CIS has made a commitment to expand to Baton Rouge, which it has identified as an area in need of additional cardiovascular services and limb salvage care. In fact, the state of Louisiana has one of the highest amputation rates in the United States. CIS hopes to have a substantial impact on the reduction of amputations in Baton Rouge.
CIS has proven to be a leader in treating peripheral arterial disease, advancing non-surgical procedures to eliminate amputations. About 85 percent of amputations can be prevented with proper care and treatment.
CIS is one of the most respected groups of cardiologists, representing nearly every specialty in heart and circulatory medicine. With a team of nearly 450 dedicated team members, CIS serves communities throughout Louisiana, as well as national and international patients, at its 10 clinics. CIS consistently positions itself at the forefront of technology by providing the most up-to-date technology coupled with compassionate care. This mission has guided the institute for more than 27 years of service to south Louisiana. For more information about CIS, call 1-800-425-2565 or visit www.cardio.com.
