Dr. Chirag Chauhan | Interventional Cardiologist | Rose Medical Center


My name is Chirag Chauhan.

0:00:07.839,0:00:12.690
I am an interventional cardiologist with Denver
Heart at Rose Medical Center and Swedish Medical

0:00:12.690,0:00:13.690
Center.

0:00:13.690,0:00:18.240
So as an interventional cardiologist, the
field has been changing significantly but

0:00:18.240,0:00:23.740
it was initially basically where we would
do balloons and stents and open up blockages

0:00:23.740,0:00:25.170
in heart arteries.

0:00:25.170,0:00:26.690
Now the field has expanded greatly.

0:00:26.690,0:00:30.520
I actually focus a little bit more with my
training.

0:00:30.520,0:00:36.609
Idid a fellowship in structural heart disease
at Cedars-Sinai where learned to do MitraClip.,

0:00:36.609,0:00:40.149
which is clipping the mitral valve for mitral
regurgitation.

0:00:40.149,0:00:44.980
Spent some time doing aortic valve replacements
through a percutaneous approach; through the

0:00:44.980,0:00:45.980
groin.

0:00:45.980,0:00:51.950
And also did PFO/ASD closures, WATCHMAN devices
which is a treatment for atrial fibrillation

0:00:51.950,0:00:54.079
to help reduce stroke risk.

0:00:54.079,0:01:00.450
Also spent some time doing endovascular techniques
to help peripheral vascular disease patients

0:01:00.450,0:01:04.040
to help treat critical limb ischemia and acute
limb ischemia.

0:01:04.040,0:01:10.909
Love medicine; love taking care of patients
and in the whole academic career always come

0:01:10.909,0:01:16.579
back to continuity of care and that’s what
lead me to cardiology specifically.

0:01:16.579,0:01:18.649
I like taking care of patients long-term.

0:01:18.649,0:01:24.799
I like having seeing patients grow and obviously
be treated through all their issues.

0:01:24.799,0:01:27.719
And that’s why cardiology and the acuteness
of cardiology really interested me.
