Getting to the Heart of the Matter
With a strong family history of cardiac problems, John Zylka knows the signs and symptoms of heart trouble. After several bypass procedures in the early 2000s, he became vigilant about regular visits with his cardiologist, Dr. Lawrence Denino. In 2016, when he experienced shortness of breath and chest tightness, he wasted no time in contacting Dr. Denino. After a few quick tests, he found himself at Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital for a catheterization followed by a rotoblation, a high risk procedure with interventional cardiologist Dr. Nevin Baker. Given Excela's recognition in heart care nationally, John had no doubts about putting his heart in Excela's expert hands, especially since Excela ranks in the top 10% for medical excellence in heart attack treatment. No one ranks higher in Western PA*. Now John is the #PictureofHealth.
