What We Do
Interventional cardiologists are physicians who are triple board certified, in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology. These specialists use minimally invasive procedures to treat coronary artery blockages or other heart-related conditions.
Conditions We Treat
Our physician treats numerous forms of cardiovascular disease, including coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease and heart valve disease. He also sees patients with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, unstable angina, heart block and acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Our interventional cardiologist uses cardiac catheterization to evaluate coronary arteries and heart valve function, and determines the necessary forms of treatment. Procedures are performed at a hospital’s cardiac catheterization laboratory on an outpatient basis.
Modes of Treatment
Our interventional cardiologist performs a wide range of procedures to treat cardiovascular disease, including:
Diagnostic coronary angiograms
Stenting (including drug-coated stenting)
ACID (defibrillator) implantation
Endovascular aneurysm repair
Embolic protection, including IVC filter placement
Percutaneous mitral valve repair
Coronary artery bypass grafts
Repair of congenital defects
Why We’re Different
Our highly experienced, board-certified interventional cardiologist has advanced training in vascular medicine, which allows him to perform an array of complex procedures. Patient safety remains our physician’s top priority.
