Interventional cardiologists belong to a special branch of cardiology that uses minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures to treat cardiovascular disease. These procedures are performed in the cardiac catheterization lab, also called the cath lab.
Interventional cardiologists at Roosevelt Hospital use thin, flexible catheters or tubes, usually guided to the heart through an artery in the groin, to perform diagnostic tests, evaluate and treat blocked or narrowed coronary and carotid arteries and heart valves, determine the strength of heart muscle, or repair damaged coronary blood vessels and other structures. The interventional cardiologist views the advancement of the catheter on its way to the heart on a video monitor.
Members of our interventional cardiology team—physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and technicians—are present at every step during these procedures to attend to the needs of each patient, with the highest levels of proficiency and compassion.
Interventional cardiology procedures include:
In addition to interventional heart procedures, our catheterization
laboratory has the expertise to treat peripheral arterial disease, including
artery blockages in the legs, kidneys, and neck, without surgery.
