About me

Dr. Thomas Ports is director of interventional cardiology and co-director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory for adult patients. Since performing the first coronary angioplasty at UCSF Medical Center in 1979, he has accumulated vast experience in performing catheter interventions. (Angioplasty is surgical opening or repair of blood vessels.) In addition to elective angioplasty, he specializes in cardiac catheterization for acute myocardial infarction (commonly called heart attack), balloon valvuloplasty of stenotic (narrowed) valves and alcohol septal ablation in obstructive cardiomyopathy.

Ports is frequently called upon to give second opinions in difficult cases.
