Patients and Caregivers

Chronic chest pain can drastically limit your participation in many of life’s daily activities. Until recently, many patients thought medicines, stints, and bypasses were all that could be done for their angina. Now physicians are using an innovative procedure called Transmyocardial Revascularization or “TMR” to reduce chest pain.
