Dr. Wilentz's Experience

Research training, expertise and qualifications

Care Philosophy

We provide cardiovascular consultation, diagnosis and interventional care to the whole patient, understanding that diseases which affect the arteries of the heart may also affect those anywhere in the body. We offer invasive and medical treatments for stroke prevention (carotid stenting), opening of blocked arteries in the legs and the kidney arteries when required to treat high blood pressure or kidney failure. Dr. Wilentz has been a researcher and active in the fields of coronary and carotid artery diagnosis and treatment. He is the author of articles on the use of intravascular ultrasound and coronary flow measurement to determine which blockages really need a stent. He has also been co-author of a book on carotid stenting, and articles on brain protection during carotid procedures. He is currently researching a method to understand which carotid plaques are likely to cause stroke. =Consultative Cardiology
