Heart and vascular care in Kansas City

When faced with a heart condition, you want the very best lifesaving treatments and technology, along with a team of experienced cardiologists.

At Overland Park Regional Medical Center (OPRMC), we have a multidisciplinary team consisting of highly skilled surgeons, cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, nurses and technicians who develop the best treatment plan for every patient.

To speak with one of our cardiologists, schedule an appointment.

Advanced heart care in a community hospital

At OPRMC, we excel in treating cardiovascular disease. Our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons participate in research to discover new techniques to reverse blocked heart arteries, prevent cerebrovascular accidents (strokes) and strengthen weakened hearts.

The HCA Midwest Health clinical research program offers another therapeutic option for patients through clinical trials.

Recognition


The American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) certification demonstrates that this hospital's program aligns with current guidelines for the appropriate and effective early outpatient care of patients with cardiac or pulmonary issues.

Our heart care services

We offer a wide range of cardiac care, including medical management, cardiac catheterization, cardiac rehabilitation and open-heart surgery. Some procedures we perform at Overland Park include the following:

Fenestrated graft for difficult abdominal aortic aneurysm

In an endovascular aortic aneurysm repair, the surgeon places a stent below the kidney arteries. For the graft to seal, there needs to be about one centimeter of the normal aorta. However, about one out of every 10 aneurysms is too close to the kidney arteries to use this approach. Until recently, open surgery or no surgery was the only option for these patients.

At OPRMC, we customize a graft based on your anatomy. This custom graft has holes that line up with the renal arteries that allow the graft to seal without shutting off blood supply to the kidneys. Using this approach, we can treat difficult aortic aneurysms minimally invasively, resulting in a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery.

OPRMC also operates the most extensive abdominal aortic aneurysm stent graft program in the region.

Robotic-assisted angioplasty

We offer robotic-assisted angioplasty, which allows your interventional cardiologist to control the angioplasty tools with increased precision. Your doctor can measure your anatomy to help choose the best stent for you and move the stent a millimeter at a time to position it exactly where it needs to be.

The robotic system also allows for better visualization during the procedure. These benefits may lead to a shorter procedure and less radiation exposure.

Care Connect

We're continually looking for ways to improve healthcare. That’s why we created Care Connect, which makes healthcare easier to navigate. Care Connect helps you find the right care at the right time and keeps you and your loved ones healthy.

Care Assure, one of Care Connect's programs, helps us screen the results of tests performed during an emergency or doctor's visit to identify warning signs and prevent emergencies such as a heart attack or a stroke. If the screens show that you’re at risk for a potential emergency, a specially trained nurse will call you to help connect you to the follow-up care you need to help prevent a future emergency.
