Dr. Rushi Parikh is an interventional cardiologist and advanced heart failure specialist who practices in Westwood and Torrance. He uses invasive evaluation and treatment methods to prevent and manage coronary artery disease, heart failure, and structural heart disease. Specifically, he performs coronary angiography, complex angioplasty/stenting, minimally invasive treatment of aortic valve disease (TAVR), and implantation of heart failure monitoring devices such as CardioMEMS.
