Interventional Cardiology Services

Our skilled cardiologists provide invasive, surgical procedures for the benefit of our patients, in addition to seeing patients in our private offices. Whether performing diagnostic tests like cardiac catheterization and angiography or coronary interventions like angioplasty and stenting, Cardiology Physicians doctors are experienced in providing our patients with the highest quality of care.

We also provide the latest techniques in cardiac electrophysiology (EP), performing pacemaker insertions, radiofrequency ablation, and implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) insertions.

TAVR

TAVR or transcatheter aortic valve replacement is a revolutionary, non-surgical procedure that is bringing new hope to cardiac patients suffering from aortic stenosis. Aortic valve replacement, the most common method for treating aortic valve stenosis, has traditionally required open-heart surgery. Our physicians, working at St. Vincent’s Medical Center, perform this non-surgical alternative, providing an option for patients who may not be candidates for open-heart surgery.

Hybrid Ablation

Hybrid ablation is a combination technique for correction of the heart arrhythmia known as atrial fibrillation or A-fib. Performed by our physicians at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in partnership with renowned cardiothoracic surgeons, hybrid ablation brings together minimally invasive “mini-maze” cardiac surgery with another non-surgical procedure known as transcatheter ablation (TCA).

Appointments

We respect your time and do our very best to honor our appointment schedule. However, due to the unpredictable nature of our specialty, occasional disruptions do occur.

Just as we strive to adhere to our appointment schedule, we ask that our patients do the same. If you need to reschedule your appointment, we ask that you call as soon as you know you have another commitment. In consideration of other patients, we may need to reschedule your appointment if you are more than 10 minutes late.

Please be aware that our nuclear stress tests require that we order isotopes for your test on the day before it is performed. Nuclear medicine cancellations must be made at least a day in advance during regular business hours.
