We've got your best interest at heart.
The MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute at Long Beach Medical Center offers the latest in advanced technologies, nationally recognized physicians and innovative treatments to provide the complete continuum of cardiovascular care.
Our best practice treatments, research and support programs are delivered with the latest technology in dedicated catheterization laboratories and operating rooms configured to fulfill the unique requirements of cardiovascular medicine.
Our care team diagnoses cardiovascular disease using the most advanced, non-invasive, and minimally invasive approaches. We use the latest in cardiovascular imaging equipment to provide a high-quality, integrated approach.
We offer the least invasive ways to care for complex cardiovascular issues through a minimally invasive first approach with catheters or tiny incisions. Utilizing the least invasive surgical techniques and specialized equipment, our cardiovascular surgeons perform the same lifesaving procedures while avoiding traditional open-heart surgery allowing patients to get back to their lives quicker by saving healthy tissue, reducing scarring and bleeding, and accelerating recovery time.
Cardiothoracic surgeons at Long Beach Medical Center use the da Vinci® Xi™ - the latest robotic-assisted surgical system on the market – to provide additional minimally invasive treatment options. The da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System gives surgeons a 3D visualization of the operating field with more precision and better optics. The surgical instruments give surgeons more freedom of movement, giving physicians access to hard-to-reach spots.
Through cutting-edge cardiac research, many of the newest and best treatment opportunities and technologies are available for our patients. By providing medications, devices, and therapies to the community – long before they become available elsewhere – makes our MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute a recognized leader in innovative, quality cardiac care.
We participate in the most scientifically sound protocols in cardiovascular research and is dedicated to offering qualified patients the latest treatment options available through innovation in medications, devices, and procedures.
Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is designed to help those with heart conditions recover, as well as resume, develop, and/or maintain an active, heart-healthy lifestyle. Patients have access to nutritional counseling, structured exercise, risk factor modification, and educational opportunities.

Aortitis entails inflammatory changes in the aortic wall that causes necrosis and destruction of structural elements of the vessel wall.
Congenital heart disease is a heart condition where the structure of the heart and vessels do not form correctly during fetal development in the uterus. Defects can form in the walls of the heart, heart valves, and arteries and veins leading to the heart.
Heart failure, sometimes known as Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), occurs when the heart can't pump enough to the rest of the body. If the heart muscle cannot pump enough blood, it cannot meet the body's needs for blood and oxygen. The heart is a pump that circulates the blood throughout the body.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technology platform that aids cardiologists in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The C7-XR™ OCT intravascular imaging technology utilizes near-infrared light to create images that go beyond previous coronary imaging technologies.
Computed tomography (CT scan) technology uses X–rays and complex computers to create cross–sectional "slice" images of the body. Each image provides detailed internal views of the body at the specific location or slice, including the heart and blood vessels.
Computed tomography angiography is an exam that uses a contrast (dye) that is placed into the blood stream so that vessels in the body can be seen when an internal image is taken. With Computed Tomography (CT) scanning you will lie on a CT examination table as it moves through the scanner.

Valvuloplasty is a minimally invasive procedure performed to increase the opening of a narrowed or defective valve in the heart. This procedure is performed in a cardiovascular catheterization laboratory.
CABG (pronounced like the word "cabbage") stands for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting. Coronary artery bypass (CABG) surgery, also referred to as Coronary Revascularization, reroutes blood flow around a blockage in the coronary artery so the heart muscle can maintain a good blood supply.
Endovascular surgery – operating from inside the blood vessel – is performed through tiny holes, rather than through large external incisions.
Selecting specialists to treat your heart and vascular disease or condition is an important decision to make. When selecting a team of physicians it is important to look for specialists who are highly trained in their fields. The comprehensive teams of expert heart and vascular care specialists at MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institutes located in Orange County and Los Angeles County are devoted to innovative heart care to improve the lives of residents in Southern California.
