The Best Heart Services in Southwest Oklahoma

We are proud to provide the best, most comprehensive heart services in Southwest Oklahoma. From our Advanced Certification by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association for Primary Heart Attack Centers, to our state of the art facility and highly knowledgeable  cardiologists- MMG Cardiology is prepared to diagnose and treat some of the most important health concerns for our patients. We treat a variety of problems affecting the heart, veins, and arteries. Some heart conditions are present at birth, and some develop over time.

Some of the most common problems we treat include:

Aortic Aneurysms

The aorta is the large blood vessel that carries blood to the body. An aortic aneurysm occurs when the aorta enlarges or bulges. It may be  due to inherited diseases or longstanding high blood pressure or high cholesterol.


Arrhythmia occurs when your heart beats too fast, too slow, or irregularly.

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

When you have CHF, your heart isn’t pumping enough blood to meet your needs, or it’s pumping at a pressure that’s too high. This causes fluid back up from your heart into other parts of your body.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

CAD is the most common heart disease. It occurs when LDL (“bad” cholesterol) builds up plaque in the heart’s arteries.

Heart Attack

A heart attack is an emergency that usually occurs when a blood clot blocks blood flow to the heart. Without blood, tissue loses oxygen and dies.

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) occurs when arteries in the arms and legs narrow or become blocked by plaque. Plaque is made of extra cholesterol, calcium, and other material in the blood and causes poor blood flow. PAD raises your risk of a heart attack and stroke.


A stroke is a medical emergency that occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced. It prevents brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients.

Valvular Heart Disease

When you have CHF, your heart isn’t pumping enough blood to meet your needs, or it’s pumping at a pressure that’s too high. This causes fluid back up from your heart into other parts of your body.

Your MMG Cardiologist has a variety of procedures and diagnostic procedures available at our state-of-the-art facility to get to the bottom of your heart problem and help you continue to live a full life. Here are some of those common procedures:


Angioplasty is a procedure that opens clogged heart arteries. Angioplasty uses a tiny balloon catheter. Your MMG cardiologist inserts a catheter into a blocked blood vessel. This widens the artery, improving blood flow to the heart.

Exercise Stress Test

An exercise stress test shows how the heart works during physical activity. A stress test usually involves walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike while your blood pressure, breathing and heart rhythm are monitored. 

Valve Repair and Replacement

If the aortic valve is damaged, repairing or artificially replacing it helps to keep blood flowing in the correct direction through the heart.

Carotid Endarterectomy

A carotid endarterectomy removes fatty buildup (plaque) from one of the two carotid arteries. When plaque builds up, it can make it hard for blood to flow to the brain. This surgery helps to lower your risk of stroke by widening the artery.

Nuclear Testing

This test uses radioactive dye and an imaging machine to detect damage and show the blood flow to your heart at rest and while exerting yourself.

Electrophysiology Services (EP)

Electrophysiology services (EP) include highly advanced equipment designed to diagnose and treat abnormal heart rhythms. The tests and procedures focus on the electrical function of the heart and, when possible, includes treatment and ablation of abnormal areas.

Thallium Scan

A thallium scan is a test that uses a radioactive substance known as a tracer to produce images of the heart muscle. The exercise thallium scan is especially useful in diagnosing coronary heart disease. You may also be connected to a Holter monitor. This is used to record your heartbeat and determine if any palpitations occur. A thallium stress test combines nuclear scanning with exercise on a stationary bike or treadmill to assess heart function and discover if there is adequate blood flow.

Prothrombin Time

Prothrombin Time (PT) is a blood test used to determine how long it takes for the body’s blood clotting system to function. It  determines causes of abnormal bleeding or bruising and also monitors treatment with medication that prevents the formation of clots.

Absorbable Stent

The Absorb dissolving heart stent is a remarkable device. It is a drug eluting coronary stent that dissolves, completely and naturally. It treats coronary artery disease like a standard metallic stent. It props the diseased vessel open to restore blood flow and disappears after the artery is healed, It leaves no metal behind to restrict natural vessel motion.

Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery

Coronary bypass surgery redirects blood around a section of an artery in your heart, improving blood flow to your heart muscle. A healthy blood vessel is taken from your arm, chest, or leg and connected beyond the blocked arteries in your heart.

Aneurysm Repair

During this procedure, weakened parts of the aorta are removed and an artificial tube-shaped artificial.

Vascular Bypass

A surgical bypass helps to route blood flow around a blockage caused by peripheral arterial disease (PAD).  The surgery does not cure the disease or remove the blockage.

Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure that allows doctors to determine how well your heart is pumping. A long, thin, flexible tube, called a catheter, is inserted into the body via a blood vessel and directed toward the heart.

Cardiolite Scan

A cardiolite scan is a test that uses a radioactive substance known as a tracer to produce images of the heart muscle. When combined with an exercise test, the cardiolite scan helps determine whether areas of the heart are receiving enough blood. It is useful in diagnosing coronary heart disease and the presence of blockages in the coronary arteries.


An echocardiogram is a type of ultrasound that uses sound waves to take images of your heart. The sound waves are high-pitched and are bounced off of different parts of the heart. These echoes can produce moving pictures on a video screen.


A pacemaker is an implanted medical device that has improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Pacemakers are prescribed for people whose hearts are beating too slowly or irregularly. A pacemaker stimulates the heart muscle with precisely timed discharges.

Cardiac/Peripheral Intervention

During this procedure, a physician uses a catheter, stents and balloons to open arteries that are occluded or narrowed to allow better blood flow in the heart or lower extremities.

Device Implants

During this procedure, the physician makes a small incision and places a small device box in the chest. He or she then threads wires from the vein into the heart to regulate the heartbeat. The physician can insert a pacemaker or a pacemaker/defibrillator.
