An in-office non-invasive therapy to treat patients with coronary artery disease and/or congestive heart failure who are not suitable candidates for surgery. During ECP treatment, the patient’s lower body is secured with special cuffs that pulse in time with the rhythm of the patient’s heart. The treatment increases coronary blood flow allowing more oxygen to reach the heart muscle, and, over time, improving coronary circulation. ECP therapy is not widely available in the Brooklyn/Queens area. We are proud to be able to offer this innovative treatment as it can significantly improve the well-being of patients with advanced heart disease.
