Cardiologists treat cardiovascular conditions of the heart, arteries, and veins. Initially you may be treated medically with proper medication. If your condition requires treatment beyond what medicine can address, you will be referred to an interventional cardiologist or possibly a surgeon.
Interventional cardiologists perform minimally invasive procedures via catheterization through the arteries with the use of imaging equipment. Catheterization procedures are typically painless. Common procedures include angioplasty to clear blocked arteries and ablation to correct atrial fibrillation.
Interventional radiologists perform minimally invasive procedures via catheterization through the arteries with the use of imaging equipment. Catheterization procedures are typically painless. Common procedures include ablation to remove tumors, embolization to stop hemorrhaging, thrombolysis to clear blood clots, and stenting to prevent stroke.
Electrophysiologists specialize in the mechanics, function and performance of the electrical activities of the heart. They perform interventional and surgical procedures to treat heart rhythm disturbances called arrhythmias.
Vascular surgeons reconstruct diseased areas of the vascular system (arteries and veins). Common diseases treated are aortic repair, dissections, stenting and laser arthrectomy.
Cardiothoracic surgeons treat disease of the heart and its vessels. Common procedures include coronary bypass, valve repair, ablation, and various thoracotomy procedures to treat cardiac and cancerous conditions in the thoracic cavity.
