Dr. Murry Drescher, the Milestone Medical Group cardiologist, has been recognized by US News & World Report as “One of America’s Top Doctors.” He received his MD from Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He completed his Fellowships in Critical Care and Cardiology at University of Miami.
Dr. Dresher is one member of the exclusive cardiology physician team who perform cardiology services only at Longmont United Hospital. An exclusive cardiology team gives the communities the Hospital serves the opportunity to receive the fastest and safest emergency cardiac care. Our cardiology physicians are very close in proximity when on call. The Cardiac Catheterization Lab team works together every day to provide the best care for our patients.
Patients who need cardiac catheterization at Longmont United Hospital now have access to an exciting alternative to the conventional, through-the-groin approach: transradial catheterization. This innovative technology will provide you with a very short recovery time. Often it allows you to get up and move about after the procedure ends. Dr. Dresher has years of experience with transradial artery access, ask him about it.
If you have experienced rapid heartbeat, dizziness, or syncope (fainting), you may have developed an irregular heartbeat, called arrhythmia. Arrhythmia is extremely common, particularly among people over 50. Ambulatory Heart Monitoring ACT automatically captures and transmits critical data on an irregular heartbeat, whether or not you feel a symptom. When an irregular heart rhythm occurs, the system will transmit the EKG waveform to a Monitoring Center, where the data is analyzed.
If it is decided that you need invasive testing, the Hospital has two catheterization labs and healthcare professionals who have worked together as a team for many years, assuring prompt, first-rate care.
If you have a blocked artery, we offer Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, balloons and stents, to get you home as soon as possible. We also offer Pacemaker and Pacemaker/defibrillator implantation for Cardiac Rhythm Management issues.
