Shawn Yazdani MD, FACC, FSCAI

Formerly cardiology specialist at INOVA®, where he started the first Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO) program in the area, Dr. Shawn Yazdani is today cofounder of Carient Heart & Vascular and leading the way for new interventional techniques in northern Virginia.

Established in 2013, Carient Heart & Vascular represents a team of some of the best cardiovascular specialists in the region, providing comprehensive, award-winning care.

The group was formed when two prominent cardiovascular practices, Virginia Cardiovascular Associates (est. 1999) and Virginia Cardiovascular (est. 1997) joined together to provide a broader scope of service and bring the latest advances in cardiovascular care to Virginia.

Recognized as top physicians in their field by Castle Connolly, the Washingtonian, the Washington Post magazine and Northern Virginia magazine, the group provides leadership and research support to advance cardiovascular medicine and successful, evidence-based outcomes.
