Meet our newest doctor with that tongue-twisting title
When your heart needs help in a hurry, an interventional cardiologist may be just the person to provide that help.
We are pleased to announce that a new interventional cardiologist has joined our team. Thierry Momplaisir, MD, is the director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital.
Explore, diagnose and treat
As an interventional cardiologist, Dr. Momplaisir specializes in procedures that use catheters—long, flexible tubes—to explore, diagnose and treat various heart conditions.
For example, with the aid of catheters threaded through blood vessels to the heart, he can:
- Open arteries during a heart attack
- Repair aortic aneurysms
- Perform heart valve replacements
- Repair certain heart defects
“My passion is in improving access to care within the community,” Dr. Momplaisir says. “Beyond that, my goals are to reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease in the community and to partner with Mercy Fitzgerald to educate patients so they can be empowered to take better care of themselves.”
