Interventional Cardiology at OhioHealth
World-Renowned Expertise, Innovation and Leadership
OhioHealth interventional cardiologists combine their extensive experience with clinical excellence and state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat heart and vascular conditions in the safest and most effective way possible.
Our patients benefit from
the depth and volume of experience our physicians have in treating the full spectrum of heart and vascular conditions. In fact, we perform more interventional procedures than any hospital in central Ohio or the region.
Advanced Cardiovascular Treatments
Using the latest technologies — many of which they helped develop — our physicians treat patients using the least invasive options available. This may include accessing the heart through the wrist or replacing a heart valve through a tiny incision in the leg.
Our interventional cardiologists are highly skilled at using small catheters, advanced imaging and tiny incisions to treat many conditions minimally invasively. These minimally invasive treatments lead to a quicker recovery, shorter hospital stays, better survival and improved quality of life for our patients.
Some of the conditions we treat include:
- Myocardial infarction (Heart attack)
- Coronary artery disease
- Coronary artery chronic total occlusion (CTO)
- Structural heart/heart valve diseases
- Heart failure
- Vascular and peripheral vascular disease, including abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), carotid artery disease and peripheral artery disease (PAD)
A Commitment to Improving Patient Care
Our physicians are driven by their commitment to being pioneers in the field of heart and vascular disease. They recognize that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to treating our patients and are always seeking better ways to improve patient care.
They are known internationally for being on the leading edge of the latest innovations. They are often asked to present and broadcast cases live from our catheterization labs to learning conferences around the world, as well as consult and teach our techniques to other physicians.
We are also active participants in nearly 100 clinical research trials evaluating the newest treatments and techniques. From bioabsorbable stents to replacing heart valves with catheters to saving a leg by opening a blocked artery with a balloon, many of the devices we have used in clinical trials have gone on to be approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for general use.
The vascular system leads to the heart, brain and other major organs. Our specialists focus on the whole body in treating your vascular disease.
Our alert system notifies our emergency and heart care teams of an incoming heart attack so we are ready to treat you the moment you arrive at the hospital.
