Lifesaving Heart & Vascular Care
Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that uses catheters (thin, flexible tubes) to diagnose and repair damaged vessels and other heart structures, often eliminating the need for surgery. At Cape Cod Healthcare's Heart & Vascular Institute, we do this very well. It’s where you want to be in the event of a life-threatening heart event.
Recognized for Heart Attack Response
Our interventional cardiology program, led by Richard Zelman, MD, FACC, is widely recognized for its consistently superior level of heart attack care. The American College of Cardiology (ACC) has ranked us No. 1 in the country in outcomes for percutaneous coronary interventions (angioplasties)—the fastest and most effective response to heart attacks. Our outcomes consistently surpass ACC guidelines, which means we not only save lives but minimize damage to the heart muscle and preserve quality of life after an attack.
