Dr. Ronald H. Fields implants first Bioabsorbable Stent in the Philadelphia region.
Dr. Ronald Fields implants first Bioabsorbable Stent in the Philadelphia region. A new generation of stents is now available. Unlike current stents, these new stents dissolve over the course of about 18 months, leaving a normal artery behind. This prevents clots from forming on the stents, which is a small but real risk with the current stents that are used today.
This is the first advancement in stent technology in over a decade. Dr. Fields and Dr. Hussain are now very experienced in utilizing this new technology.
