Our Doctors

Care and Treatment of Heart Disease


Stanford's Interventional Cardiology clinical services include procedures for the treatment of heart disease. Most patients scheduled for coronary intervention are admitted for same-day procedures. A few procedures include renal denervation therapy bifurcation, left main coronary, and other types of complex stenting.

Treatments include:

Alcohol septal ablation

A procedure in which ethanol (alcohol) is injected into an artery to shrink the thickened heart muscle that obstructs the outflow of blood from the heart.

Atrial septal defect (ASD) closure

A surgical procedure to close a hole in the wall between the right and left atria (the two upper chambers of the heart).

Balloon aortic valvuloplasty

A method used to temporarily relieve aortic stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve) by inflating a balloon within the narrowed valve.

Balloon mitral valvuloplasty

A procedure to thread a balloon into the heart through the femoral vein in the groin to improve blood flow across the mitral valve.

Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery

A surgical procedure used in which the blocked portion of the coronary artery is bypassed with another piece of blood vessel.

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD)

A mechanical device which aids in the pumping function of the blood.

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure

A procedure in which a specialized device is used to close a common small tunnel in the heart called a PFO, which has been linked to strokes.

Percutaneous coronary revascularization

Procedures in which blood flow to the heart is restored by removing or bypassing blockages in the coronary artiers.

Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty

A procedure in which a catheter is used to open blocked coronary arteries and restore arterial blood flow to the heart tissue.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)

A minimally invasive surgical procedure in which a damaged valve is repaired with a replacement valve without removing the old, damaged valve.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)

A less invasive procedure for patients with severe aortic stenosis, using an artificial aortic valve.

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
