Interventional cardiologists perform the balloon valvuloplasty procedure and other minimally invasive procedures that rely on catheters and small incisions instead of traditional surgery.

Cardiac surgeons also perform the balloon valvulplasty procedure in some cases of stenosis as an alternative to surgery for patients who, because of age or disability, are not good surgical candidates.
