At Stern Cardiovascular, several of our doctors are interventional cardiologists. With advanced degrees specialized training, and new technologies, they are prepared to use non-surgical diagnostic and treatment methods that are considered minimally invasive. Advantages of using interventional procedures include avoiding scarring, pain and decreasing long post-operative recovery.
Interventional cardiologists access the arteries in your body and in your heart using a minimally invasive technique, either through an artery in your wrist or in your groin. They are skilled at diagnosing abnormalities in your arteries as well as treating blocked arteries that are causing problems. With an interventional procedure, there is a good chance you will go home the same day as your procedure.
