Southeast Georgia Health System strives to deliver advanced technology to meet the healthcare needs of our community. Most recently, the Health System began offering a new treatment for patients with severely calcified coronary artery disease.
The condition occurs when calcium builds in the heart’s two primary arteries — the coronary arteries. It happens after plaque (fat and cholesterol) begins to form (atherosclerosis) after a number of years. It’s a more extreme form of cardiovascular disease that has become common.
