ABOUT DR. KABACH:

Dr. Mohamad Kabach is a board-certified interventional cardiologist with extensive prestigious medical training and academic excellence.

Dr. Kabach earned his medical degree from Damascus University School of Medicine. He completed his postgraduate residency training and with honors at both the University of Miami and Virginia Commonwealth University.

Dr. Kabach has fellowship training in coronary and peripheral vascular intervention. He treats a variety of conditions, including complex coronary interventions especially via the radial artery (arm) approach. His particular interests are transradial cardiac catheterization, peripheral vascular disease and interventions, lower limb amputation prevention and pulmonary embolism therapies. In addition, Dr. Kabach treats variety of heart conditions with expertise in nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, heart failure, and preventive cardiology.

 

He has a keen interest in caring for patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) utilizing minimally invasive percutaneous interventional procedures. He performs limb salvage procedures to restore blood flow to the legs and feet in patients with advanced peripheral arterial disease. Such procedures facilitate wound healing in ulcers arising from poor blood supply and can obviate the need for amputation or surgery.

Dr. Kabach has published in many peer-reviewed journals and presented in numerous national and international cardiology conferences. His goal is to build long-term relationships with patients to understand their lifestyle, and improve their life span and quality of life.

 

During his spare time, he enjoys biking, hiking, playing soccer, and spending time with his family and friends.
