In 1997, his group established a practice at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital.  Dr. Phiambolis became the Director of the Department of Medicine, chief of cardiology and director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory.  During his tenure at Mercy Fitzgerald, he established an open heart surgical program and an Interventional Cardiology program.

 

In 2006, Dr. Phiambolis returned back to Lankenau Medical Center where he established a Cardiac CT Angiography program for Main Line Health and now is the director of that program.  More recently, he has established the Advanced Lipid Clinic for Main Line Health and initiated the new cholesterol program with PCSK9 therapy.

 

Dr. Phiambolis remains very active in research and education at Lankenau Medical Center as director of the Cardiac CT Angiography program and the Advanced Lipid Clinic.
