Making heart health a priority

Heart health is about more than just your heart. Blood pressure, cholesterol, family history and other factors all play important roles in keeping your heart strong. If you have questions about your heart health but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.

Heart & Vascular Conditions We Treat

  • Aneurysm: a bulging or a weakness in the wall of a blood vessel
  • Angina: chest pain that can extend to the left arm, shoulder or jaw
  • Arrhythmias: irregular heartbeat (too fast or slow, skipping beats), including atrial fibrillation
  • Cardiomyopathy: diseases in coronary muscle tissue, including an enlarged heart
  • Coronary heart disease: coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease and carotid artery disease
  • Heart attack: (myocardial infarction), an interruption of the blood supply to the heart’s muscle tissue
  • Heart failure: weakened or damaged heart muscle causing the heart to work too hard to keep up with the body’s blood demands
  • Peripheral artery and peripheral vascular disease: Narrowing of arteries that reduce blood flow to your limbs
  • Stroke: a blocked blood vessel depriving areas of the brain of oxygen; including ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs). Since this problem ends up affecting the brain, neurologists may collaborate with the heart specialist for stroke cases
  • Valvular heart disease: heart valve damage caused by rheumatic fever, infections, connective tissue disorders, radiation treatments or medications
