Brachytherapy

Almost 15% of people who have had their coronary disease treated with a stent may experience blockage inside the stent or restenosis.  When this happens, you may experience the same symptoms you had before the stent was placed.  Our specialty trained Cardiologists may recommend brachytherapy to you. 

Brachytherapy is commonly used to treat cancers, but can also be used to treat narrowing arteries inside coronary stents.  There are only a few hospitals in the US that use this treatment.  Augusta University Medical Center is the only hospital in the area that offers intravascular brachytherapy.

Brachytherapy is a minimally invasive procedure where a radioactive seed in implanted beside the plaque which is limiting the blood flow.

Treatment plans for restenosis are very individualized.  Our expert Interventional Cardiologists will discuss the treatment options best for you.

Understanding Heart Disease

Lifestyle changes, medications, and a variety of non-surgical and surgical procedures may be recommended by our team, including advanced practice providers. After a comprehensive diagnosis and physical exam for your particular condition, we work with you to design an individualized treatment plan that is ideal for your heart and lifestyle.

If you are at risk of developing heart disease, our cardiologists can educate you on how to reduce your risk factors and improve the overall health of your heart.
