Interventional Cardiology

Interventional CardiologyEmory Heart & Vascular Center interventional cardiologists are using innovative techniques and the latest research and technology to find even more ways to successfully treat cardiovascular disease in the least invasive ways possible.

Interventional cardiology refers to minimally invasive procedures used to diagnose and treat coronary artery and peripheral arterial disease. These procedures use catheters (thin, flexible tubes) and imaging technology to place therapeutic devices and perform lifesaving treatments that would otherwise require open surgery.
