JOPLIN, Mo. – Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute is pleased to welcome Dr. Vigyan Bang, a board-certified interventional cardiologist, to its medical staff. Interventional cardiologists perform many interventional procedures, including cardiac catheterization to diagnose and treat heart disease, stenting, angiogram, angioplasty and intravascular ultrasound. They also provide general and preventive cardiology care.
Dr. Bang, the son of two physicians, said he is looking forward to working with Freeman and the community.
“This health system is very intertwined in the community,” Dr. Bang said. “The cardiology group are well-trained physicians who work well together to take care of complex patients. Freeman gives me the opportunity to hone my sub-specialty training, which is structural cardiology.”
After earning his medical degree at Seth GS Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, India, Dr. Bang completed his residency in internal medicine. He then completed a fellowship in cardiovascular diseases at Beth Israel Lahey Health in Cambridge, Mass., and a fellowship in interventional/structural cardiology at University of Maryland Medical Center, in Baltimore, Md. Dr. Bang holds board certifications in internal medicine, echocardiography, cardiology and interventional cardiology.
Dr. Bang’s clinic is located at Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute, 1102 West 32nd Street, Suite 300. He is currently accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment, call 417.347.5000.
