Interventional Heart Care

Doctors at work in cath lab

Coronary artery disease affects millions of people when there is a problem with the arteries that supply blood to the heart. If you or a loved one has coronary artery disease, the Cardiovascular Institute's expert doctors offer you a full range of non-surgical treatments. 

Our interventional cardiologists perform procedures by using a tube called a catheter to gain access to your heart. Your doctor inserts the catheter into an artery in your arm or leg, and then feeds it up and into your heart. This allows the doctor to take blood samples, measure blood pressure in your heart, take X-rays and repair damage to your coronary arteries so you can return to good health.
