Heart and Cardiology Services

Care for All Types of Cardiovascular Conditions

the-heart-center-services-page-imageWe offer comprehensive prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the heart and blood vessels. Conditions we treat include:

Heart Disease: We provide world-class care and innovative for any type of heart or vascular disease, from coronary artery disease to hypertension to heart attack and stroke.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD): Buildup of plaque in the arteries that send blood to the heart cause them to harden and narrow. This puts patients at risk of a heart attack.

Congestive Heart Failure: A weakened heart muscle or other defect prevents the heart from pumping enough blood to the rest of the body. This can cause fluid buildup in the lungs or lower limbs.

Hypertension: Otherwise known as high blood pressure, hypertension can damage blood vessels and increase risk of heart attack and stroke.

Arrhythmia: An abnormal heart beat (too quick, too slow, or irregular) that impairs the heart’s ability to pump blood throughout the body.

High Cholesterol: High levels of cholesterol may buildup in your coronary arteries, causing them to harden and narrow, putting patients at risk of heart attack.

Heart Attack: When the heart does not get the oxygen it needs, often due to impaired blood flow in the coronary arteries, it damages the heart muscle. This is called a heart attack.

Stroke: Impaired blood flow to an area of the brain prevents it from getting the oxygen it needs, damaging brain tissue and affecting memory, muscle control, and more. This is called a stroke.

Best in Cardiac Care

Our team has the expertise, knowledge, and facilities for all types of testing and treatment, including:

Echocardiogram: An ultrasound that uses sound waves to create images of the heart, allowing doctors to evaluate heart function (strength, efficiency, size, shape, and more).

Cardiovascular CT Scan: An x-ray machine takes numerous photographs of the heart to produce a 3D image that doctors evaluate for heart disease including atherosclerosis.

Electrocardiogram (EKG): A test that measures the heart’s electrical activity, allowing doctors to evaluate heart rhythm and identify arrhythmia.

Angiogram: A special dye that shows up in x-rays is injected into the heart’s blood vessels, and an x-ray machine takes photographs of the blood vessels. This can be a diagnostic procedure or an aid when performing treatments.

Stenting: Small tubes called stents are placed in coronary arteries narrowed by plaque buildup, widening them and improving blood flow.

Pacemakers: A small device implanted into the chest to detect slow or irregular heartbeats. When it detects the abnormal heartbeat, it signals the heart so it beats at a regular pace.

Diabetes: Diabetes and heart disease are closely related. Regular cardiovascular care is vital to diabetics’ continued health and well-being.
