A cardiologist is a physician specially trained and certified to treat heart and vascular problems. Cardiology encompasses various specialties that cater to the diverse needs of patients with heart conditions.
A Cardiothoracic Surgeon, also known as a CT surgeon, undergoes training to perform significant heart and valve surgeries. Doctors treat sick and injured organs in the chest. These organs include the esophagus, trachea, lungs, pleura, diaphragm, heart and blood vessels. The pleura are protective membranes for the lungs.
An electrophysiologist or EP physician is a cardiologist. They focus on diagnosing and treating heart electrical issues. These issues can lead to an irregular heartbeat. These problems include atrial fibrillation and ventricular fibrillation or sudden cardiac arrest. Both of these conditions can lead to heart attacks and even death.
An interventional cardiologist receives education to identify and manage heart disease and other issues by utilizing treatments based on catheterization. In the catheterization lab, they perform procedures such as opening blocked arteries and restoring blood flow. They also do stenting to insert a tube-like device in blocked arteries to keep them clear. And they treat heart valve and peripheral artery disease.
Peripheral Vascular Interventionalist
A peripheral vascular interventionalist is a doctor who focuses on diagnosing and treating vascular disease in various parts of the body. These include the carotid arteries and the aorta in the abdomen and legs. A patient would see a peripheral cardiologist to check for peripheral artery disease.
