State-of-the-Art Vascular Surgery Service Expansions

As a vascular surgeon at Pardee, Dr. Hobson is excited about the impact the expansion of vascular and interventional radiology services will have on patient care. With the addition of new technology as well as an improved interventional radiology and vascular suite.

“The updates made to our interventional radiology and vascular suite are significant,” says Dr. Hobson, “With the minimally invasive interventions now possible in this suite, we are able to help our patients avoid limb amputation due to a blocked vessel and avoid lengthier and more invasive surgeries.”

Lifesaving Care for Heart Attacks

Pardee was recently designated a Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Hospital by the North Carolina EMS Medical Director, demonstrating its capability to ensure quality 24/7 ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) care. The designation formally recognizes the collection of personnel and procedures in place to handle serious heart attacks, further enhancing the scale of cardiac care available at the hospital.

“Pardee has demonstrated a commitment to a high-quality primary PCI program for patients in Hendersonville and surrounding counties who are having a heart attack,” says Dr. Fontana, an interventional cardiologist at Pardee. “The goal is to minimize time to revascularization, which correlates with survival and preserved heart function.”
