LARGO – A new Interventional Vascular Lab recently opened at Largo Medical Center, 201 14th St. NW.
In this lab, physicians can treat their patients who have vascular conditions ranging from diseases of the veins, arteries and lymph vessels to blood disorders that affect a person’s circulation.
“Largo Medical Center continues to recognize the need for and implement the use of diagnostic techniques, using state-of-the art, leading-edge technology,” said Anthony Degina in a press release. Degina is CEO of Largo Medical Center. “Some of this lab’s incredible technology includes tools specifically developed for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease and for use in interventional procedures that are ancillary to the heart.”
Some of the area’s most well-respected cardiologists, cardiovascular thoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, electrophysiologists and other specialists will be using this lab.
“A highlight of all the new high-tech imaging is that it includes a low dose radiation viewing system with 3-D capabilities,” said Brenda Simpson, chief nursing officer at Largo Medical Center. “It will minimize risks for our patients by giving surgeons access to the vascular system of veins, arteries and capillaries like never before.”
Largo Medical Center is a Joint Commission accredited, 425-bed statutory teaching hospital serving the community from two campuses. Visit www.LargoMedical.com.
