Hear What Our Patients
Have to Say About Us.
We offer in-office, same-day, and hospital services, including, but not limited to: Cardiovascular Risk Assessment and Disease Prevention. Our heart specialists diagnose and treat a range of conditions; some of the most common include:
Coronary Artery Disease
An irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that is often rapid and can lead to poor blood flow, atrial fibrillation occurs when the upper two chambers of the heart called the atria receive abnormal electrical signals.
Peripheral Artery Disease
Also called peripheral vascular disease, PAD is a circulatory condition that causes narrowing of the blood vessels that carry blood to the limbs; it often causes pain in the extremities.
Also called venous reflux, this condition is characterized by inadequate blood flow through the veins, which causes blood to pool in the legs; venous insufficiency is most often caused by blood clots or varicose veins.
What is Interventional Cardiology?
Interventional cardiology is the subspecialty of cardiology that uses specialized catheter-based techniques to diagnose and treat coronary artery disease, vascular disease, structural heart disease, and congenital heart defects.
Interventional cardiologists use various diagnostic tools and imaging techniques to measure cardiovascular functions such as blood pressure and blood flow in major arteries throughout the body and within the different chambers of the heart.
Interventional cardiologists do not perform traditional “open” heart surgeries.
Using cutting-edge technology and the newest techniques and complex advancements in this field of medicine — such as cardiac catheterization, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), and mitral valve replacement and repairs — interventional cardiologists perform delicate life-saving and life-enhancing procedures to treat patients with heart disease, valve defects, or structural abnormalities.
