About Interventional Cardiologists
An interventional cardiologist is a cardiologist who specializes in minimally invasive, catheter-based treatment for heart disease. Balloons and stents are used to open up arteries in the neck, carotids, heart, legs and kidneys that have become blocked, causing chest or leg pain, heart attack, stroke and non-healing leg ulcers. Interventionists treat cardiovascular diseases such as angina, coronary heart disease, heart valve disorders and vascular diseases of the legs, kidneys and brain.
