About Me

I am board certified in both interventional cardiology and cardiovascular disease. As an interventional cardiologist, I perform tests and nonsurgical procedures to help people with blocked arteries or congenital (from birth) heart disease avoid having open-heart surgery.

 

The most common test I perform is a cardiac catheterization, which gives me direct information about the blood pressures and blood flow patterns within the heart. If a blood vessel blockage is detected, I can often perform angioplasty at the same time. This is a procedure to open the blockage and restore normal blood flow. We often insert a tiny mesh tube (stent) into the artery to keep it open.
