Elective Angioplasty Now Available at Bayshore Medical Center


Hackensack Meridian Bayshore Medical Center can now offer elective angioplasty, a scheduled procedure cardiologists use to open blocked coronary arteries with stents, in patients diagnosed with coronary artery disease.

This minimally invasive treatment restores blood supply to the heart muscle and helps prevent heart attacks, heart failure, and other forms of heart disease.

For many years, Bayshore has provided emergency angioplasties to patients with heart attacks and cardiac catheterization procedures to diagnose heart disease. But, thanks to a recent permit from the New Jersey Department of Health, cardiologists can perform diagnostic tests and, if necessary, necessary treatment during a single visit.

Recently, the medical center successfully completed its first elective case, with the patient now at home and recovering well.

“Residents of Holmdel and surrounding communities have reason to celebrate, as they can now plan life-changing elective angioplasty procedures near their homes,” said Todd Way, Regional President of Hackensack Meridian Central Market. Health. “And, with additional hospitals in the state also becoming licensed, any delay in care that may previously have arisen due to limited patient capacity will be dramatically reduced.”

Bayshore’s Multi-Specialty Cardiac Intervention Suite provides patients with the most advanced cardiac technology, an American College of Cardiology accredited chest pain center with PCI, pacemaker procedures with a 5-star Healthgrades rating, and services cardiac rehabilitation.

Hospitals that perform angioplasty have made agreements with local facilities that offer open heart surgeries for emergencies. The Bayshore Relief Facility is Hackensack Meridian University Jersey Shore Medical Center, the only minimally invasive open heart surgery program in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

“Although elective angioplasty is new to Bayshore, the community can rest assured that the cardiologists and nurses at the medical center are experienced in delivering angioplasty to improve and save the lives of patients,” said Dr. Richard Neibart, Clinical Medical Director, Cardiovascular Care Transformation Service, Hackensack Meridian Health and Chief, Cardiac Surgery, University of Jersey Shore Medical Center. “As part of Hackensack Meridian, Bayshore patients are connected to a full suite of cutting-edge heart disease technologies and world-class cardiac experts right here in New Jersey.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of disability and death in women and men. With this in mind, Hackensack Meridian has developed an interdisciplinary team of award-winning heart specialists. Together, they provide a comprehensive statewide program to identify, treat, and manage heart and vascular conditions for patients of all ages.
