Board-certified diagnostic, interventional and electrophysiology cardiologists affiliated with Memorial Hermann Cypress work with a dedicated staff of caregivers to offer prevention, diagnostic treatment and interventional procedures for a spectrum of heart-related conditions.
Integrated Cardiac Catheterization Lab
In our integrated cardiac catheterization lab, we can quickly determine whether a patient with heart disease requires specialized treatment. The cath lab provides affiliated physicians and staff with advanced diagnostic and therapeutic imaging tools that deliver streamlined data and precise, relevant images and information. Your cardiologist will have the capability to view these images from anywhere.
Comprehensive Cardiac and Vascular Care
Our program includes noninvasive and invasive cardiology and peripheral invasive radiology. If a higher level of care is needed, patients, including heart attack patients, can be stabilized at Memorial Hermann Cypress and quickly transported via Life Flight® to other Memorial Hermann facilities.
