About Joseph Tuma, M.D., FACC, FSCAI

Joseph Tuma, M.D., is an interventional cardiologist and an expert in the field of coronary and structural interventional cardiology and peripheral vascular disease.

Originally from Rushville, Neb., he received his medical training at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, Neb. He went on to complete fellowship training programs in Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology at Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha and The Iowa Heart Hospital at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa. Dr. Tuma then completed advanced Interventional fellowship training in Structural Heart Interventions and Endovascular Therapy, also at Creighton University and Mercy Medical Center.

As an Interventional Cardiologist, Dr. Tuma specializes in the catheter-based treatment of cardiac and vascular patients, with a focus on new device therapies, the treatment of valvular and structural heart conditions, acute myocardial infarction and the management and treatment of peripheral arterial disease.

He is a recognized expert in the field of radial artery access and interventions and has lectured and directed training courses both nationally and internationally. He is a pioneer in the field of radial access for peripheral arterial interventions. He also co-chaired the inaugural World Radial Blitz in New Delhi, India, in September 2010. He has directed similar training courses in Italy, Germany, Ireland and across the United States.

Dr. Tuma has participated in the development of several cardiac and peripheral vascular interventional devices that are now commercially available and used for patient care on a routine basis. He has practiced in Rapid City, S.D., since 2007 and has introduced several new cardiac and vascular procedures to the patients of the Black Hills region.

As the site principal investigator on multiple multi-center clinical trials, Dr. Tuma has participated in several important studies focusing on valvular and structural heart disease, coronary artery disease and interventional treatment of peripheral arterial disease.
