Learn about this Doctor

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 and heart attack prevention (coronary and 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 and is an Editor for the Journal of Invasive Cardiology. 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 using a novel method to protect the brain during carotid stenting.Read more

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
