Dr. Huang-Joe Wang was graduated from the School of Medicine, China Medical University (1988-1995). After finishing his military service, Dr. Huang-Joe Wang received resident physician training in internal medicine and fellow training in cardiology in National University Hospital (1997-2002). After the training, he came back and has been serving in China Medical University Hospital (2002-now). Additionally, he pursued further study in Institute of Biotechnology, National Tsing Hua University and earned his doctoral degree (2005-2010). He clinically specializes in PCI for CAD, and the diagnoses and treatment of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, valvular heart disease and heart failure (HF). In addition to his rich experiences, Dr. Wang treats patients as family and devotes himself to the research and the teaching. In terms of the teaching, he took up the position of an associate professor in the School of Medicine, China Medical University (2012-now) and has been promoting a variety of clinical teaching methods. In the terms of research, he has been proactively conducting intensive researches in vascular biology and diabetic vasculopathy, and he was qualified and sponsored by the elite program to pursue further study in the laboratory of Emory university in the United States (Dr. Hanjoong Jo, Department of Biomedical Engineering and Division of Cardiology, Emory university). Dr. Huang-Joe Wang has won the poster competition held by Taiwan Society of Internal Medicine and Taiwan Society of Cardiology many times. He has published more than 30 papers on international academic journals. Dr. Huang-Joe Wang integrates basic and clinical researches to provide patients excellent treatment.
Dr. Lin specializes in acute care and treatment of heart disease. Dr. Lin has been instrumental in the treatment of arrhythmia, including the use of cardiac catheterization with high-frequency cauterization, combined with 3D stereotactic positioning, and systematic treatment of ventricular fibrillation, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and ventricular superior frequency. It is renowned for its implanted cardiac electronic devices that include the use of cardiac pacemakers for treatment of bradycardia, automatic defibrillator therapy of ventricular fibrillation, prevention of sudden death, and biventricular synchronized regulators for the treatment of heart failure. At present, he is also a member of the ROC Heart Association and the Taiwan Heart Association
Dr. Chiung-Ray Lu specializes in general cardiovascular disease, especially cardiac catheterization. Transcatheter cardiopulmonary interventional therapy include: 1) coronary balloon dilation and stent placement, 2) carotid artery and peripheral vascular treatment. The development of cardiac catheterization has led to the advancement of cardiovascular medicine and created many alternatives to surgery to reduce the suffering of patients with cardiovascular diseases and prolong the life of patients more effectively
Dr. Lien-Cheng Hsiao has served in our hospital since 2005. His specialty areas include the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease and heart failure. In addition, he also studied the minimally invasive cardiac catheterization. In addition to clinical experience, the patient is very careful and patient. Dr. Xiao studied at the University of London and Oxford University in the United Kingdom, and received a master's degree in genetics and a doctor's degree in heart medicine. His research interest is in regenerative medicine, hoping to use stem cell biology and tissue engineering, combining basic and clinical research to help improve the treatment of various heart diseases
Dr. Hung-Pin Wu specializes in the treatment of arrhythmia and the diagnosis utilizing cardiac imaging. He implements radiofrequency catheter ablation with 3D mapping system to treat tachycardia in patients with arrhythmia. Dr. Wu has rich experiences in cardiac device implantation including cardiac pacemaker, automatic defibrillator and dual chamber pacemaker. Dr. Wu is also expert in the echocardiography: in addition to the diagnosis of heart disease, he utilizes the stress echocardiography to diagnose coronary artery disease and severe valvular heart disease.
Dr Ke-Wei Chen was selected as a teaching physician in this hospital and specializes in cardiac catheterization for a variety of cardiovascular diseases, particularly coronary artery disease and acute myocardial infarction. From 2017 to Japan's famous cardiovascular center Kokura Memorial Hospital to study, including endovascular ultrasound (IVUS), optical coherence tomography (OCT) and other cardiac catheterization and complex coronary intervention. Intravascular imaging such as IVUS or OCT with angiography can provide more accurate diagnosis of coronary artery disease, understand atherosclerotic plaque characteristics and guide stent selection and placement to reduce complications. In patients with chronic kidney disease, IVUS-guided PCI reduces the amount of developer needed to protect renal function. Dr. Chen is also good at general cardiac ultrasound, interventional esophageal ultrasound and pressure ultrasound to diagnose a variety of heart valve diseases and ischemic heart disease. He is currently involved in various cardiovascular interventions including peripheral vascular therapy, transcatheter aortic valve replacement, left atrial appendage plug placement, and pulmonary embolism catheter thrombolysis.
