CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital announced cardiologist José G. Díez, MD, FACC, FSCAI has joined the hospital as medical director of cardiovascular programs. Dr. Díez will be the only physician offering a full radial artery diagnostic and interventional program in the Katy area.
Radial artery catheterization is a form of catheterization increasingly being used for the diagnosis and treatment of arterial conditions such as coronary artery disease (heart attack, arterial blockages), heart failure, valvular and peripheral arterial disease. Although radial artery catheterization is becoming a more common practice, it is not widely available.
“We are honored to have Dr. Díez join CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital’s medical staff. His expertise will be enormously beneficial to patients in the area who face the challenges of cardiovascular diseases,” says Jack McCabe, chief executive officer of CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital.
Dr. Díez is triple-board-certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular diseases, and interventional cardiology; with recertification in cardiovascular diseases and interventional cardiology. He received his medical degree at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia and completed an internal medicine residency at Boston University School of Medicine. He fulfilled his cardiology fellowship at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital / Texas Heart Institute in Houston.
