Your Local Heart and Vascular Team
MidMichigan’s comprehensive Heart and Vascular Program is served by an experienced team of physicians and advanced practice providers with MidMichigan Physicians Group. These include cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, heart failure and structural heart specialists, as well as vascular and cardiovascular surgeons. So, where do you go, when you need heart and vascular care? You don’t need to go far, because you have a local, board certified go-to team ready to serve you.
Additionally, a wide variety of diagnostic cardiac and vascular tests are available locally through the MidMichigan Medical Center - Alpena. These include diagnostic cardiac catheterization, CT angiography, exercise and nuclear stress tests, echocardiograms, electrocardiograms (EKGs), Holter monitoring, carotid ultrasound, Doppler studies, ankle brachial index (ABI), vein mapping, arterial assessments and others. Should more advanced treatment become necessary, MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland provides streamlined access to a full range of interventional procedures like angioplasty and stenting, structural heart procedures like TAVR, MitraClip™ and Watchman™, as well as minimally-invasive open heart surgery.
One of the best reasons to make MidMichigan your home for heart and vascular care is that we offer a full continuum of care close to home. This saves time, avoids duplicate paperwork and testing, and provides smoother transition to local recovery options such as home care, cardiac rehabilitation and follow-up appointments..
