McAllen, Texas – Congratulations to Dr. Guillermo Salinas, Cardiologist and Medical Director of Interventional Cardiology at Rio Grande Regional Hospital, for completing his 50th robotic assisted vascular procedure. Dr. Salinas’s commitment along with the dedicated team of healthcare professionals have worked diligently over the years to provide patients with full-service cardiovascular care.
As a certified Chest Pain and Stroke center, we are proud to use innovative technology to prevent, diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases. Rio Grande Regional Hospital is excited to be the FIRST and ONLY hospital in Hidalgo County to offer the community the most advance in robotic assisted technology used to treat heart and vascular disease. This highly sophisticated and advanced technology allows cardiovascular specialists to treat coronary artery disease, while reducing radiation exposure and allowing for procedural distancing. This means fewer staff members having less contact with the patient for the majority of the procedure. The premier vascular robotic system combines the benefits of coronary angioplasty with the precision of robotics to help widen clogged arteries and restore healthy blood flow to the heart.
We are here to help you with your heart health, because the most important heart you have to take care of is your own.
