Cardiovascular diseases and disorders can keep your heart from functioning properly. When this occurs, it’s time to seek cardiologists who specialize in intervention. Heart disease causes plaque to build up in heart valves, arteries, and blood vessels, which causes them to become blocked or weak. The sole purpose of an Interventional Cardiologist is to intervene before your these valves, arteries and blood vessels become completely blocked by restoring damaged structures before your condition becomes life-threatening.
An Interventional Cardiologist specializes in opening up and unblocking clogged arteries and valves that have been weakened by heart disease. They perform complex procedures. A few of this procedures includes:
One of the main advantages of using the interventional cardiology is for the avoidance of the pain and scars, and long post-operative recovery. A great thing about interventional procedures is that most of the procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. This means that patients can receive medical treatment without being admitted to a hospital. The procedures are minimally-invasive. They don’t leave any visible scars, which we all love, and, are at less risk for infection.
If you have been diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease, Heart Valve Disease or Peripheral Vascular Disease, then you need an experienced Interventional Cardiologist on your side.
