At Rideout Vascular, we offer a wide range of advanced treatment procedures to address various heart conditions.

From minimally invasive interventions to complex surgical procedures, we strive to deliver the best possible outcomes for our patients.
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
If you require coronary artery bypass grafting, our experienced surgeons will carefully create alternative pathways for blood flow to the heart muscle. This procedure is highly effective in treating severe blockages and restoring normal blood circulation, reducing the risk of heart attacks and other complications.
Angioplasty and Stenting
Angioplasty and stenting are commonly performed procedures to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels. During angioplasty, our skilled interventional cardiologists use a thin catheter with a balloon attached to it to widen the narrowed arteries. Stenting involves placing a small mesh tube called a stent to help keep the artery open and improve blood flow.
Heart Valve Repair/Replacement
If you have a malfunctioning heart valve, our specialized team can perform either valve repair or replacement surgery. Valve repair aims to preserve the natural valve structure, while valve replacement involves replacing the damaged valve with a prosthetic one. Our cardiac surgeons will discuss which option is most suitable for your specific condition.
Post-Operative Care and Recovery Process
After your procedure at Bakersfield Heart Hospital, our dedicated nursing staff will provide attentive post-operative care.
