Interventional cardiologist Dr. Srinivas Vengala has joined St. Joseph’s Mercy and the Mercy Heart and Vascular Center.
Dr. Vengala comes to Mercy after spending the past three years in the Department of Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. At UAB, he was a fellow and assistant professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Disease.
As an interventional cardiologist, Dr. Vengala deals with catheter-based treatment of heart diseases. Some of the advantages of minimally invasive interventional cardiology are decreased pain, less risk of infection, avoidance of large scars and shorter post-operative recovery times.
Dr. Vengala is also adding to the services previously offered by the Mercy Heart and Vascular Center.
