Saratoga Hospital Expands Cardiac Team

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Dr. Rocco D. Grella has joined the interventional cardiology program at Saratoga Hospital, where he performs both emergency and elective interventional cardiac procedures.

He is the newest member of a team assembled to ensure that residents of Saratoga County have 24/7 access to emergency cardiac care.

Dr. Grella comes to Saratoga Hospital from Arnot Health, where he provided interventional cardiology services at three hospitals: Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital in Bath, and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Elmira. He also is on the medical faculty of Columbia University in New York City and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that deals specifically with minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures—including balloon angioplasty and stenting—to diagnose and treat heart conditions. Procedures are performed in high-tech cardiac catheterization laboratories by specially trained cardiologists.

A graduate of Long Island University C.W. Post College, Grella earned his medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn. After an internship and residency at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, Grella completed fellowship training in cardiology at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City and in interventional cardiology at University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester.

Grella is board certified in internal medicine, with subspecialty certifications in cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology. He is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology and the Society of Cardiac Angiography and Intervention. Grella is in practice with Saratoga Hospital Medical Group – Cardiology.
