Cardiologists examine patients and order tests to diagnose, treat and prevent heart problems. Results of the tests and exams determine whether you can be treated with medication and lifestyle changes.
Some cardiolgists can perform minor operations but are limited in the types of procedures they can perform. If surgery is needed, or if a problem is found that requires more specialized treatment, you will be referred to an interventional cardiologist, an electrophysiology cardiologist, or another doctor.

Interventional cardiologists undergo one to three years of additional training after the three-year residency, and can perform more advanced surgeries. These include valve repairs, atheroectomy (plaque removal), balloon angioplasty and mesh stent placement to relieve blockages.

An electrophysiology cardiologist specializes in the electrical stimulus to the heart. They look for irregular heartbeats and other problems that could cause cardiac arrest. They perform tests such as an echocardiogram, a painless, non-invasive test that uses sound waves to view an image of the heart. Electrophysiology cardiologists perform surgeries to install pacemakers and defibrillators and prescribe drug therapies, among other treatments, to reduce the incidence of heart failure.Back to Top
