Interventional Cardiology
Jose A. Perez, MD, FACC, interest in cardiology took root in his teenage years when, as a high school student in San Antonio, he had the unusual opportunity to work with cardiologists at Brooks Air Force Base in the Aerospace School of Medicine. Cardiology soon became his consuming passion and calling in life. Today, Dr. Perez is particularly interested in the ever-evolving field of Interventional cardiology. In addition to treating blockages of coronary arteries, Dr. Perez also utilizes balloons and stents to open blocked arteries and improve circulation to the legs, kidneys, carotids and other peripheral arteries. His expertise in Interventional procedures has also expanded into the area of structural heart disease where, with the same technology used for opening blocked arteries, heart defects like patent foramen ovale, atrial septal defects and valve defects can be repaired with a minimally-invasive, percutaneous procedure. Dr. Perez also participates in cutting-edge research into new devices and techniques. Bioresorbable stents are a current area of interest and the subject of a new clinical trial involving Dr. Perez and Dr. Rabinowitz. Despite the promise and the hope for improved quality of life that these therapies offer, Dr. Perez cautions his patients that a successful intervention does not mean that they are healed. "In addition to all these high-tech things we do, it is still just as important to modify all the risk factors. So, the smoking, the high-fat diet, controlling diabetes and controlling weight-all those things are just as important as all the things that we do", he says. "Atherosclerosis is generally an ongoing, chronic process. It demands very close attention and follow-up. Future treatment will usually be necessary, whether it is for the same blockage area or a new one, but modifying your risk factors can have a significant effect on the progression of atherosclerosis and the eventual recurrence of blockages." Board certified in cardiovascular disease, Dr. Perez obtained further certification in the interventional cardiology subspecialty the first year it was available-in 1999.
