Interventional cardiologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of several types of heart disease using catheter-based treatment.
A number of heart procedures can be performed using catheterization. This typically involves inserting a sheath into the femoral artery, radial artery, or any other large peripheral artery or vein, and then inserting a catheter into the heart under X-ray visualization.

Women's Heart Disease
Women are just as vulnerable to heart disease as men. In fact, heart disease is the leading cause of death among both genders in the US. Symptoms of heart disease in women can feel much different than for men. For example, only about 50 percent of women report having chest pains before or during a heart attack. Instead, women often experience less obvious heart attack warning signs, such as unusual fatigue or dizziness.
