Professional Bio

Frederick S. Ling, M.D. is an Associate Professor of medicine in the Cardiology Unit and Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. He joined the faculty in 1993 after training at Yale University in both cardiovascular medicine and interventional cardiology. Dr. Ling specializes in all aspects of interventional cardiology in the evaluation and treatment of coronary artery disease.
Under his direction, the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory currently consists of four labs, but is undergoing expansion. All angiographic studies are now digitally archived and networked for immediate access and review.

A computerized reporting system with a central database tracks patients for data collection and research. The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory also has been at the core of Strong Memorial Hospital's successful clinical program to treat acute myocardial infarction by primary angioplasty or stenting.
