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.
