cardiologists to safely break up calcium in your arteries and restore blood flow using soundwaves. Sometimes this procedure eliminates the need for open-heart surgery.
- Pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) insertions and generator changes. These devices help the heart beat at a normal rate and rhythm.
- Cardioversion. This procedure shocks the heart back into a normal rhythm when people experience atrial fibrillation.
