COVID-19 Announcement

Dr. Benigno Decena, electrophysiologist at Pima Heart & Vascular, performed the first ablation procedure at our Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). Dr. Decena used Boston Scientific’s Rhythmia Mapping system and LS Pro Recording system to successfully ablate a supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) arrhythmia.

Ambulatory Surgery Centers – known as ASCs – are modern health care facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventive procedures. Pima Heart and Vascular’s ASC provides a convenient and cost-effective alternative to hospital-based outpatient procedures. The ASC is much smaller than a large hospital, allowing for greater ease of scheduling, reduced costs, and personalized attention. It provides the highest quality cardiovascular outpatient procedures to the patients of Southern Arizona including:

Cardiac catheterization
Pacemaker
Implantable loop recorder
Defibrillator
Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)
Implantable ports
Fistula
