Joins Hospital Staff
Dr. Cordero notes he is impressed by the active cardiology program at Kent & Queen Anne's Hospital and is looking forward to the opening of the diagnostic cardiac catheterization lab that is part of the current building project. It will allow the two cardiologists to perform a diagnostic procedure called cardiac catheterization in which a slender needle, a catheter, is threaded through the blood vessels into the heart to diagnose and treat blockages. Currently they perform this procedure for local patients in a cath lab in Baltimore and they provide follow-up treatment locally.
The new physician
earned his bachelor's degree in general sciences and a medical degree
from the University of Puerto Rico Medical Science Campus in Rio Piedras
and completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at
the University of Puerto Rico Medical Science Center in San Juan.
