Dr. Feldman is an interventional cardiologist whose clinical and research accomplishments have distinguished him as a leader in Chicago's cardiology community, and internationally. Dr. Feldman says he is eager to continue his work with interventional therapies for patients with coronary and vascular artery diseases. "During the 80s and 90s, we saw a dizzying rate of new development. We've seen angioplasty grow from a therapy that was suited to maybe 5 percent of the population to one that is suited to roughly 50 percent of the population. Today, the marriage of drug therapy with interventional stenting is dramatically lowering the recurrence rate to less than 5 percent," says Dr. Feldman. He adds, "Part of my excitement about working at NorthShore University HealthSystem is that our cath lab has become a major participant in the development of new therapies, including carotid stenting, drug coated stents, closure devices for holes in the ehart, and new heart valve therapies." Dr. Feldman is recognized as a leader in the development of percutaneous therapy for valvular heart disease, including non-surgical valve repair for mitral regurgitation, and catheter based valve replacement for aortic stenosis.
