Interventional Cardiology

The Interventional Cardiology Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center uses minimally invasive techniques to treat heart and blood vessel diseases. Our experienced specialists often can replace heart valves and repair other heart defects in the cardiac catheterization lab (“cath lab”) without traditional surgery.

Why Choose Interventional Cardiology at Vanderbilt

  • Recognized care

    Vanderbilt is consistently ranked among the nation’s best by leading authorities on healthcare quality. People from throughout the Southeast and across the country rely on us for the best and most innovative care possible. 

  • Knowledge and experience

    We perform more procedures every year in our cardiac catheterization lab than any other hospital in the region. Our vast experience means expert care for you. We welcome patients with even the most advanced or complex heart conditions, who may have been turned away by other hospitals.

  • Skilled clinicians

    Our doctors have specialized training in interventional cardiology. As leading experts, our doctors also serve in the organizations responsible for establishing national guidelines for patient care.

  • Innovation

    We offer advanced therapies that are not widely available. For example, we were the first in Nashville to consistently perform interventional cardiology procedures through a wrist artery instead of a leg artery. We also were first in Tennessee to use minimally invasive catheter techniques to replace aortic valves and to treat mitral valve insufficiency.

  • Team approach

    We work together to ensure that you receive the comprehensive care you need. Our team members collaborate with each other, as well as with experts in other medical disciplines, to provide you with individual care that addresses your unique needs.
