Interventional cardiologists are medical doctors who specialize in
performing surgical or invasive procedures—such as cardiac catheterization,
angioplasty, and stenting—to diagnose and treat heart disease.
Interventional cardiologists can be board-certified as internists
or interventional cardiologists through the Board of Internal Medicine, which
is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
