Have you been considering ECP Therapy as an alternative to surgery for your heart condition? If you live in the Western New York area, then Sterling Heart Care is your exclusive provider. We practice ECP therapy because we believe it can be an excellent choice over invasive options.
Is ECP Therapy better than surgery?
The two options are very different, but one isn’t necessarily better than the other. Some patients might make excellent candidates for getting stents or surgery, while other patients don’t, sometimes because of their age or health. Other patients just don’t want to consider invasive surgery, while others still simply want an alternative. ECP Therapy can be an excellent alternative for a variety of reasons.
For example, ECP Therapy is a form of therapy. It’s about helping your body help itself so it can pump blood more effectively. This is a more natural way of treating a heart condition, and many patients appreciate that.
The procedure is non-invasive, so medication, needles, and incisions are not involved at all. The treatment is administered outside of your body and is painless. ECP Therapy takes about 1 hour, and a single treatment can offer benefits lasting for up to 3 years. After that, simply get another treatment.
What are the benefits of getting ECP Therapy?
ECP Therapy can help alleviate many of the symptoms of heart disease and other heart conditions. For example, we can treat angina, dyspnea, and fatigue here at Sterling Heart Care.
Also, the therapy can temporarily enhance your heart’s ability to circulate oxygenated blood to the rest of your body. The therapy does this by helping to clear blocked coronary arteries, and by reactivating inactive blood vessels. By clearing blockages and creating new routes of circulation, blood flow increases, not just in the heart but throughout the whole body.
As a result, many of your symptoms can be alleviated, especially chest pain. Some patients can even get approval from their doctor to decrease the dosage of their medications. Many patients report that they feel better and experience a greater quality of life after treatment. They’re able to exercise again and get back into activities they had been missing!
