Pediatric EKG/ECHO services are available, and St. Lawrence Health System is affiliated with Crouse Hospital Pediatric Cardiology for interpretations. 

State-of-the-Art Treatment for Angina

EECP therapy (Enhanced External Counter Pulsation therapy) is a safe and effective outpatient therapeutic alternative to invasive procedures and it may help alleviate painful angina episodes. It uses large blood-pressure-type cuffs that wrap around the legs and buttocks and gently apply pressure to improve circulation from the lower part of your body back to your heart.

Good Candidates for EECP Therapy

  • If medications no longer relieve your angina symptoms
  • you have had open-heart (bypass) surgery
  • you have had a balloon angioplasty or stent, and your symptoms have returned
  • if you have chosen not to have any more invasive procedures

To learn more, call (315) 261-5985 and ask to speak with one of our EECP therapists. EECP Therapy is provided at Canton-Potsdam Hospital, 50 Leroy Street, Potsdam.
