Cardiology 101 : What Does a Cardiologist Do?

Cardiologists are licensed M.D. residency trained physicians who work to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases of the cardiovascular system. There are two main categories of treatment and services - invasive and non-invasive treatments. An invasive cardiologist will perform surgical procedures. A non-invasive cardiologist will diagnose and examine patients for cardiovascular system ailments. Cardiologists also work towards rehabilitating patients who have recently undergone heart trauma or cardiovascular surgery.
