Bolingbrook, IL – Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital is proud to announce the appointment of Dr. Dominick Stella as director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory/vascular laboratory. Dr. Stella is an interventional cardiologist who is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease with a certificate of additional qualification in interventional cardiology. He also practices interventional vascular medicine and has performed more than 100 carotid stenting procedures and more than 50 minimally invasive repairs of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
Dr. Stella has been practicing medicine since 2002 and earned his medical degree at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine.
“Dr. Stella has excellent credentials and is committed to our mission of providing whole-person care and promoting wellness,” said Rick Mace, CEO of Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital.
As director of the cath lab, Dr. Stella already has performed the hospital’s first cardiac catheterization procedure on a male patient in his 60s. The patient did extremely well.
Earlier this month, the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board approved the hospital’s request for cardiac cath services, providing critical access close to home for residents in and around Will County.
Cardiac catheterization is a procedure that helps guide physicians in choosing the best, most effective treatment for patients with heart disease. During the procedure, a physician uses digital images to identify potential blockages in the arteries. If an artery is found to be narrowed or blocked, the physician can use several techniques to improve blood flow.
“Our goal is providing the best and most technologically advanced care to our patients at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital,” Stella said.
Dr. Stella’s brothers, Ronald and Joseph, also are cardiologists and belong to the same practice, Heart Care Centers of Illinois, with offices throughout the southwest suburbs.
