Alan W. Heldman, M.D. (1962-) is an American interventional cardiologist.

Heldman graduated from Harvard College, University of Alabama School of Medicine, and completed residency and fellowship training at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He held positions on the faculty of Johns Hopkins from 1995 to 2007. In 2007 he became Clinical Chief of Cardiology at the University of Miami, Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine.

He published one of the first studies showing that a drug-coated stent (now known as a drug-eluting stent) could prevent restenosis1. His research interests include delivery of stem cells to the heart for repair of myocardial infarction2.

His clinical interests include high risk and complex coronary intervention, and treatment of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, including with alcohol septal ablation3.
