Coronary Stenting and Coronary Treatment Options
Stents are now used routinely during angioplasty and other revascularization procedures.
A coronary stent is a tube placed in the coronary arteries that supply the heart, to keep the arteries open in the treatment of coronary heart disease. It is used in a procedure called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Identifying the Best Treatment Options and Coronary Stenting Specialist for You
Our commitment at CPMC is to help each patient identify the best doctor for their diagnosis and course of treatment. To find the best specialist for Coronary Stenting , we want to empower our patients to participate in their health care journey. This means encouraging a frank discussion with the doctor about Coronary Stenting, to identify all appropriate treatment options as well as to discuss symptoms, issues, outcomes, etc., when relevant for Coronary Stenting. The first step of your journey is research - using online tools such as CPMC's to investigate and understand Coronary Stenting. The second step is to schedule an initial consultation with a physician or specialist. In some cases, you'll need to go through your primary care physician if you do not have a referral. If you already have a referral,you can schedule an appointment directly with the Coronary Stenting specialist. The third step is for the specialist in Coronary Stenting to meet with you and review your history. As part of the diagnosis, you may need testing, so the doctor (surgeon or specialist) can discuss your treatment options and the both of you can determine your best course of action. We have patients at CPMC coming from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California, and many from throughout the United States with respect to Coronary Stenting. Whether you are from San Francisco, Marin, the San Francisco Bay Area generally or any other location, our physicians will provide the hands-on care you deserve.
