The importance of having proper and timely follow up with a cardiologist after a heart attack cannot be overstated. Many of the primary treatments plans for heart attacks include the placement of a stent during a procedure called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Having a stent requires the daily and consistent use of certain medications that prevent blood clots and additional heart attacks, as well as consistent, personalized cardiac care by a cardiologist. It also requires careful mitigation of risk factors for future heart attacks, and often adjustments to one’s lifestyle. With over 20 years of experience in performing coronary interventions and procedures for patients having heart attacks, Dr. Devineni and our team always aim to make recovering from a heart attack as comfortable, stress-free, and most importantly, reliable and effective of a process as possible for each of our patients.
