Care and Treatment of Heart Disease

Interventional Cardiology

Interventional cardiology refers to diagnostics and non-surgical treatments of the heart. Cardiac interventions are used to diagnosis and treat many types of heart disease. Stanford interventional cardiology is a world leader in percutaneous coronary revascularization, which re-establishes blood flow to the heart when its vessels have been damaged or blocked.

At Stanford, you can expect:

  • Leading-edge interventional cardiology diagnostic procedures such as fractional flow reserve measurement, optical coherence tomography, and identifying causes for chest pain in patients with normal appearing coronary arteries
  • Minimally invasive interventional cardiology techniques such as renal denervation therapy and Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), a new, less invasive method for replacing diseased aortic valves
  • Interventional biotherapies that promote blood vessel growth and stem cell therapy to improve heart muscle function and reduce angina (chest pain)

In addition, Stanford Cardiovascular Health offers state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization using low-radiation, high-resolution digital equipment that maximizes both patient safety and image quality.

Stanford's three cath labs perform more than 4,000 procedures annually, roughly half on an outpatient basis. Our fourth and fifth laboratories are dedicated to cardiac electrophysiology.

Stanford's Interventional Cardiology clinical services include procedures for the diagnosis of heart disease:

  • Stanford invasive diagnostic techniques
  • Fractional flow reserve
  • Intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography
  • Endothelial function and assessment of the coronary microvasculature

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

For Patients

We strive to see new patients within one to two weeks.  Each of our doctors sees patients in the clinic once a week. Other time obligations include performing procedures, routine patient management, and research and academic commitments.


If your medical records have not yet been received by our office, one of our staff will advise you on obtaining them, including:

  • A complete list of medications and allergies
  • Laboratory work within the last year
  • Echocardiogram and/or stress test (report and CD)
  • Coronary angiogram (report and CD)
  • Open heart surgery report
