Specialties & Treatments

Western Wyoming Medical specializes in cardiovascular and outpatient surgical services, offering treatment and procedures from our facility located in Lander, Wyoming.

Our acclaimed and experienced team offers world-class medical service and care—more accessible than ever before for patients located in rural communities.

Why choose us?

Our choice of location and our approach to care are significantly defined by our unique understanding of the Western Wyoming climate and lifestyle—making us more in tune with you and your needs than other larger urban care providers.

We’re partnering with local clinics to create continuity across each patient’s healthcare experience, empowering our patients to have an active, confident role in their treatment from start to finish.

Outpatient Surgical Services

Outpatient Services at Western Wyoming Medical provide an integrated multidisciplinary care for patients with cardiac and vascular diseases. We offer:

  • 5 days per week access to our cardiovascular center.
  • Advanced cardiac catheterization laboratory procedures for evaluation and treatment of heart and vascular diseases.
  • New innovative treatment strategies like radial artery catheterization and stent implantation (implanting stents in the heart arteries through artery at the wrist).
  • Access for specialized management for chronic diseases like heart failure, hypertension and peripheral arterial disease.

Coronary & Vascular Interventions

Interventions are common medical procedures that can be used to open blocked or narrowed coronary (heart) arteries. The procedure improves blood flow to the heart muscle, and may improve the following:

  • Coronary heart disease (CHD) including Angina (chest pain or discomfort) or shortness of breath
  • Reduce damage to the heart muscle caused by a heart attack
  • Reduce the risk of death in some patients

Ultrasound & Imaging Procedures

Ultrasound is a safe, painless procedure that uses sound waves to examine the blood flow through the carotid arteries.

Carotid ultrasound tests for blocked or narrowed carotid arteries, which can increase the risk of stroke. The results can help us determine a treatment to lower your stroke risk.

Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have emerged as imaging options for noninvasive evaluation of the heart. *These procedures are not provided at the Western Wyoming Medical facility.

Coronary CT angiography (CCTA) represents an examination which visualizes the presence and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD) in a noninvasive procedure.
