Interventional cardiology is a subspecialty of cardiology focused on management and treatment of cardiovascular disease through insertion of tools into the body, such as catheters, balloons and stents. Common interventional cardiology procedures include angioplasty, atherectomy and valvuloplasty. Patients undergo these types of procedures in our cardiac catheterization labs.

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
If you have severely blocked arteries, even if you have been told that "nothing can be done," you may have a condition called chronic total occlusion (CTO). Community Health Network interventional cardiologists specialize in minimally invasive heart procedures for blocked arteries that do not require open-heart surgery.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
Community Heart and Vascular Hospital offers transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), an FDA-approved procedure appropriate for patients with aortic valve stenosis who are not candidates for open surgery to replace their natural aortic valve.
