Academic Interests

Dr. Nathan specializes in interventional cardiovascular procedures. Dr. Nathan performs a wide range of invasive coronary and peripheral vascular procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease including balloon angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, thrombectomy and intravascular ultrasound imaging. He is one of a limited number of interventional cardiologists who routinely performs angiogram procedures through a less invasive approach, using the artery of the wrist instead of the legs to gain access to the circulation. Dr. Nathan is also a general cardiologist who treats patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) as well as risk factors for heart disease. Dr. Nathan’s research interests include platelet biology, interventional device therapies and the use of antiplatelet and Antithrombotic (blood thinner) therapies in the management of acute coronary syndromes. Dr. Nathan currently serves as a principal investigator or co-investigator on several clinical trials focusing on antiplatelet therapies in patients with acute coronary syndromes, and clinical outcomes in patients who have had percutaneous coronary intervention after a heart attack.
