In brief: Special heart doc.

An interventional cardiologist is a specialized cardiologist.
He or she has met all the requirementsfor general cardiology and passed the general cardiology boards. Then a special fellowship requiring several years is spent to lend expertise in the ability to open and dilate blood vessels with things like stents, or do procedures involving heart valaves or other complex, invasive treatments.

We are the the type of cardiologist that treat patients having acute chest pain and/or heart attacks. We do angiograms (take pictures) of heart arteries and assess for the extent of narrowing or blockage in the arteries. Based on what we find, we can treat with balloons and stents.
