Interventional cardiology is a specialty branch of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter-based treatment of structural heart diseases. Over time, plaque can develop and layer in the coronary arteries, cutting off blood supply to the heart muscle. Memorial Health System's interventional cardiology team led by Joseph Mayo, MD, offers cardiac catheterization and angioplasty for emergency cases. Our team also participates in research studies through C-PORT with John Hopkins, improving cardiac care and offering angioplasty to select elective cases. In this informative podcast Dr. Joseph Mayo discusses the role of an interventional cardiologist in your heart care and the treatment options available at Memorial Health System.
