Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Interventional cardiology is a non-surgical procedure that uses a catheter, a small, flexible tube, to repair damaged or weakened vessels, narrowed arteries or other affected parts of the heart.
Wellstar’s interventional cardiologists use specialized imaging and catheter-based treatments to help patients with heart conditions, and ultimately, to save lives. Our interventional cardiologists use highly skilled and minimally invasive therapies to stop heart attacks in patients without undergoing open-heart surgery. We also treat patients with rhythm disorders and structural heart conditions. These defects decrease the cardiovascular system’s ability to work correctly.
