Interventional cardiologists use catheter-based treatments to remove or reduce blockages in the arteries to the heart.
Because the heart is such an important part of the body, we have BJC Medical Group of Illinois (formerly known as Memorial Medical Group) interventional cardiologists here for you. BJC Medical Group of Illinois and Memorial Network-affiliated interventional cardiologists most often treat coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, or peripheral vascular disease.
Because they use catheter-based treatments, our interventional cardiologists have access to the state-of-the-art technology offered by the Memorial Network's cardiac cath labs. Through our hospitals interventional cardiologists can perform balloon angioplasty, implant carotid stents to prevent stroke, and much more.
