Interventional Cardiology Practice Expands to Accommodate Younger Patients Seeking Prevention

Orlando Heart Specialists opens 8th location in Dr. Phillips/Windermere Area

July 10, 2014 — Orlando Heart Specialists (OHS) has added an 8th location in southwest Orlando, Fla. According to CEO Kishore Ranadive, the interventional cardiology practice is expanding rapidly to accommodate the growing number of patients wisely seeking to prevent heart problems, rather than waiting until treatment is necessary. The new OHS state-of-the art office in the Dr. Phillips/Windermere area is located at 6735 Conroy Rd.

The additional location is a significant business milestone for OHS, making it among the fastest growing independent medical practices in the region and adding a higher level of convenience for its growing patient base.

Founded in 1997, OHS has grown to become the leading cardiology group in this region, earning national respect through its focus on preventive care and superior patient outcomes. One of six practices nationwide, and the only one in Florida, to achieve certification by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), OHS also received the prestigious Bridges to Excellence distinction from the American College of Cardiology for delivering superior patient care.

“This is a proud moment for OHS. Now residents of the Dr. Phillips and Windermere areas will experience why we earn the highest patient satisfaction rates by providing the most positive and caring patient experience possible,” he said.

In addition to the new medical office, OHS also serves patients at its facilities in Altamonte Springs, Orlando, Oviedo, Lake Mary, downtown Orlando, Lake Nona and Apopka. OHS is comprised of board certified cardiovascular specialists dedicated to utilizing the latest technological advances and critical thinking methods in the areas of prevention, intervention, and treatment of heart and vascular disease to help improve the quality of life for their patients.

(B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired before IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in A) demonstrate severe near-circumferential calcification (double-headed arrow) in the area of the stenosis. (C) Angiography demonstrates improvement in the area of stenosis after IVL (inset; note the cavitation bubbles generated by IVL [black arrows]). (D) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (white arrow in C) demonstrate multiple calcium fractures and large acute luminal gain. (E) Angiography demonstrates complete stent expansion with the semicompliant stent balloon (inset) without the need for high-pressure noncompliant balloon inflation. (F) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-stenting and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in E) demonstrate further fracture displacement (arrow), with additional increase in the acute area gain (5.17 mm2), resulting in full stent expansion and minimal malapposition.
