At Conway Medical Center, we work with cardiologists from CPG Waccawmaw Cardiology to ensure the best care possible. CMC offers a state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization laboratory featuring the latest in cardiac diagnostic imaging technology, allowing our team of highly trained and skilled physicians and medical staff to quickly and accurately determine an appropriate course of treatment for patients.
The cardiac cath lab performs diagnostic procedures which include left heart catheterizations, radial approach left heart catheterizations, right heart catheterizations, heart biopsy, pericardialcentesis, permanent pacemaker implants, internal cardiac defibrillator implants, transesophageal echocardiogram, cardioversion, defibrillator threshold testing and tilt table studies.
Other heart services CMC offers includes;
- CMC is the only facility in the tri-county area performing 3D transesophageal echocardiolography to see the heart like never before.
- Electrophysiology Services, a field of cardiac medicine that includes pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibriallators and biventrical pacemaker implants.
- Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA) is able to look at heart vessels to determine any irregularities such as blockages or valve problems.
- CMC offers cardiac catheterization including the less invasive type of radial catheterization. Cardiac catheterization is done to get more information about the heart of blood vessels.
Our center offers the Philips Medical Systems Brilliance 64-slice CT Scanner. In just five heartbeats, doctors are able to gain a good understanding of the patient’s heart health helping them to discover heart disease and its warning signs much earlier than ever before. “For patients with a family history of cardiovascular disease, the new CT scanner can help determine whether or not a person has certain congenital defects, vessel concerns such as plaque buildup or valve problems. This may allow us to treat the patient at a very early stage with lifestyle modification and medication, rather than invasive surgery,” stated Dr. Keith Wyche, cardiologist.

For those who need cardiac rehabilitation, we offer a special program just for heart patients at our Wellness & Fitness Center, which follows guidelines set forth by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
