Winchester Medical Center’s Division of Cardiology offers a full range of cutting edge treatment options that include both medical and interventional techniques.

Interventional cardiologists use minimally invasive methods to clear blockages in the coronary arteries, namely angioplasty and stenting, to treat peripheral arterial disease without opening the chest for surgery. These types of procedures don’t take place in an operating room. Interventional cardiologists perform minimally invasive techniques in the catheterization lab, or cath lab as it is more commonly known.
