Providence Tarzana is first in the San Fernando Valley to Perform Carotid Stent Procedure

April 03, 2014
Providence Tarzana was the first hospital in the Valley certified to perform a carotid stent procedure, making the most advanced treatment option available for those with a blocked carotid artery. What traditionally was an open procedure requiring a longer recovery, this minimally invasive procedure is completed in the special procedures lab with the patient typically returning home in a day. The excellent outcomes led to this program being ranked number one in the state of California and among the top five percent in the nation for quality outcomes. This is one more feather in the cap of the award-wining heart institute at Providence Tarzana.
