Interventional Cardiology Program

Program Overview

Interventional cardiology refers to minimally invasive procedures used to diagnose and treat coronary artery and peripheral arterial disease. These procedures use catheters (thin, flexible tubes) and imaging technology to place therapeutic devices and perform lifesaving treatments that would otherwise require open surgery.

When you have a heart condition, you want the most effective treatment with the least risk. Our specialists are known for developing innovative techniques to diagnose and treat your heart problem without open surgery. Over the years our physicians and researchers have revolutionized the field of interventional cardiology. When it comes to the heart, expertise matters most. Our cardiac catheterization laboratories are staffed by board-certified physicians, experienced nurses and specially trained technologists who provide patients with high-quality care and a full range of effective treatments for cardiac and vascular diseases.

Important Benefits

For you, that means the highest level of treatment with many benefits. Since the minimally invasive treatment uses tiny incisions, there is less blood loss and a lower risk of infection than open surgery. You’ll also go home sooner and have less pain and a faster recovery.

Experts Working Together
